SHARE NOW stands for the world’s first free-floating car-sharing service – the biggest innovation in the car business since the invention of the car. We come from a long line of pioneers in the car-making industry and challenging the status quo is how we like to play. Our mission now is personal freedom: To make it possible for anybody to drive in the city without breaking the bank – or the environment.
Our global headquarters is in Berlin, Germany, and we operate across Europe. We offer an exciting, fast-growing environment in which everyone has equal opportunity to bring ideas to the table. We believe the future is about personal freedom and that everyone has a role to play. We are more than 500 employees of over 30 nationalities spread out across the globe. You could be one of them.
Our squads of designers, engineers, and product owners are responsible for all customer-facing touchpoints for our private and corporate customers; from the website and registration to the app and vehicles that hundreds of thousands of people rely on every day. While we obtain a service mindset considering both the front- and backstage collaborating closely with our colleagues in business applications, we are specialized in the end customer experience. We are obsessed with delivering value to our customers and to the business – we do this by constantly evolving our service, through testing and validating our assumptions.
