About Scoop

There's a problem that's been unsolved for 40 years. It's called carpooling - heard of it? We know you have. But now, there's a team of engineers, marketers, and business people actually making headway on this problem. With over 400,000 rides done to date, the Scoop team has made carpooling easy for the first time - and we need an awesome engineer to help in the fight against traffic. Maybe it's you? The Scoop team has a simple mission: to eliminate traffic and reimagine transportation, giving life back to commuters and communities. Two years after our San Francisco Bay Area launch, Scoop has become a vibrant community of coworkers and neighbors that have shared hundreds of thousands of commutes. Our mobile-first commuting technology powers the carpooling programs of many of the Bay Area’s largest employers, including Cisco, Tesla, Workday, and Salesforce.
