About Navdy
Navdy created the world’s first Augmented Driving© device for your car that lets you Look Forward© while Staying Connected©. Our Mission is to reinvent the driving experience and to make driving something you Look Forward to again. In 2013, we set out to fundamentally change the way you use technology in the car and to create the type of product that makes you immediately wonder how you ever lived without it. Navdy is more than a new display, more than a new UI, and more than a new platform for Apps—it’s an experience and one we hope you enjoy every time you get behind the wheel.

We’re engineers. Scientists. Designers. Perfectionists. Misfits. Rebels. Inventors. We’re craftsmen at heart, obsessed with dissecting every detail. Good enough doesn’t exist in our vocabulary. We’re driven to achieve perfection at every touchpoint, from the hardware we build to the user experience we’re reimagining. And we’re just crazy enough to believe our work can steer the future of driving in a new direction.

Working at Navdy means working with a team on an ambitious project, getting inspired in a state of-the-art workspace, and feeling the satisfaction of building a product that’s fixing a problem that affects all of us everyday.

Navdy’s mission is to make driving something you Look Forward to again with a transparent image appearing over the road ahead that displays all the information you need from your phone and your car.

We have all the perks you would expect from a great start up: an amazing office space, a smart multidisciplinary team, an open workplace, plenty of food in the kitchen, and venture money in the bank.
