open position

data engineer

Automotus helps cities better understand, manage, and monetize their curbs. We use computer vision deployed at the edge to guide planning decisions, autonomously charge companies for parking by the minute, and automate enforcement, while also helping fleets save money by operating more efficiently and avoiding parking citations.

Our team is small but growing fast. We're currently looking for our first data engineer, who will be a critical asset in designing, building, and implementing the data pipelines that form the foundation of our product.

Given the size of the team and the fluid nature of technical roles in an early-stage organization, we're most interested in applicants who have killer data engineering skills, but aren't opposed to getting their hands dirty elsewhere in our stack.

We strongly encourage women and people from underrepresented groups to apply.
