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.
Toyota Motor North America will join founding partner Fiat Chrysler Automobiles in supporting the National Safety Council's Check to Protect campaign, an initiative designed to reduce the number of open recall vehicles on the nation's roadways.
