    Today, Zipcar provides hundreds of thousands of people with a viable alternative to traditional car ownership, saving them money, time and headaches. Around the world—from coast to coast, across Canada, the UK, and college campuses in between—people are making the decision to live car free and enjoying the convenience and environmental benefits of having “wheels when you want them”.

    As we continue to grow our operations, we are looking for talented, passionate people with great ideas to join the family. We aim to create an environment that is supportive, diverse, and as fun as our brand. If you’re results-oriented, dedicated, and ready to contribute to an unparalleled member experience for our community of Zipsters, we encourage you to apply.

    The Team

    Team fit is important to us. We’re looking for engineers who take pride in their work, who want to learn something new several times a day, and who always strive to do a better job. Here’s what we believe in – if you agree, then you might enjoy working here:

    We believe in people. We empower them to make decisions and we invest time and money in training. We think we make better decisions as a team, so we support each other, share ideas, collaborate and pair program to get the most out of our teammates.
    Our dress code is informal, our working hours are flexible, and you can choose your own MacBook and IDE. Work how you work best.
    We don’t claim to be perfect and we’re always trying to improve how we work, so if you think your experience could help us out with any of the above then we’d love to hear from you!
