Fair is an automotive FinTech company that's revolutionizing car buying by offering unprecedented freedom, flexibility and an end-to-end mobile experience.

We believe fairness matters. That's why we've created a game-changing new app that lets you shop, get approved and pay for a car all on your phone with just a driver's license and bank account. Get in-app approval for a monthly payment amount that works for you, then head to the dealership and check-out in minutes. You can drive your car for as long as you want, and return it any time you're ready. That's the Fair way to drive!

At Fair, we're making the world a more fair place, one happy driver at a time -- and it all starts with building a team of passionate and curious-minded people to become "ambassadors of Fair" from our sunny Santa Monica office.

At Fair, “Fairness matters” is our motto. It’s what brings us together each day, and what drives everything we do here.
