Partner Communications

Montreal, Canada

See All Positions

Transit agencies are more than just buses and trains. They’re remarkable organizations, ferrying millions of passengers each day, usually to little fanfare. But without them, we’d need millions more cars, thousands more bridges and tunnels, and billions more barrels of oil. Transit agencies not only keep us from traffic apocalypse — they’re what keep our cities green, vibrant, nimble. That’s why this position is so important: you can be the “Robin” to the dozens of transit agency “Batmans” that use Transit to communicate with their riders.

Your mission — if you choose to accept it — is to find harmony between the communication needs of Transit’s many partners (95% transit agencies, but also the occasional 🚲/🛴/🚖 operator) and Transit itself. Your work will touch millions of grateful riders, helping them discover our app and empowering them with a more reliable & delightful experience, whenever they go somewhere without a car.

The copy you write will sing in the same key as Transit’s brand voice, appearing on our own materials (like in-app banners, push notifications, our website, etc.) and on our partners’ materials as well, ones you’ll help coordinate (think: city-wide bus wraps, bikeshare station signage, transit agency social media). You should feel comfortable hopscotching from a Montréal bikeshare project, to a small Ohio agency project, to working with LA Metro — sometimes all in the span of a single week. You’ll help create a streamlined process for it all, so you don’t have to reinvent the bus wheel every time we work with someone new.

It’s the perfect position for someone who’s witty, organized, a sharp writer, and sustainability-minded with a passion for public transit. Ready to apply? Here’s what we’ll need on your side!

👨‍💻 A note on diversity

Public transit is used by overwhelmingly more women and people of colour than other modes of transportation. We try to make sure the diversity of our users is reflected in the team that serves them. Because when we include people of all races, genders, sexual orientations, ages, and identities — we end up building a better app for everyone who uses Transit.

We encourage candidates of all ages, genders, origins and orientations to apply. If you’d like to specify which pronouns you’d like to be referred to, feel free to include that in your application email.

And if your lived experience has given you a unique perspective on all things transportation, mobility, accessibility, urbanism? Let us know, and we’ll make sure your application gets the attention it merits.

📬 How to apply

Shoot an email to [email protected] explaining why you want to work for Transit, and include links to any online presence you’re particularly proud of (blog, Twitter, etc.). Be sure to include a writing sample (more than a couple paragraphs, but not a novella) that spotlights your style. Feel free to include any other information you find relevant. We look forward to hearing from you!

PS: When you apply, let us know how you heard about the position! Whispers, grapevines, middle-of-the-night Google searches? We’re dying to know.
