Meet the DriveTime Crew!
We’re a team of innovators and engineers, movers and shakers, morning people and night owls, dreamers and believers, techies and talkers. But most of all we are a family. At DriveTime we’re fueled by the success of our employees as much as we are by the loyalty of our customers.
The environment and the people. The open desk environment speaks volumes to the type of environment DriveTime creates. Open communication in any direction is encouraged and embraced. I think that plays a factor in the type of people that work here as well, very informal, approachable, and collectively try to make this a great place to work.
I am very active. I like to play a lot of team sports and I do so with a lot of the people I work with here. I play basketball, football, softball, kickball and any other activity I can take part in. I also like to travel when I get the chance. Whether it’s a wedding or a concert that gets me out of the state, I like to take those opportunities to explore new areas.
