Today, Zipcar provides hundreds of thousands of people with a viable alternative to traditional car ownership, saving them money, time and headaches. Around the world—from coast to coast, across Canada, the UK, and college campuses in between—people are making the decision to live car free and enjoying the convenience and environmental benefits of having “wheels when you want them”.

We’re working to transform Zipcar from its ‘startup roots’ into ‘a world-class engineering organization’. We're building a global platform to take the car-sharing and Zipcar experience all over the world.

The technology choices we’re standardizing on are:

Native Mobile applications on Android and iOS. Our goal is to launch new functionality on ‘mobile first’ wherever it makes sense.
