Engineering Manager

San Francisco or Remote (United States) /
Engineering /

AirGarage is working to repurpose the 30% of real estate in the average American city dedicated to parking. Today, land is managed in an old-school, offline way. Parking lots and garages are outdated, using machines and attendants which means they sit underutilized and cannot adapt to serve our cities' changing needs.

We are building a future where real estate is digitized and can be transitioned from one use to another seamlessly on-demand, moving every piece of urban real estate toward its highest and best use.

The first step in achieving that future vision is making these physical spaces legible to our digital system. That's what we're focused on today.  

As a full-stack parking operator, we automate the operation of parking lots and parking garages. We handle everything from advertising to collecting payments from drivers and enforcing against illegal parking. We already operate 150+ parking lots and parking garages across 30 US states and we are growing quickly. 

We're looking for ambitious, output oriented team members that want to help us scale to thousands of locations and change the way urban real estate is managed to build better cities and aren't afraid to roll up their sleeves and .

We are backed by top tier investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Floodgate, Founders Fund, and angel investors who have founded or worked at companies like Uber, Opendoor, Flexport, and more.
