An Insider's view of Metropolis

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Building a network of technology-enabled real estate. We use machine vision, IoT, apps, and distributed computing to blur the boundary of the physical and digital world. Every day is a challenge and a ton of fun.

Bryant

Director of Product

What makes someone successful on your team?

The engineers that are successful on our team know how to focus on not only the technical implementation but also have the ability to deliver results that match the product vision and business needs. Ultimately the more the individual contributes to team success the more they will achieve individual success.

Jamie

Principal Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

If you believe that at some point there will be a critical mass of vehicles on the road that are autonomous, there needs to be tech-enabled infrastructure for that ecosystem to function. We want to transform what has always been a narrowly defined parking business into a mobility company that powers every component of the mobility ecosystem.

Courtney

Co-Founder & Head of Partnerships

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our offices are pretty cool -- we have a relaxation room with turf and couches, great snacks and coffee, a monthly “happy hour” where we go to new places like rooftop restaurants and VR arcades to have fun and connect.

Caroline

Executive Assistant
