Who are we?

At Intersection, we are at the forefront of the smart cities revolution. Our mission is to improve daily life in cities & public spaces, with products that bridge the digital & physical worlds by delivering connectivity, information & content to enrich our everyday journeys & elevate the urban experience.

We pair our human-centered methodology with cutting-edge technology to design, develop, deliver, & maintain unique products & experiences in public space that deliver value to advertisers, cities, & consumers. Whether partnering with urban transit systems to revolutionize commuting & travel, with cities to transform how they connect with residents & visitors, or private developers to create unforgettable experiences in neighborhoods & districts, our solutions are scalable platforms on which our clients can build the future.

Intersection is backed by Alphabet through its urban technology company Sidewalk Labs.

We work in cross-functional teams, implement infrastructure as code, use CI for testing, & solve problems using creativity & wisdom. We work with hardware we can touch & infrastructure we will never see. But the most important thing is that we work closely with smart & creative people to solve problems important to our products & clients, using automation at every opportunity to eradicate manual toil.

  • You have a keen ability to understand the needs of the business & our clients & work with engineers & product managers to ensure the infrastructure & deployment methods achieve business & technical objectives
  • You want to help make our development practices better & reduce friction from idea to deployment
  • You are comfortable working as a senior member of a team, helping establish team standards, mentoring those junior to you, & discussing the pros & cons of tools & technical approaches with all team members
  • You are able to evaluate new technologies & clearly communicate the benefits & risks of adoption
  • You are resourceful, intellectually curious, & self-motivated to learn new things & stay abreast of top technology trends
