Data Scientist – RoadMotion


ClearMotion is a growth technology company on a mission to transform the quality of time we spend in motion—by making transportation more productive, comfortable, fun, and safe. Our team of 160 people is comprised of controls, systems, and software engineers, and we’ve raised $300M from top VCs.
