In just two years, our rapidly-growing platform has expanded to 70 cities globally, working with the world's largest mobility companies.

About you:

Bonus if you have prior experience/ domain expertise in transportation or urban systems, or other domain which deals with large spatial datasets.  A big plus if you have a background in GIS and mapbox-gl for mapping.

To apply:

Send us your resume or LinkedIn profile and a few words on why you're the right person for this role + why you'd like to work on helping us solve big transportation problems.
