We are adding seasoned experts from the worlds of hardware, mobility, and safety.

Why join us?
Our team has helped re-imagine how a new generation of people commute. First with Boosted (YC S12) and now with Skip (YC W18) a shared network of personal electric scooters.
We're a group of hardware and software hackers from places like Stanford, MIT, University of California, Apple, Nest and Eero.
We've raised over $30MM from top tier investors including Menlo Ventures, Accel, Y Combinator, Initialized Capital, A Capital and SVAngel.
Engineering at Skip
Building out the backend infrastructure for a ten thousand scooter fleet across multiple time and space zones.
Build a data pipeline that looks at where riders are opening our apps, then turn it into a heat map for the Skip Street Team, our network of independent contractors, to inform them where to best place scooters to meet demand throughout the day. Factor in weather, events and competitive supply.
Working at Skip
We're an engineering-first company. We value intellectual honesty, missionaries over mercenaries, and put more emphasis on raw IQ than specific skillset or experience.
