See All Positions

There’s a reason you carry an iPhone in your pocket. It’s something about the iPhone look... the iPhone feel… the way you can spend thousands of hours contorting your face with the Lion Animoji, pretending you’re Mufasa. There’s also Transit: the fastest cheetah in the jungle.*

*our jungle being the wild App Store.

As Transit’s newest iOS developer, you’ll be lionized as the reason millions of iPhone-wielders don’t need to own a car. You’ll help our team experiment, simplify, and perfect every aspect of the car-free commute: from our bodacious biking and subway maps, crowdsourced real-time displays, a wickedly simple step-by-step navigator, multimodal trip planner, plus secret upcoming features you’ll discover once you’re hired.

Transit is written in Objective-C and Swift and the business logic is implemented in a C++ shared library. The iOS and Android teams work in tandem on that part of the codebase. This allows us to reduce code duplication while still maintaining our high-quality standards by using UIKit on iOS to build a native silky smooth UI.

👨‍💻 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.
