Getaround est la plateforme d’autopartage leader dans le Monde avec une communauté de plus de 5 millions d’utilisateurs se partageant des milliers de voitures dans plus de 300 villes aux Etats-Unis et en Europe.

L’app Getaround permet aux citadins qui ne possèdent pas de voiture de réserver un véhicule instantanément, que ce soit pour quelques heures ou quelques jours, directement de leur smartphone.

Créée en 2009, la startup a connu une très forte croissance: elle est maintenant présente dans 8 pays et s’est récemment étendue en Europe avec l’acquisition des startups d’autopartage Drivy et Nabobil.

Le siège est à San Francisco et l’équipe possède des bureaux à Paris, London, Berlin, Barcelone, et Oslo.


We believe in a world where all cars are shared. Carsharing empowers people to get going in a smarter, easier way, while also having a positive impact on the environment and making cities more liveable. It’s this vision that propels us forward and inspires us to think even bigger.

Since April 2019, Drivy is part of Getaround. Together, we’re the world's leading carsharing platform with a community of more than 5 million users sharing over 11,000 connected cars across 7 countries.

Our team is collaborative, positive, curious, and engaged. We think fast, laugh often, and are looking for like-minded people to join us in our mission to disrupt car ownership and make cities better.
