About CharterUP

If you’ve been searching for a career with a company that values creativity, innovation, and teamwork, consider this your ticket to ride. 

CharterUP is on a mission to shake up the fragmented $30 billion group ground transportation industry - with over 10,000 independent charter bus, minibus, and van operators across America. CharterUP is the first online marketplace that connects customers to a network of bus operators from coast to coast, currently holding over 600 operators on the network. Our revolutionary platform makes it possible to book a bus in just 60 seconds – eliminating the stress and hassle of coordinating group transportation for anyone from wedding parties to Fortune 500 companies. We’re introducing transparency, accountability, and accessibility to an industry as archaic as phone books. By delivering real-time availability and pricing, customers can use the CharterUP marketplace to easily compare quotes, vehicles, safety records, and reviews. 

We're seeking team members who are revved up and ready to use technology to make a positive impact. As part of the CharterUP team, you'll work alongside some of the brightest minds in the technology and transportation industries. You'll help drive the future of group travel and help raise the bar for service standards in the industry, so customers can always ride with confidence.

But we're not just about getting from point A to point B – CharterUP is also committed to sustainability. By promoting group travel, we can significantly reduce carbon emissions and help steer our planet toward a greener future. In 2022 alone, we eliminated over 1 billion miles worth of carbon emissions with 25 million miles driven.

We’re a remote-first workplace, but we encourage collaboration and connection with hubs in Atlanta, GA and Austin, TX. CharterUP is looking for passionate and driven individuals to join our team and help steer us toward a better future for group transportation. On the heels of a $60 million Series A funding round, we’re ready to kick our growth into overdrive – and we want you to be part of the ride.
