Who we are
The Routing Company is enabling a world where economic opportunity isn't limited by transportation. Mass transit is broken and cities, now more than ever, need accessible, and flexible transportation options. The Routing Company offers a complete and integrated experience for transit operators to launch on-demand transportation services -- including a rider app, driver app, and visualization platform that are all configurable within a day. Our technology is the result of 5 years of research at MIT and TU Delft.
We are a small, but quickly growing team of software engineers, researchers, public transportation domain experts, product managers, designers, and more. We value kindness and transparency in our work environment and we create equal opportunities for everyone to grow, make an impact, while also not forgetting to have fun!

The opportunity
Our mobile applications are the rebar holding together a city's transportation foundations. Our Pingo Rider and Pingo Driver apps allow people to plan, purchase, and execute their movement, from the smallest trip around the block to the longest journey across the city--from a trip to the doctor's office or a ride to a job interview. We are looking for a mobile software engineer who is excited to contribute to our rider and driver mobile applications and therefore help improve the very foundations of our cities. To do so, you will be an integral part of a small and highly motivated team of self-starters, working closely with the CTO developing world-leading technology for the global mobility-on-demand industry. As an early employee, you'll also be able to impact the product and the company culture. You will work in an exciting, fast-paced startup environment with plenty of opportunities to learn and make an impact!

    • Design and implement key parts of the driver and rider mobile applications
    • Collaborate with backend engineers to define request flows and communication interfaces
    • Work with designers to build for the best user experience

    • Ensure high production reliability of our applications by proper tests, logging, and alerting

Who you are

    • Self-motivated and willing to learn new things and take on new challenges
    • Entrepreneurial and eager to thrive in a startup environment
    • Strong communicator
    • A kind person, highly ethical and accepting of others
    • Passionate about improving public transportation globally
