At HopSkipDrive, our goal is to create opportunity for all through mobility.

We’re a technology company that solves complex transportation challenges where there is a heightened need for safety, equity, and care. Through our marketplace, we connect kids, older adults, or anyone needing extra support to highly-vetted caregivers on wheels. Through our software and advisory services, we solve the biggest transportation challenges facing schools and school districts around the country.

Founded by three moms as a solution to their own transportation challenges, we’ve now completed more than 3.3 million rides and operate across over 13 states across the country. We continue to expand at a rapid pace, making the Inc. 5000 list four times, as well as the Deloitte 500 Fast-Growing Technology list. HopSkipDrive is a Series D company and has raised $100M in funding to date.

You're an excellent writer, passionate about the relationship between copy, content strategy and overall marketing strategy.

You have the ability to understand and empathize with target audiences so you can develop content that adds value to a professional audience. You have a strong sense of ownership and an entrepreneurial spirit, excited to grow and build within a rapidly growing technology company and you are comfortable with ambiguity. You’re a strong team player eager to execute and contribute your ideas to broader company strategy. You will be a key contributor to Communications and Marketing Strategy and an integral player on the Communications and Marketing team.

You are excited to jump in and help your teammates, and you’re always thinking of ways to constructively challenge the status quo and improve the business. You are an A+ player who is inspired by the mission we are pursuing and by the opportunity to define a new category in an incredibly fast-moving market. You are excited to bring your best everyday, to learn from those around you and to push hard while contributing to our powerful vision of creating opportunity through mobility.
