Join us in building a real-life SimCity.
Today, cities use pen and paper to make planning decisions that affect millions of people's lives. We think there's a better way. We've built a web-based platform that helps city planners make much smarter decisions.
Grown out of a side project at Code for America, we're now working with 150+ cities including Atlanta, Sydney, Boston, Miami, San Francisco, Reykjavik, and Seattle. All in just two years. Learn more about our product at http://remix.com.
We’re looking for engineers across our stack to write robust code that drives the world’s first transit planning platform. We use:
- Mapping: OpenStreetMap, Mapbox, Mapzen, Leaflet, TWKB, GTFS, PostGIS, ogr2ogr
- Back-end: Ruby, Rails, Python, Flask, PuLP, COIN-OR Branch and Cut solver (CBC), C++ (using Cython), Sidekiq, PostgreSQL, Redis
- Front-end: React, Webpack (with Hot Module Replacement), ES6/Babel, LESS, CSS Modules, Yarn
- Testing: CircleCI, RSpec, Approvals, WebMock, puffing-billy, Capybara, Jasmine, Happo, Browserstack, Overcommit, Codecov (>75% coverage front+back-end)
You’ll work on (for example):
- The scheduling algorithm that turns a Remix map into work sheets for bus drivers
- Visualisations for use in public meetings, such as the “Jane” (Jacobs) isochrones tool (https://blog.remix.com/remixs-isochrone-visualizes-travel-ti...)
- Our geo-database of open data (transit and census) and privacy-sensitive data
- Live-updating costing models and simulations
- Our “Title VI” tool, which helps transit agencies comply with the Civil Rights Act of 1964
