Be a part of something bigger

We empower our employees to join our mission to make cities better places to live. We combine hard work with hackathons, collaboration with camaraderie, and results with rewards. We get things done. But we have a ton of fun doing 

Zipcar Culture

Take tech to new places

Our tech talent is top notch. We’ve been doing the internet of things since 2000, and we continue to innovate on what you can do with technology and cars. It’s how we pioneered the car-sharing industry, kick started the sharing economy and still change the world of mobility every day.

Do good for your city

Locally, we help urbanites get around with more convenience, less traffic, and on-demand access to vehicles right in their neighborhood.

Change the world

Globally, our community of over a million Zipsters in over 500 cities and towns around the world leads to lower carbon emissions, less congestion, and a greener planet. “Act local. Think global.” isn’t just a mantra—it’s our daily driving mission.

Come do what you love

At Zipcar, we’ll push you out of your comfort zone to work on cross-functional teams to deliver on projects you’ve never even dreamed of. Our culture is filled with fun ways to refresh—after all, fueling the future of mobility takes energy. 
(And of course, we break for Guitar Hero jams, happy hours, and chili cook-offs.)

Our mission

We're on a mission to enable simple and responsible urban living—a future filled with more car-sharing members than car owners in major cities across the globe.

We do this every day by:

  • Delivering on-demand vehicles that support environmental sustainability.
  • Helping members save time, hassle and money in their everyday transportation.
  • Freeing up city space through strategies that consider campus, urban, residential, commercial and city planning needs.
  • Becoming a premier employer for talented, passionate people who thrive on changing the world for good.
  • Living our core values, as a company and as individual team members from the Big Apple to Big Ben

Causes we support

Plants in pots

Environmental impact

Since 2000, our mission has been to create better neighborhoods. So we set out to cut carbon emissions, reduce traffic and promote multi-modal travel. Thanks to our over one million members, we proudly lower CO2 emissions by 1.6 billion lbs per year and take away the need for more than 415,000 personally owned cars.


Rainbow heart

Embracing equality

Equality shouldn’t be up for debate. That’s why Zipcar was an early supporter of LGBTQ organizations and equal rights. We continue to show our support at Pride events and in how we do business every day. We believe people can overcome anything on their own—but we’ll always be stronger together.



Zipcar grant program

Zipcar helps non-profits do more with simple access to on-demand transportation. Through our Students with Drive program with Ford, over $1 million has been donated to more than 400 student organizations at universities across the United States. And our grant program donates hundreds of thousands in driving credit to non-profit groups across North America, supporting a variety of causes. Need some help with your charity organization? Tell us how we can help and apply for a grant.
