What is Juno?
Juno is a fresh approach to ride-sharing. We are a ground-breaking start-up founded by Israelis, gearing up for our big time launch in NYC. But this isn’t our first time around the block… and we have the street cred to back it up! You may have heard of our founders, the creators of Viber.
The name Juno was inspired by the ancient Roman goddess of protection, and that is exactly what we are striving to do: revolutionize the ride-sharing industry by protecting our drivers.
Everything we do is guided by our core values (Kindness, Fairness, Respect & Transparency), and we believe we are truly setting a new standard for how business can and should be done.
We are offering to make our drivers our partners, and show them that things can be better than the status quo, because we believe that happy drivers means a better experience for the riders… nobody has to lose. Wouldn’t that be a nice world to live in? Come help us make it happen!
We believe if we are good people and make decisions from our heart, driven by the desire to make human to human connections, we can pave the way for socially responsible and heart-driven business.
Sounds too good to be true? – yeah, we thought so too.
Join us in the revolution…
- So listen – We’re looking for people that embody our values and truly enjoy making others happy, as well as a confidence in themselves to take the reins and run with it. It’s an energetic and fast-paced environment over here… and we want to see you keep up and succeed – professionally and personally!
- What we’re offering is the support and room to grow with us, a team of amazing individuals to work with and back you up, a fantastic view and all the things you need to bring your best self to the job.

- Building an elite customer service team of awesome olim chadashim and internationals to handle calls from taxi drivers in New York. Providing great pay and perks, and an amazing work atmosphere.
- “Looking for people that embody our values and truly enjoy making others happy”.

It’s been a year since we launched in New York, and Juno is making a dent in the ridesharing universe – going from 0 to 8% market share. Following a recent acquisition by Gett, we now have more resources to take over the industry, and come up with innovative new solutions.
