We believe car buying should be fun, fair, and accessible to everyone. We’ve set out to transform an industry, using technology to bring transparency and convenience to the car buying process.

About the role:
Help Shift transform the consumer experience around buying and selling used cars. We’ve set out to flip the script on this notoriously customer-unfriendly industry by creating a used car marketplace that puts customers at the center, aligns with them instead of against them, and creates value for them at every step in the process. We... want every Shift customer to love the car they buy from us, and the experience of buying it from Shift.
