- Design new features, sometimes from a blank slate, sometimes to order — depending on which internal teams/external stakeholders (i.e. transit agencies) are involved
- Master the app until it feels as natural as a bicycle: be familiar with Transit’s various screens and UI elements, and understand the reasoning behind design decisions
- Improve and maintain our internal design system, so it’s ever-easier for Transit’s designers to build and ship new features
- Measure the success of your designs using analytics tools, and work with developers to keep an eye on performance. “The numbers don’t lie” — Shakira
- Be open to (but also opinionated about) features suggested by Transit users
- Strong UX and UI skills. Separating the two would be a sin. 😱
- Experience designing at least one mobile app (experience with web apps would be nice)
- Maniacal obsession for details like font sizes, margins, colours and their consistency across screens.
- Be sharp, be smart, be creative. Here, there’s no such thing as "I tried everything."
- Be humble, listen to feedback, be open to criticism. Blame design, not the user!
- Be passionate about cities, urbanism, public transit, design, technology, and/or all of the above.
- Know who you’re designing for: while we expect you to use Transit, naturally, you won’t always use all of its features (even our most popular ones). Be conscious of these biases and know when to carry out user research.
- Speak and write the French and English good.
- Be based in Montreal or be willing to relocate to Montreal in a post-rona world (can you even imagine…)
💯 Would be nice if…
- You had experience with prototyping and user testing.

👨💻 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.
