Backend Engineer

Come help us build a real-life SimCity. We’re looking for a backend generalist engineer to write robust code that drives the world’s first transit planning platform. We use mostly Ruby, Python, and Javascript, and use Postgres/PostGIS. We have many interesting problems, from efficiently querying geospatial databases to pulling meaning out of disparate transit data sources. 

You’ll be responsible for:

  • Developing and improving our systems to digest and make sense of transit data.
  • Working with a stellar team of six other engineers to build new features and products that help cities make better decisions.

You’re a good fit if:

  • You’ve spent a couple of years working on web applications used by real people.
  • You have a knack for using data and asking the right question when working with complex problem domains.
  • You’re resourceful — as a small company, you’ll be able to get a lot done here.
  • You’re strong at either working with databases, or setting up infrastructure.

To apply, send your resume (or LinkedIn profile) and a few words on why you're the right person + what excites you about transit.

We are committed to a workplace that reflects the community we serve. We especially encourage women, people of color, and others who are underrepresented in the tech industry to apply.

Remix is an interactive planning tool that streamlines and informs how public transit routes are designed. Transportation agencies and city governments using Remix can map out new transit scenarios and visualize implications of those scenarios—in terms of cost, for instance, or the demographics of the people who would be affected.
