- Define and refine our strategy: at the micro-level (individual mobility partners) and the macro-level (improving how we tackle entire verticals—like rideshare, e-scooters, docked bikeshare, etc.)
- Articulate that strategy within Transit: whether it’s the developers helping you add new partners to Transit, or the copywriters announcing your deals.
- Improve our stable of partners: you’ll be sourcing, negotiating, and securing new deals. This will primarily involve shared mobility partners, but sometimes be connected to broader transit agency partnerships, too.
- Manage partners: keeping everyone happy, and communicating expectations with verve and moxie.
- Manage teams: as Transit scales, your team and responsibilities will too. This might not be a Day Zero job, but a probable evolution of your role.
- Take the mic: you’ll be Transit’s voice at conferences and industry events.
- Plan for the future: think about big-picture partnership opportunities in cities where Transit’s not yet available, and figure out if those partnerships could springboard Transit’s launch in that city.
- 3+ years working in a partnerships or business development role. For more senior roles, we’re looking for at least 6 years of experience. In both cases, some or all of those years should be at a mobility/transportation company.
- Tu peux reader this sentence: immaculate command of English is mandatory, French skills are helpful but not required.
- Tu peux repeater this sentence: you are an excellent communicator for all the public and not-so-public speaking aspects of the job.
- Strongly analytical: You’ll have to understand partner needs, communicate Transit’s value, and persevere and adapt in the face of complex negotiations or initial resistance.
- Tech-savvy: you don’t need to code, but you must be able to fluently explain all of Transit’s bells and whistles.
- Passion for urbanism: you find cycling glamorous, you can navigate your city’s public transit system without a map, and you believe free parking should only ever exist on a Monopoly board.
- Montrealer: You live in Montreal, or are willing to relocate to our gorgeous metropolis
- Connected: You should have a strong network of existing government, transportation and advocacy contacts and relationships.
Would be nice
- Polygot! The more languages you can speak, write and understand, the better. French in particular is valuable.
- Startup experience: we’re scaling, which means you’ll have to work well under uncertainty, imperfect information, and goal posts that might occasionally shift.
- Consulting or finance background.
Don’t feel like all the requirements apply to you but you still think you’d be a great fit for Transit? Don’t hesitate to apply!
