What do we do?

Smarking is a team of data scientists, PhDs, engineers, and business professionals who set out on a journey to bring cutting edge solutions to the parking world. Frustrated by the stagnation of data analytics and yield management technologies in parking, the Smarking team is working to make the lives of parking professionals and parkers easier by bring innovation to this $50 billion global industry. Since our launch at MIT in 2014, Smarking has attracted world-class investors, happy customers, and grown into a team with experts from both parking and tech.

Why join us?

Smarking is a fast growing startup with customers who are already using our software to manage and make more informed decisions about their businesses. We are looking for both senior engineers and younger engineers with the drive and potential to grow their technical and leadership skills quickly.

Instead of filling a specific need, we hire talented engineers and work with them to identify their areas of expertise and map out areas of potential and growth. We believe having multi-disciplinary skill sets not only helps the team’s agility but is also crucial for today’s professional development.
