The zip code you’re born in continues to be one of the strongest predictors of your economic mobility. As a team of city planners and urbanists, Remix aims to build a more equitable world by expanding access within it. We're developing tools that enable cities to better serve their communities by making smarter decisions around their transit and streets systems.

We're working with 275+ cities around the world including Oakland, Boston, Seattle, San Antonio, Miami, Calgary, and Melbourne.

The easiest way to understand what we're doing is this two minute demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-JpgoUKr5I

Why join us?
  • We're growing fast. We've recently opened an office in Amsterdam to begin EU expansion.

  • The local governments we work with love us - before Remix, it took Auckland at least a month to design new transit routes. Now it takes just 2 days.

  • We’re building a product that captures how people move through the physical world. At Remix, you’ll encounter technical problems at the crossroads of geospatial analysis and human behavior.

Technical Challenges

(1) Wrangling large amounts of transit, streets, and geo data then (2) using that to create and run city-wide public transit and streets systems.

Projects you might work on
  • The scheduling UI that represents complex transit systems schedules, and algorithms to generate such schedules

  • Visualizations and analysis tools 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)

  • Real time costing models and simulations

Working at Remix

Collaboration - Default to collaboration. We believe the best work happens when more than one person contributes. We do our work in the open and make it easy for others to provide feedback. Our natural inclination is to pull in team members from across the company and get it done together. The diversity of our backgrounds means we can see perspectives that a single person couldn’t.

Humility - Stay humble. We know what we’ve accomplished is just a fraction of what’s left to do. We’re not afraid to admit when we make mistakes because we know it’s the first step to learning from them. We’re willing to ask for help from others and realize there’s always someone we can learn from.

Empathy - Empathy for customers. We consider ourselves part of the larger community we serve. We always try to understand their perspective and what matters to them. If we're debating a decision, we choose the side that respects customers the most.

Feedback - Direct, honest feedback. We give honest feedback directly to each other. At first, this can be a little uncomfortable, but it's the fastest way to learn and grow. We try to give this feedback quickly and without judgment — it's done strictly in the service of self-improvement.

Generous Vacation

Unrestricted vacation policy - take time when you need it! A balanced, well-rested employee is a happy employee. We understand that everyone has a life outside of work, and we support self care.

Beautiful Office

We're located in the heart of SoMa. Our industrial style, exposed beam high ceiling creates a beautiful open, airy space with tons of natural lighting (we have sky lights!). For a change of scenery, there are lots of shared working spaces with comfy mid-century modern couches, and plenty of greenery. Also, everyone gets their own standing desk.
