Interaction Designer

Company: Miles
Location: Redwood City
Posted on: May 6, 2022

Job Description:

Miles is a universal rewards app empowering anyone to earn miles automatically for all forms of travel and commute. You can then redeem your miles from amazing brands such as HP, Garmin, Pandora, Chewy, Home Chef, Buffalo Wild Wings, Wayfair, Sam's Club, and many more.

Similar to a frequent flyer program, but for all forms of transportation, Miles delivers value for every mile traveled, across every mode of travel, anywhere in the world. Whether by car (as a driver, passenger, or rideshare), plane, train, subway, bus, boat, bicycle, or on foot, the Miles app effortlessly awards users' travel - regardless of where their journey takes them. Miles can be saved or redeemed at any time - with the value increasing every month as more merchants accept them as a form of payment.

Miles is a Silicon Valley-based startup with backing from prominent VCs (Porsche, Scrum, Panasonic, and Urban.us). Join the Miles family and be part of this revolutionary program!
