South Florida startup to add nearly 40 jobs by year-end


    A gas-on-demand startup based in Miami is looking to fill nearly 40 jobs as it expands to Broward and Palm Beach counties.

    Neighborhood Fuel expects to have 60 employees by the end of 2018. The company, which currently has 22 workers, has plans to bring on drivers, marketing professionals, regional managers, brand ambassadors and software engineers.

    “We believe this is a business that can bring value to people across America, and the goal is to grow it on solid ground and make sure our services are at the level they should be,” said Jorge Camaraza, who launched the company in 2014. It has since attracted $3.2 million in funding.
