Come help us build the next generation of mobility solutions for the transit industry!
GMV Syncromatics is a leading provider of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) serving transit agencies, universities and private operators across the country. We collect GPS and other sensor data from buses, shuttles, trolleys and other moving vehicles and then transport it via cellular networks to our back-end systems for real-time aggregation, analytics, alerting, and reporting. All of this information is used by dispatchers, transit planners and the riding public to make transit systems more accessible to riders and run more efficiently for operators.
Location: remote office in Salt Lake, UT
Salt Lake has a thriving tech scene in addition to an abundance of outdoor activities. We are looking to invest in an initial engineer who loves the area with the ultimate goal of adding additional engineers moving forward.
GMV Syncromatics is headquartered downtown in sunny Los Angeles, California. We're in the PacMutual building, located adjacent to Pershing Square and easily accessible via the 7th St/Metro Center and Pershing Square Metro stations. Many of our employees take advantage of public transportation (we pay for it!). The Pershing Square/Bunker Hill area is a thriving, revitalized area of Los Angeles with limitless restaurants, coffee shops, gyms, shopping and other amenities.
If you are not in Los Angeles, we still want you to work with us! We stay in sync with each other through a typical set of tools (Slack, GoToMeeting, the Atlassian suite [Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket], GitHub) and many of us in Los Angeles frequently work from places other than the DTLA office.
We're looking for a full-stack engineer who is eager to work with us on building really great software that improves lives in the towns and cities where people use it. Our software includes web apps and services, native mobile apps, embedded programs, Internet of Things (IoT) hardware and software, network and infrastructure programming, actor model and messaging systems, and relational databases. We don't expect incoming engineers to have experience with every one of these areas, but we are looking for those who are looking to learn new things and build their practical experience with a wide array of technology.
