How does the company support your career growth?

There’s so much room to grow at SpotHero. From the very beginning, I was encouraged to think about my career goals and steps I could take towards achieving them. I recently made the transition to a new team, and everyone has been incredibly supportive as I learn a new skill set and look to further grow my career!

What is your vision for the company?

I joined SpotHero to contribute to the future of mobility as I imagine walking down the street with my pre-school aged children one day and being able to point out aspects of the mobility ecosystem that I played a role in building. In this vein, I believe SpotHero will emerge as the platform that powers the last quarter mile of mobility.
