Montreal, QC or remote

Full time

Transit agencies are more than just buses and trains. They’re remarkable organizations, ferrying millions of passengers each day, usually to little fanfare. But without them, we’d need millions more cars, thousands more bridges and tunnels, and billions more barrels of oil. Transit agencies not only keep us from traffic apocalypse — they’re what keep our cities green, vibrant, and nimble.

And that’s why your job as Transit’s product marketer is so important: you’ll make transit agencies more powerful, and delight their riders with spellbinding features that no stock agency app could even dream of.

Our partner agencies hail from Europe, North America, and those kangaroo- and kiwi-infested islands in the Pacific. Millions of transit riders enjoy the fruits of our agency collaborations: from automatic detour detection, to service alert dashboards, to rider surveying software, to GTFS cleaning, to mobile ticketing, ad infinitum.

Your mission — if you choose to accept it — will be to see the world through a transit agency’s eyes, figure out how our suite of services can fill in the gaps in the rider experience, then inspire agencies to give ‘em a test drive. Your day-to-day will involve a lot of writing: from crafting abstracts for transit conferences (where we plant the seeds for industry trends and whet our partners’ appetites with forthcoming Transit features), to drafting pitch decks and case studies for agencies to read, to whipping up press releases, to preparing a whole motley of other marketing content that showcase the full extent of Transit’s power.

You’ll bring an intricate knowledge of the transit industry, be thoroughly versed in Transit’s product and mission, and use your B2B marketing skills to help us nail the best framing for features new and old. If you succeed? You’ll lighten the load for our overworked agency colleagues, delight their riders, and set a new benchmark for the customer experience — something that everyone in our industry will take note of.

📝 Responsibilities

  • Refine our B2B product messaging and tailor it to current and prospective partners

  • Figure out how to best frame new Transit features for an agency audience — making sure agencies know how each new technical feat will make riders happier while saving their agency time and money 

  • Get your knowledge of our app down cold, learn who our partners are, and develop a knack for where the industry is headed

  • Cobble together marketing materials for our products: sales sheets, case studies, web pages, emails, the usual

  • Support our business, graphic design, and partner success teams: from pitch decks to conference materials to partner engagement emails

  • Work closely with our community manager and copywriter: you’ll draft outlines for them to riff off for B2B social media posts, newsletters, and the like

  • Collaborate occasionally with external partners like transit agencies (e.g. when they are launching a new feature with us for the first time) and other mobility companies (e.g. on the integration of new functionality like bus detours into the app)

  • Read the room and figure out which products to pitch at which conferences, and land us speaking slots so we can preach the Transit gospel to folks who are ready to hear it

✅ Requirements

  • At least 3-4 years of experience in a B2B marketing role (at a mobility company and/or in GovTech would be lovely)

  • Y’all can write good: no matter the medium, no matter the audience. Can’t find le mot juste? Call 1-800-COPYWRITER and we’ll come to your assistance

  • You’re a storyteller who can see the forest from the trees, framing geeky technical features in a way that makes partners care about them

  • You are a long-time user of the Transit app! 😱

  • You know how public transit agencies work, you’re a committed urbanist, and you know the B2B players in the industry

  • You’ve got excellent project management skills, and can coordinate across teams, partners, stakeholders, while navigating competing interests and priorities

  • You’re familiar with the usual stable of marketing tools

  • Practically-perfect English. (90% of our business involves partners in the US, English Canada, and other countries who conduct their business in Joni Mitchell’s mother tongue. However, in an ideal world, you’d be à l'aise belting out your jazz standards in French like Édith Piaf.)

💯 Would be nice if

  • The more languages you can speak, write, and play Wordle in, the better

  • You have experience in startups

  • Some design chops as you will be helping graphic design and the business team with various product decks (and our designers are exacting!)

Don’t feel like all the requirements apply to you but you still think you’d be a great fit for Transit? Don’t hesitate to apply!

💰 Compensation and benefits

$70 000 - $105 000 CA per year, based on experience

  • Stock options

  • Comprehensive medical and dental coverage

  • 5 weeks vacation

  • Four-day work week at full-time salary (yes, you read that right)

  • Apple laptop and equipment

  • $1,600 annual mobility allowance. STM? BIXI? Uber? E-bike? Scooter? Going car-free is free at Transit.

  • A training and development budget

  • Generous maternal/paternal/parental leave policy. Gotta fill out our tandem bicycles somehow!

  • Flexible work hours

  • Spend your days surrounded by first-rate teammates and the best view of Montreal and/or [insert exotic Zoom background]

  • When you’re in the office: you’ll be in urbanist heaven, surrounded by Mile End’s urban gardens, bike paths, BIXI docks, bus stops, a metro station, and limitless restaurants… cafés… bars… concert halls… bagel boutiques…

  • Communal lunch-and-learn with free food in the office each week

👨‍💻 A note on diversity

Public transit is used by overwhelmingly more women and people of colour than other modes of transportation. We try to make sure the diversity of our users is reflected in the team that serves them. Because when we include people of all races, genders, sexual orientations, ages, and identities — we end up building a better app for everyone who uses Transit.

We encourage candidates of all ages, genders, origins and orientations to apply. If you’d like to specify which pronouns you use, feel free to include that in your application email.

And if your lived experience has given you a unique perspective on all things transportation, mobility, accessibility, urbanism? Let us know, and we’ll make sure your application gets the attention it merits.

📬 How to apply

Send your resume, some past writing samples, integrated b2b marketing projects or a portfolio to jobs+marketing@transitapp.com along a quick summary of who you are and why you’re interested in the role. We look forward to meeting you!

PS: When you apply, let us know how you heard about the position! Whispers, grapevines, middle-of-the-night Google searches? We’re dying to know.
