Best-in-class medical and dependent care

In North America, we provide 100% paid premiums for basic medical, dental, and vision insurance (for individuals) and 50% of premium coverage for dependents.

Flexible spending account

A pre-tax benefit account that's used to pay for eligible medical, dental, and vision care expenses that are not covered by your health care plan or elsewhere.

401(k)

Our 401(k) is based on a low-fee, index fund approach. That means more of your money goes towards retirement instead of a money manager.

Paternal and maternal leave

Open vacation policy

We have an open vacation policy so you can take the time off you need! To ensure fairness across all teams, we mandate that everyone takes a minimum of 10 business days a year.

Gym reimbursements

Getaround has a negotiated gym membership with Fitness SF. Remote employees can receive $25 off their gym memberships.

Commuter benefits

Commuter benefits allow you to allocate a fixed amount of pre-tax dollars for eligible work-related transit and parking expenses. Getaround’s monthly transit contribution is $75 towards parking or transit.

Dog-friendly headquarters

Education stipend

Education stipend: $600 per calendar year to be used for self-directed development opportunities.

Quarterly company parties
