At Getaround, we’re building a global platform to enable a future where all cars are shared. There are more than 1 billion cars in the world, and these cars are parked, on average, more than 95% of the time. With instant and keyless carsharing via our patented hardware and software platform and our industry-leading mobile apps, we’re helping communities around the world share these underutilized resources to reduce their vehicle footprint while increasing mobility solutions.
Getaround is looking for a bright, energetic, and passionate individual to join our mission and empower carsharing everywhere. Thousands of car owners entrust Getaround to safely manage and rent out their cars every day. As a Getaround Dispatcher, you will help direct fleet resources in the field in real-time. Your actions and decisions will directly affect the success of our business. You will be dispatching the fleet team to handle infleeting appointments that directly impact our growth, as well as organizing the fleet team around managing and servicing cars in your market. This means one day you'll be scheduling the Field Specialists to take an owner’s car in for servicing, and the next, coordinating the recharge of a Tesla Model S.
We need you to be willing to go the extra mile, to have an almost maniacal approach to getting the details right, and be an excellent communicator. And, of course, you need to be passionate about Getaround's mission to bring peer-to-peer carsharing onto the global stage.
