Montreal, Canada (open to remote candidates)

All that gas. All those parking spots. All those under-used, single-occupant metal cages cars, cluttering up our cities. T’was the century of car-tocracy… until that century met you, and your beautiful blue suede bicycle shoes, and got bicycle-kicked into the dustbins of history.

As the newest member of our partnerships team, you’ll be an urbanist liberator: helping cities elevate better forms of transportation like bikes, buses, trains, and microtransit. You’ll be working closely with transit agencies, helping them modernize the rider experience with our five-star app. We make it easier than ever for riders to get from a-to-b without their own car.

Behind the scenes, our team builds tools that improve agencies’ real-time data, a trip planner that connects public transit to other sustainable modes (like bikeshare), disruption alert systems, and more. It’s powerful stuff — and agencies love us for it. We also help agencies make sense of how their riders are travelling, so they can provide better service, especially in these hmm-let’s-just-say unusual times.

A single day will have you travelling from city to city, building relationships from the cozy seat of your broomstick on Zoom. From Boston to Montreal to Baltimore to Victoria to Los Angeles, our partnerships team has helped make Transit the official transit app™ of dozens of cities. With your help, that list will get a good deal longer!

Great public transportation is the secret to great cities. But the secret to great public transportation is great citizens, working together. That’s why we’re working so hard at Transit to build a community of partners, private and public, in order to unlock better mobility outcomes for millions of people, in cities across North America. After all: the war on cars can’t be fought alone. It requires all hands on deck. If that sounds like a worthy mission (and we sound like the beneficent pirate ship you’d feel inspired to sail on) we implore you to apply! Here’s what we’ll need on your end…

👨‍💻 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.
