Who we are
Getaround connects safe, convenient, and affordable cars with people who need them to live and work. Our community includes guests who rely on our cars for on-demand mobility and hosts who share cars on our platform including those who operate their own car-sharing businesses.
Our connected car technology allows guests to book and unlock a wide variety of vehicles directly from our app without ever having to meet anyone in person, carry an access card, wait in line, or coordinate picking up keys. Cars are parked 22 hours a day on average. When we share cars, we don’t need as many on the road, which means fewer accidents, reduced traffic, and less space required for parking. Car sharing modernizes mobility by allowing people to connect multiple forms of efficient transportation for any type of use case.
Studies have shown that when car sharing is available, people drive less and drive vehicles more appropriate for their use case, which can reduce household carbon emissions by up to 40%. Also, shared cars are used more frequently and retired more quickly, accelerating the adoption of newer, more energy- efficient vehicles.
Can you design from empathy to iteration? We’re looking for people that love shipping a well-crafted product experience.
The Getaround experience design team is a small, but mighty and growing, group of human-centered designers that value collaboration through interaction design, visual design, research, and strategy to make amazing digital products.
Who are you? As a product designer with at least 5 years shipping digital products, you work with product, data, and engineering teams to craft beautiful experiences that facilitate what users want to do, and delight them along the way. You cultivate a deep empathy for people and their needs and translate this understanding into inventive designs for digital products.
You love the idea of tackling challenging problems and are comfortable with ambiguity. You’re excited to dive into sketching and storyboarding as much as designing microinteractions, building visual design systems, and prototyping digital experiences. You aren’t afraid of talking to end-users or digging through data to direct your design decisions, but get most excited when you’re in maker mode, crafting product interfaces and solving product use cases.
You will help evolve our product design language as we move forward into new carsharing experiences. You are eager to apply your craft to not only pixels and vectors, but also the future of transportation.
At Getaround, we are proud to be an Equal Opportunity Employer. We believe that no matter your race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status, your perspective has value.
Come join us in continuing to make Getaround a great place to work!
