People powered analytics for the gig economy.
Driver’s Seat is an early-stage startup building a driver-owned data cooperative for gig economy workers. We’re developing tools to solve important problems alongside the workers who represent a crucial and growing part of our economy, which requires thought and care in what we build and how we build it.
As an engineer on our team, you’ll have the opportunity to join a company and a product from the start, working across every part of the stack to implement end-to-end features that improve daily work for drivers. This role is a full-time contract position (compensated up to $8,300 a month, depending on experience and skills), with the opportunity to convert to employee status and build an equity stake in the cooperative.
We have seen and heard how the gig economy makes life harder and more precarious for workers of color and women. Our mission to transform gig work through shared data ownership extends to naming, challenging, and remedying the ways that outcomes on gig platforms are unequal.
Hiring and empowering a diverse team is a core component of Driver’s Seat Cooperative's work to advance justice. The gig economy products we develop benefit from a range of perspectives, which can only come from diversity of all types and at all levels of our organization. Achieving true diversity and inclusion is the right thing to do and fundamental to our business success. So we strongly encourage women, people of color, people with disabilities, and LGBTQIA+ people to apply.
We’re creating a safe environment for all to feel heard without judgment or fear of retribution. Psychological safety is one of our main priorities and we have zero tolerance for disrespectful, rude, or discriminatory behavior.
