About Us

Car & Away is a revolutionary new start-up which, at its heart, enables private car owners to rent their cars directly to others when they are not using them. Think Airbnb for cars.

Our brand purpose is to become the smartest peer-to-peer car sharing community globally.

We believe the world needs a smarter way to own and use cars. Car ownership costs are high, yet these cars are only used for 4% of their lifetime. There are 31m in the UK and 1bn worldwide highlighting a chronic inefficiency of private car ownership and a huge opportunity around unlocking the idle capacity in these cars. We aim to reduce the number of cars on the road by 20%.

The Car & Away community was born at UK airports where we offer car owners a new choice to park and earn by renting their cars out. Using these cars we are disrupting the traditional car rental business by giving renters the exact car they choose and no queues, so they can drive away in just 5 minutes.

Car owners will be supported from their homes to become the forefront of a larger community that will ultimately revolutionise car ownership across the country.

This is a rare opportunity to join an exciting business that will transform the way in which we own and use cars.

The Role

As a QA Engineer you’ll be working alongside our UK-based super-star development team to help deliver a brand new world-class, mobile-centric, car sharing platform.

  • You’ll develop end-to-end testing strategies and scenarios for both web and app-based applications.
  • You’ll utilise your experience to introduce automated testing, where possible.

  • Inquisitive and passionate about building world-class products.
  • Strong analytical approach to problem solving, troubleshooting and fault finding.
  • Ability to author and execute testing with minimal guidance.
  • Experience in Agile, DevOps & QA Automation methodologies such as Scrum, Test Driven Development (TDD), Behaviour Driven Development (BDD), Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD).
  • Extensive knowledge of API testing, e.g. with Postman.
