Data Visualization Engineer

Our Mission

Move people.

Our Values

We are independent. Creative. Gutsy. We aren’t afraid to dream big. We are accountable. To our customers. To our cities. To each other. We are humble. Human. Lighthearted. We take our work seriously, but not ourselves.

Mobility is the lifeblood of urban environments and cities need affordable, emissions-free transportation options that are free of delays. We believe that shared electric mopeds will become an integral part of transit networks, filling gaps not served by bike share, car share, scooter share, or public transit.

About the role

We’re looking for the special combination of someone who is half Data Scientist, half Engineer, and half Artist to help us translate a variety of data, from the simple metrics to complex, multi-faceted, real-time data streams, into elegant, interactive, and insightful visualizations. This position will be a vital resource to help us in understanding and optimizing our business, system operations, and user dynamics. You will report to the Director of Data Science and Analytics.
