Founded in 2015, Smartcar is the leading developer platform for mobility businesses. We have raised $12 million in Seed and Series A funding from Andreessen Horowitz and NEA.

From auto insurance to fleet management, businesses of all kinds use our APIs to verify vehicle mileage, issue digital car keys, manage EV charging, and track fleets. To name a few, the peer-to-peer car sharing marketplace Turo, the auto insurance provider Paydrive, and the electricity provider Krafthem use our platform to build and scale their mobility services.

By making it easy to connect to their customers’ vehicles, Smartcar allows these companies to focus on what’s important: building the future of mobility.

As Smartcar’s Engineering Manager for the Experience Team, you will have the opportunity to lead all user-facing product development at Smartcar. You will be reporting directly to our CTO and Co-founder, Sanketh.

This is a Northern California-based remote role.
