Blaise is on a mission to clean up our streets - clean them of single-occupant cars and empty city buses. Technology has disrupted how we receive and purchase services - from vacations to food delivery to taxi services. Blaise is on a mission to transform the way we access and use public buses.
Our on-demand bus platform allows any transit agency in the world to run dynamic bus services - a service that changes routes and schedules constantly based on where people want to go. In less than a year of existence, we’ve been able to start working with some of Canada’s largest transit authorities to make this vision a reality.
You write code while sitting on public transit, complaining about how much better this service could be if it was optimized. You chose to study software because you’re obsessed with using technology to have a positive social and environmental impact. You want a co-op employer that trusts you to excel in the things you do know and learn the things that you don’t know. You want to work with transit-loving teams that have a “let-me-teach-you-how-to-do-that” attitude.
Sound like you? If so, you might be Blaise’s next software engineering co-op student.
You’ll be making key modifications and adding features to our backend that will provide additional functionality to Blaise’s users and partner transit agencies.
