Reconditioning Associate

About Shift
We believe car buying should be fun, fair, and accessible to everyone. We’ve set out to transform an industry, using technology to bring transparency and convenience to the car buying process. 

And we aren’t stopping there. We aim to bring that same transparency and convenience to car ownership too, with payments, maintenance, and insurance in one easy app. At Shift, we’re building the tools that empower people to buy, own, and sell the cars that make life go.

Reconditioning Associates are the heart of our vehicle prep team and are tasked with a variety of mission critical responsibilities, including:

Transporting vehicles to and from various warehouse locations to keep production on schedule and assisting with inventory management
Detailing our vehicles to perfection inside and out, including washing, waxing & upholstery
Working closely with operations personnel to ensure test drives and delivers go smoothly
Flexibility to take on other tasks as needed, such as photographing vehicles

Requirements

  • Attention to detail.
  • Ability to work with others on a team or individually.
  • Responsible, careful and confident drivers (you will be moving expensive cars).
  • Ability to drive manual (stick shift)
  • Reliable, timely and good communicator.
  • Valid driver's license and a clean driving record.
  • Willing to work weekends.
  • Bonus Points:
  • You’ve worked for a startup company in any capacity.
  • Previous car detailing experience (6 months or more) is a plus, but not required.

Pursuant to the San Francisco Fair Chance Ordinance, we will consider for employment qualified applicants with arrest and conviction records

On diversity
Our company depends on balance and equality — between buyers and sellers, among employees, and in our relationships with customers.

Our mission to evolve car ownership and transform an industry is a challenging one. It can only be achieved by a team of diverse problem-solvers — engineers, designers, business people — from the same broad demographics as our customers.

Why join now?
We’ve built a small but highly talented team backed by $120 million in funding from investors like DFJ, Goldman Sachs, and BMW iVentures. We’ve got product-market fit, but there’s still a ton of room to innovate and make your mark on the product and on the company. 

Shift is the Bay Area’s #1 seller of used cars with $100 million in cars sold per year. We’re serving most of California and are gearing up to scale to new markets. With a solid business model and no clear winner in our space yet, this is a hugely exciting time to join the team.
