About Transit

The simple and beautiful way to get around. Live in 200 cities.

Job Description

There’s a reason you carry an iPhone in your pocket. It’s something about the iPhone look... the iPhone feel… the way you can spend thousands of hours contorting your face with the Lion Animoji, pretending you’re Mufasa. There’s also Transit: the fastest cheetah in the jungle.*

*our jungle being the wild iOS App Store.

As Transit’s newest iOS developer, you’ll be lionized as the reason millions of iPhone-wielders don’t need to own a car. You’ll help our team experiment, simplify, and perfect every aspect of the car-free commute: from our bodacious biking and subway maps, crowdsourced real-time displays, a wickedly simple step-by-step navigator, multimodal trip planner, plus secret upcoming features you’ll discover once you’re hired.

With your Objective-C superpowers, Transit will flow smoother than a Saskatchewan sunset. Here’s what you’ll be working on:

📝 Responsibilities

  • Collaborate with all-star teammates to dream up Transit’s next big feature.
  • Develop those features, refine existing ones, and maintain the iOS app with your tender love and care.
  • Refactor and refine Transit’s architecture to make maintenance simpler to carry out, and new features more-easily integrated.
  • Conspire with our design team priests to bring their vision (and yours) to pixel-plated perfection.

✅ Requirements

  • You're a self starter, adaptable and detail oriented.
  • Good knowledge of Objective-C or Swift, plus the iOS Frameworks. Xcode is an old friend; the square brackets on your keyboard are palpably faded.
  • Y’all can speak and write the French and English good.

💯 Would be nice if…

  • Experience with C++.
  • Familiarity with Git and GitHub.
  • You are the maestro behind at least one superb (and ideally, published) iOS app.
  • Passionate about cities, urbanism, public transit, design, technology, GIF battles on Slack.

Don’t feel like all the requirements apply to you but you still think you’d be a great fit for Transit? Don’t hesitate to apply!

💰 Compensation and benefits

  • Competitive salary and stock options
  • Comprehensive medical and dental coverage
  • 5 weeks vacation
  • Apple laptop and equipment
  • $1,500 annual mobility allowance. STM? BIXI? Uber? E-bike? Scooter? Going car-free is free at Transit.
  • A training and development budget
  • Flexible work hours
  • Spend your days surrounded by first-rate teammates and the best view of Montreal Zoom backgrounds in the world

👨‍💻 A note on diversity

Public transit is used by overwhelmingly more women and people of colour than other modes of transportation. We try to make sure the diversity of our users is reflected in the team that serves them. Because when we include people of all races, genders, sexual orientations, ages, and identities — we end up building a better app for everyone who uses Transit.

We encourage candidates of all ages, genders, origins and orientations to apply. If you’d like to specify which pronouns you’d like to be referred to, feel free to include that in your application email.

And if your lived experience has given you a unique perspective on all things transportation, mobility, accessibility, urbanism? Let us know, and we’ll make sure your application gets the attention it merits.
