Where is GoShare Hiring?

GoShare is available in major cities across the United States. If you don’t see your hometown below, we encourage you to still apply here. We are rapidly expanding and will likely be in your area soon. If you apply, you’ll be the first to get an email when we get to your area.

How quickly can I start working?

The application and onboarding process with GoShare on average takes one to two weeks. Some applicants complete the steps much faster and are accepting projects in less than a week. Others may take longer. How fast you are onboarded depends on how quickly you are able to provide GoShare with documentation that allows us to verify your history and enter you into our system. The application process involves the steps below:

  • Initial Application – This short application takes about five minutes to fill out.
  • Orientation Video and Test – Watch a brief video and take a quick test. This generally takes less than half an hour.
  • Vehicle Inspection – Provide our team with an inspection from your mechanic or a short self-inspection video so we can confirm your vehicle meets the minimum requirements for our insurance coverage. Videos may take our team up to three business days to review.
  • Background Check – Background checks typically take less than 48 hours.
  • Account Setup – The final step is to enter your deposit information and provide your W-9 so GoShare can provide your 1099 at the end of the year. Once this is set up, you are ready to start earning!
