Car & Away
is a revolutionary new start-up which, at its heart, enables private car owners to rent their cars directly to others when they are not using them. Think Airbnb for cars.
Our brand purpose is to become the smartest peer-to-peer car sharing community globally.
We believe the world needs a smarter way to own and use cars. Car ownership costs are high, yet these cars are only used for 4% of their lifetime. There are 31m in the UK and 1bn worldwide highlighting a chronic inefficiency of private car ownership and a huge opportunity around unlocking the idle capacity in these cars. We aim to reduce the number of cars on the road by 20%.
The Car & Away community was born at UK airports where we offer car owners a new choice to park and earn
by renting their cars out whilst away. Using these cars we disrupt the traditional car rental companies by offering renters the exact car they choose, no queues, and no hidden extras, so they can drive away in under 5 minutes - guaranteed.
Stage two is where it gets really big – activating airport-acquired owners to rent their cars from home becoming the forefront of a larger community that will ultimately revolutionise car ownership across the country.
This is a rare opportunity to join an exciting business that will transform the way in which we own and use cars. Find out more about us on YouTube
As our Product Owner & Project Manager, you’ll be working with our internal & external development teams building our new world-class, app-centric, car sharing platform. Working closely with our Head of Product & UX and CTO, you’ll bridge the gap between the customer and the development team, both providing the informed feedback necessary for customer centric system development and managing the agile development process. This is a great opportunity to bring your experience and passion to help develop a product capable of inspiring owners and renters to become our greatest advocates. We want people to rave about the experience as much as the concept.
