About HyreCar

HyreCar operates a carsharing marketplace for ridesharing drivers – think Airbnb for the 1/3 of all Lyft and Uber drivers who don’t own their vehicles! Our business model allows for unlimited fleet scalability to meet the growing transportation demands across the nation, and we sit on the cutting edge of the future of transportation; ushering in the dawn of an autonomous vehicle world for vehicle manufacturers, fleet managers, rental car companies and auto dealerships. The future of transportation is ACES (Autonomous, Connected, Electric, Shared) and HyreCar is positioned to address these tectonic changes through technology solutions.


Similar to Amazon, HyreCar went public early in our corporate life cycle; listing on the NASDAQ New Markets Exchange in 2018 and trading under the stock symbol HYRE. As a public company we bring stability and financial security to shareholders, business partners and employees in a fast moving and diverse environment. To address growing demand for our world-class services, we are implementing new technology solutions and investing heavily in AI, big data and telematics; building the ideal team to help expand the definitive platform for fleet logistics. This is an exciting opportunity to join a fast moving company during a period of explosive growth!
