The Connected Car API for Developers

Smartcar is the car API for developers. We empower developers to build the future of mobility.

Smartcar’s platform allows web and mobile apps to locate and unlock cars using simple HTTP requests. Our API works without aftermarket hardware, allowing developers to locate, unlock, and read the odometer from cars of 14 brands in a single integration.

Founded in 2015, Smartcar has raised $12M in seed and series A funding from the venture capital firms Andreessen Horowitz (a16z) and New Enterprise Associates (NEA). 

Our customers range from early-stage startups to large enterprises. To name a few, the mobile car wash service Spiffy, the peer-to-peer car sharing marketplace Turo, and the oil and gas company Shell are using our API to build innovative mobility experiences.

As a Full-Stack Engineering Intern in Fall 2019, you will work closely with our design and engineering teams to build simple, functional user interfaces for our customers. You will report directly to Smartcar's CTO, Sanketh.

We'd love for you to join us.
