Company Description
We are a mission-driven startup working to help cities move more efficiently. Be it from a desire to improve public transit, urban mobility, sustainability, or simply from a desire to work on hard problems that impact the real world–we care deeply about our work. Our software generates real-time predictions for transit riders, and our feeds are consumed by 3rd party applications like Google Maps, Transit App, physical signs, and more. We've also built a data analytics platform with intuitive visualizations that help drive smarter decisions for more than 5,500 transit professionals around the globe. Your work will make a difference for transit riders in more than 90 cities and 6 countries–representing over 1.5 billion passenger trips per year.
Engineering at Swiftly
Engineering at Swiftly is not only about writing code – we believe in creating empowered product teams that work together to conceptualize new features and bring them to life. Each team aims to strike a balance between delivering incremental improvements, creating prototypes to test new ideas and mitigate risks, and building scalable software using industry best practices. We’re guided by a mission to positively impact transit riders, and we embrace humility and intentionality in how we make technical decisions so that we best meet our customers’ needs.
Swiftly's office is located in San Francisco, CA. We are open to local or remote hires for this role.
About the Role
You will join Swiftly's rapidly growing engineering team to become a technical leader of our frontend code. While full stack experience is helpful and welcomed, it is important that you are eager to focus your abilities primarily within our client-side code. With a keen eye for design and a love of performance, you will work closely with designers, product managers, and fellow engineers to build products that delight our customers. We are looking for someone who appreciates that technology is not the end goal itself but rather a means to delivering meaningful real-world impact.
While you are passionate about code quality and following best practices, you will act as a technical leader who appreciates that the ultimate goal is to cultivate a robust, high-functioning team. You are eager to work with other engineers – both those more and less experienced – to help everyone on the team improve over time. This means being a strong listener, thoughtful communicator, and patient teacher.
About our Frontend Stack
The more familiarity you have with our existing technology stack the better, but we do not expect applicants to have familiarity with all the technologies we use. Technologies are always evolving, and accordingly we seek to constantly adapt as it makes sense to do so. The following is provided simply to provide a sense of where we are currently.
On the front-end, our MV* framework of choice is Vue.js because of its lightweight approach and excellent performance, but we welcome applicants so long as they have strong experience with any major MV* framework (e.g., React, Angular, Ember, etc.). We use Babel to transpile our JavaScript so we can easily leverage the newest JS features, and we use Webpack for bundling all our assets which enables development perks like hot module replacement. For displaying data, we use charting libraries such as D3.js and for our mapping needs we use Leaflet.js. For animations, we use a mixture of CSS (including preprocessors such as Sass and Stylus) for lightweight animations or Greensocks’s GSAP if we need to get extra fancy. Cypress is our testing framework of choice, and our CI/CD pipelines are managed with Sempahore CI.
We encourage you to apply if you meet half or more of the requirements and are excited to learn about the rest. Above all else, we value candidates who have a positive attitude and the aptitude to learn the requisite skills. We know the tech landscape is ever-changing and strongly support individual growth. If this is exciting to you, then we'd love to talk!


    • Work closely with designers, product managers, and fellow engineers to build products that delight our customers
    • Strive to embody software best practices in your work and proliferate them through mentoring and code reviews
    • Be a leader in the shaping best practices and the architectural vision of our client-side code
    • Embrace a mindset of continuous learning – helping both yourself and those around you adapt as technology constantly evolves

You'll be a good fit if...

    • You are excited to be part of a mission-driven company. Regardless of your why, it is important that you care about the work we do.
    • You are a dynamic team player and seek to make valuable contributions wherever it is most-needed at any given time.
    • You love solving problems with data.
    • You’ve worked on a team (or want to work on a team) that builds software that can be understood and extended by your teammates.
    • You embrace a growth mindset both for yourself and your fellow teammates. At Swiftly, we recognize that technology is always changing and requires continual learning. You love learning and helping those around you grow.
    • You’re open to receiving feedback (a core Swiftly value!), approach technical debates with humility, and participate in blameless postmortems when things go wrong.
