What do we do?

Today, cities use pen & 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.

We're working with 60+ cities including Oakland, Baltimore, Seattle, San Antonio, Miami, Calgary, and Melbourne. All in less than a year.

The easiest way to understand what we're doing is this two minute demo:

Technical challenges

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

Why join us?

1) We're building something that matters -- helping cities be smarter in the urban planning. They do this all on paper, which is as crazy as it sounds. This stuff effects millions of people.

2) We've got traction in a place traction is hard to get -- government. 60+ cities are actively using Remix -- Vancouver, Oakland, Raleigh, lots more.

3) We care deeply about design (founded by two designers). That caring is reflected in our app. Watch this demo: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o-JpgoUKr5I
