Our Benefits

Competitive salary

We believe talented people deserve to get paid accordingly. We reward exceptional performance with bonuses and incentives.

Flexible work arrangements

Work from your couch, or ours. Our office in Vancouver has flexible seating, hotdesks, and collaborative spaces. We also offer the opportunity to work remotely. We have team members in Europe, the United States and the rest of Canada.

Regular feedback

We support open communication between team members through bi-weekly 1:1s. We also schedule monthly performance check-ins, as well as regular all-hands meetings, so you always know where we’re going and how you’re doing.

Learning opportunities

We hold bi-weekly lunch-and-learn events. In the past we’ve tackled fascinating topics such as modern art, investing 101, diversity & inclusion, and gymnastics.

Food, so much food

Our kitchen is always stocked with fresh fruits and vegetables, healthy snacks like popcorn, and top-notch coffee from British Columbia’s Pallet Coffee Roasters. Our events almost always include dinner — ramen is an office favourite — , and we dedicate Friday mornings to Spare breakfast.

Free to be you

We celebrate everyone’s identity. Our goal is to create a space where everyone feels valued, respected and understood.

Why we love working at Spare

Samantha Vale, Software Engineer

I’ve always wanted to work towards building a product that makes people’s lives easier. Joining Spare means not only that, but also the opportunity to work on a product that can have a massive impact on a global issue — mobility.
The opportunity to dive into unknown territory, and to learn, and work with complex, exciting technology also excites me.


Tanya Castle, Regional Director of Growth

The ability for people to move safely, affordably, efficiently and comfortably is vital to their health, livelihood, and well-being. No individual should be unable to get around and moving people has to be done in the most sustainable way possible. Spare shares my philosophy and works with cities to serve everyone while considering the impact of transportation on the planet.

Lars Klundby, Operations Manager

At Spare, we’re leveraging powerful technology to solve real-world problems and making transportation more efficient and accessible for communities everywhere.


Erin Girard, People & Talent Lead

I’m a people-person and we’re growing a team that is providing accessible and sustainable public transportation to people across the world.
Who wouldn’t want to do that?
