21st Century Transportation Field Director, U.S. PIRG, Based in Boston, DC, or Chicago
Our Field Organizer will work with our people around the country on the transportation campaign, setting them up for campaign tactics or reaching out to the media, public leaders and civic organizations yourself. You will sometimes need to travel — recruiting new groups to join a coalition, speaking in a church basement or town hall to win a new endorsement, organizing a news event or rally, meeting with an editorial board, or doing whatever else it takes to urge our public officials to do the right thing.

21st Century Transportation Campaign Director, U.S. PIRG, Based in Boston, DC, or Chicago
We’re hiring a Transportation Campaign Director to lead our national transportation campaign to advocate against spending so many public dollars on unnecessary highway expansion and to advocate for better public transit, biking and walking infrastructure, and repairing the roads we already have. Led by Millennials, Americans are driving less than they used to, but government policies haven’t caught up with the times. We aim to change that.

Launch Project Manager, Alta Bicycle Share, NYC
We at Alta Bicycle Share, located in NYC, are seeking a Launch Project Manager. This role requires a high level of judgment, decision making, and time management. This is an exciting opportunity for a high performing individual to be part of the Launch Team in a growth environment.

Systems Architect, Alta Bicycle Share, NYC
We at Alta Bicycle Share are looking for an engineer with the intellectual curiosity, attention to detail, and bottomless memory to understand how our bike share systems work end to end and help design them into the future. You don’t need to be in the code or circuit boards, but do need to understand how all the pieces fit together and pin down problems (and responsible parties) when they occur. As the systems develop, you will help roadmap their development and figure out who needs to do what to which part of the system to make it work.

Technical Project Manager, Alta Bicycle Share, NYC
We at Alta Bicycle Share are looking for a Technical Project Manager who thinks relentlessly about who does what by when, everything that can go wrong, and how to make it all come together in the end. Someone who knows enough about technology to identify risks and evaluate plans, but doesn’t need to be the one actually writing the code or designing the system. Someone who always has a plan B and a Plan C, and can stay cool when everything else seems to be going wrong. This is an exciting opportunity for a high performing individual to be part of the Technology Team in a growth environment.

Policy Analyst (PAE030), Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning, Chicago
The Chicago Metropolitan Agency for Planning (CMAP) is seeking to hire a Policy Analyst. CMAP is the official regional planning organization for the northeastern Illinois counties of Cook, DuPage, Kane, Kendall, Lake, McHenry, and Will. CMAP developed and now guides the implementation of metropolitan Chicago’s comprehensive regional plan, GO TO 2040, which was adopted unanimously by leaders from across the seven counties in fall 2010. To address anticipated population growth of more than 2 million new residents, GO TO 2040 establishes coordinated strategies that help the region’s 284 communities address transportation, housing, economic development, open space, the environment, and other quality-of-life issues.

Program Analyst, TransitCenter, NYC
TransitCenter, a civic foundation that supports and catalyzes innovation in sustainable urban mobility, seeks a Program Analyst to join its New York City office. The successful candidate will be an integral member of a growing organization and assist in conducting research, developing and implementing programs and projects related to improving transportation in cities, as well as building organizational capacity.

Outreach/Education Manager, Citi Bike, NYC
We are seeking a new Outreach and Education Manager to oversee the community outreach process around expansion in partnership with our client, the NYC Department of Transportation. The Outreach and Education Manager will also assume responsibility for and grow our existing outreach and education programs. This role requires a high level of judgement, political sensibility, decision making and time management.
