About Ito World:

Our Mission

Our overall aim is to reduce pollution and congestion in urban environments. We deliver data and software solutions that make it easier for the public to discover and navigate shared transport options, such as public transport and micromobility. We work with some of the largest tech companies in the world as well as governments to maximize our impact.

Working at Ito World

We’re a mission driven and diverse team of 80+ people from over 18 countries with a passion for technology and transportation.

We’re interested in talented, curious people that share our mission and love data as much as we do.

You should join us if:

You value growth

Your work at Ito World will be varied and interesting. Depending on your preferences and strengths, you can grow your career and material progression by developing as a people leader, technical specialist or individual contributor.

You want to solve interesting problems

Whether you join our Engineering, Product, Data Ops or Commercial teams, you will solve interesting problems every day. Our data is used to power millions of journeys across the globe so the problems you will solve are complex, varied and impactful.

You care about impact

We work with Google, Apple, Microsoft as well as government organisations such as DfT and TfWM. Your work will therefore impact millions of travellers every day enabling them to choose the most environmentally sustainable transport options, thereby reducing congestion and pollution.
