Software Engineer Co-op - Web Development
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 inspired by 5 years of research at world leading universities, including MIT and TU Delft. We are a small, but quickly growing team of ride-sharing veterans, 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! We recently raised $5m which you can read about here.
We are looking for a software engineering co-op to join our web development based dashboard team, to build new features and maintain our transit dashboard. Our dashboard is used by the employees of transit agencies to view the performance of their deployments, manage their drivers and vehicles, and edit details of their performance such as service times and service areas. Some projects we’ve worked on recently include creating a call center to support riders who don’t have smartphones, creating an interface to add areas to indicate to riders where fixed route connections exist, and redesigning our performance metric page to look very modern.
You will have the opportunity to work on large scale projects that will be utilized by transit agency employees everyday. You will have many senior engineers to learn from and collaborate directly with to grow as an engineer yourself.
We encourage you to drop us a line even if you don’t feel fully qualified. We have a lot of different areas of responsibility and we are always happy to brainstorm with you about what would be the best fit.
This co-op will start in the summer and end at the end of December, 2022. We can be flexible with start and end dates, some of our past co-ops have worked from May to December and some from July to December.
This is an in person co-op, our office is located at 48 Grove St, Somerville, Massachusetts. It is steps away from Davis station on the Red Line.
We also have two other co-op openings for our two other engineering teams, our backend team and our mobile app team. We encourage you to apply to as many of these positions as you are interested in.
