About us: SharedStreets is a growing non-profit that creates open source software, data standards, data infrastructure, and other tools for public/private collaboration to manage the future of our transport system. We work with cities across North America and Europe on needs related to micromobility, TNCs, curb management, map conflation, and other emerging transportation and technology topics.
About the position: SharedStreets is seeking a full-time software engineer to join our organization. The engineer will work with our team to create open source tools that reinvent how cities collect and share data about streets, building on the SharedStreets Referencing System. This position will initially focus on growing our curb management work, with the opportunity and encouragement to lead other areas of work at SharedStreets.
At the outset, this engineer will focus on creating tools to help cities collect and process curb inventory data. Our curb work to-date has involved building a data standard, experimenting with data collection tools and workflows, and creating data feeds and viewers. We’ve modified a measuring wheel to act as a specialized data collection device, and this engineer will build out the data collection app, associated API, and user-friendly editing and processing tools. These tools will be used by city government staff to collect data that helps them reimagine the future of important public space.
The position is remote with the opportunity to work with existing team members in the San Francisco Bay Area; Bend, Oregon; and Raleigh, North Carolina. Competitive compensation and excellent benefits are offered. Equity is in the form of improved quality of life in a community near you.
You’d be a good fit if:
You have experience working with messy geospatial data and creating complex web applications
You like to iterate quickly, generating and testing ideas to see what works best
You’re interested in cities and transportation, and want to transform the way that the public sector engages with technology
You have data visualization skills and opinions
You have experience using (or building) field data collection tools
Candidates with non-traditional software engineering backgrounds are encouraged to apply. We especially encourage applications from women, people of color, and others who are underrepresented in the tech community.
