Who you are

You love to learn and are happy to teach. You sweat the details while considering the big picture. You are really, really good at your craft. You enjoy collaborating with others, but you’re also confident in your ability to take control of a project from start to finish. You’re looking to be a valuable contributor on a team with big aspirations. You are excited to help set the course not just within your team but for the entire company.

Who we are

We are a tight-knit team of entrepreneurs, designers, engineers and marketers who love building useful products that are delightful and engaging. We know how to balance hard work and time spent with friends and family.

What we’re building

Did you know that 50M+ people in the US drive a personal car for work - and qualify for an average tax deduction of $6,500? But to get it, you have to keep a log of every single drive you take (and keep it for 5 years in case you’re audited!).

At MileIQ, we’re delivering mileage tracking for the modern workforce. We are the category creator and global leader in mileage tracking, with 1M+ active users, 80B+ miles logged, and $10B+ in value.

Why we’re doing it

We started this business a decade ago - then we sold it to Microsoft - and then we bought it back.

Why? Because we still believe in the vision of making mileage tracking a delightful and universal tool for every person who drives for work. Now we’re going all-in on building an even better product, brand, and user experience.

How we work

We work remotely with opportunities to collaborate in person as needed (keeping health and safety top of mind). We always lead with honesty, respect, and transparency. We believe the best decisions are made when multiple perspectives are considered. We act like a startup, but we are mindful that our service is relied upon everyday to capture tens of millions of valuable miles. We love to build, test and learn.

How we define success

Delighting our users with products that are trustworthy, engaging, easy to use, and valuable, while building a profitable business with colleagues we admire and respect. We focus on delivering measurable results and value.

Our principles

We believe in being user-centered, data-driven, optimistic, iterative, collaborative, inclusive and multi-disciplinary.

We are a great group of people as passionate as you are about making products people love, being fairly rewarded, and having fun doing so.

A little about our compensation

Commensurate with your skills and joining a proven team and established business. Competitive compensation and meaningful equity - the blend to be determined based on your risk appetite. We offer a robust health benefits package, as well as flexible PTO, a 401(k) with employer contributions, and productivity and work-life balance allowances.

Equal Opportunity

MileIQ Inc. provides equal employment opportunities (EEO) to all employees and applicants for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, orientation, national origin, age, disability or genetics. In compliance with US Federal law, all persons hired by MileIQ Inc. will be required to verify identity and eligibility to work in the United States and to complete the required employment eligibility verification document form upon hire.
