Why are we hiring?

You may have noticed recently that Sonder has been advertising a large number of role opportunities - this is all due to our significant growth which has resulted in us being able to support more people in more communities. Whilst our growth has led to us now employing over 300 people, we’ve made sure to retain our friendly culture and practical approach.

  • Flexible working arrangements
