Getaround Establishes New Headquarters in San Francisco

Getaround, a peer-to-peer car-sharing company, named its new San Francisco office as its official headquarters.

The office is equipped with open spaces, high ceilings, a gym area, kitchen and roof deck to create an open-work environment for its employees. The walls feature “Idea Paint” technology, which turns space into white-boards, encouraging collaboration and creativity, the company reports.

The move also includes a partnership with San Francisco-based Meraki, a cloud-based device management company, to handle Getaround’s increasing data needs.

Currently, Getaround has four offices: San Francisco, San Diego, Portland, Ore. and Austin, Texas. The team consists of 30 full-time employees, but expects to add five more jobs and to create more local job opportunities as it continues to grow.
