An Insider's view of HopSkipDrive

What’s the vibe like in the office?

HopSkipDrive has the best office vibe I’ve experienced, and that’s all thanks to my coworkers. My favorite moments of the day are the small, unexpected conversations I get to have– in the kitchen grabbing coffee, in the elevator, or passing in the hall. I look forward to coming into work because of them. Well, them and our many good office dogs

Emily Durrett

Office Administrator

What are some things you learned at the company?

I learned to identify my strengths and interests in a work environment. Rather than chasing promotions, I learned to look for the work I I’d like to do. Startups make this easier because there are so many opportunities to move, change, and grow.

Mira Hayashi

CX Training Manager

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

We make it a priority at HopSkipDrive to foster a trusting and collaborative culture which improves and enhances our ideas and strategies on a daily basis. This has allowed us to successfully bring to market a service that challenges the status quo as it relates to connecting access to transportation with educational outcomes.

Toby McGraw

SVP of Sales

How does the company support your career growth?

I look forward to going in to work, a work environment that pushes me to improve, that gives me the support and structure to grow into a better thinker, braver woman, all the while still letting me be the quirky clown that I am.
