Who We Are
Founded in 2015, Wrench's mission is to remove the hassle of car ownership. We believe that using technology we can really change how car owners get their vehicles serviced. Gone are the days of having to visit the shop for auto maintenance and repair.
Wrench is a full-service automotive shop without the shop. We service an impressive variety of cars and trucks, offering everything from oil changes and preventive maintenance to brake jobs and no-starts. Our ASE-certified mobile mechanics can perform most jobs right in your driveway or in your office’s parking lot, freeing you up to spend your time as you wish. We are currently in seven major markets - Seattle, Austin, Dallas, Houston, Portland, Phoenix, Sacramento, and San Diego, and are continuing to expand. Nominated in 2017 for GeekWire's Startup of the Year and awarded a spot among the Seattle 10, we are a fast-growing and nimble startup looking for bar-raisers and pacesetters to join our team.
We believe this is just the beginning...
What to Expect during the Interview Process
1) Resume review
- Wrench screens applicant's resumes/profiles to find those who might be a good fit for the position. If there is a potential match, we'll reach out to set up a phone screen.
2) Phone Screen
- This is a time for you to learn more about Wrench and the specific details of the position. We'll ask questions to learn about your experience and if Wrench would be a good fit. This will include some technical questions to gauge your strengths and ability to quickly solve a problem. You should be prepared to solve a short coding problem using a shared workspace like collabedit or similar program.
3) Code Assignment (Optional)
- Depending on the number of applicants, we may ask you to do a short homework assignment. This will be emailed to you and should take 1-2 hours.
4) In person interview
- A limited number of those we phone screen will be brought in for an in-person interview. We'll normally ask you to come in the morning and meet with the team in groups of 2-3. You'll be asked about your experience and expected to write some code on the white board. We understand that the white board isn't the best judge of coding ability, but hopefully it gives us insight into your problem solving ability! Depending on the length of the interview, we'll take you out to lunch.
- After the in-person interview, we'll let you know one way or the other!
