Are masks disappearing from public transit? Here's what we’re finding.

Static Data Developer

Montreal, Canada

See All Positions

Data is our oil. You’re the genius pipeline builder. Millions of people rely on Transit’s data to get around their cities. They come to us to plan trips, check arrival times, negotiate transit schedules, dodge disruptions, and more. From buses and trains to bikeshares and scooters, you’ll be tasked with distilling our partners’ sometimes messy (and sometimes, downright illogical) data feeds into something pure and refreshing. Like a glass of raspberry lemonade on a perfect summer’s day.

You’ll build automated tools to help us fetch, clean, merge, compress, enhance, and, ultimately, perfect our data. People in 300+ cities will rely on your algorithms to get from A to B. When you screw up, someone might miss their bus or train. But when you succeed in taming that wildly buggy data feed into one that’s reliably right—when you see the bus turn the corner just as Transit says “ETA: 0 minutes” — it will be so glorious you’ll hear Beethoven blasting from the clouds.

👨‍💻 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.

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.
