About Spothero

By designing better ways to find, reserve and pay for parking, we make life easier, our cities more accessible, and our world more connected.

Our Core Values

Give Drivers the Right of Way

We take the Hero in our name seriously, and we go the extra mile to make sure our drivers have an experience we're proud of.

Drive Growth

We venture outside our comfort zones to accelerate company and individual growth. With a desire to learn and willingness to teach, reflection on the losses as well as the wins, and sharing and seeking of candid feedback, we drive ourselves and the company forward.

Fuel Relationships

We believe strong relationships are the core of high-functioning teams. We build these relationships by intentionally getting to know one another, taking accountability for our work, showing vulnerability, and remembering that trust is a two-way street.

Don't Get Stuck in Traffic

We believe in empowering people to use their unique voices to solve problems and find different routes to success. With the humility to ask for help, the flexibility to adapt, and the resilience to chart the uncharted, there are no limits to what can be achieved.

Remember to Signal

We all strive to do our part in communicating openly and honestly with each other in moments big and small. This means sharing ideas, keeping stakeholders informed, explaining the “why” behind decisions, and doing so with care.

Respect Fellow Drivers

We believe in respecting our fellow teammates and creating a safe space for people to get from here to there. This means listening, assuming positive intent, and seeking to understand different perspectives.

Enjoy the Ride

Laugh, feel the wind in your hair, and remember not to take yourself too seriously.
