Who We Are:

At Platform Science, we’re working to connect everything that moves.

Founded in 2015, we are an open IoT platform that partners with innovative fleets, application developers, vehicle manufacturers, and equipment providers in the transportation industry to deliver revolutionary solutions to supply chain professionals across the globe.

Our employees are an engaging, diverse group of people who believe in the power of great ideas. We hire people with different experiences and perspectives to build a company culture that fuels growth through innovation.

We value thoughtful actions and empathy for others.  We approach challenges with resiliency and creativity, while encouraging transparency because, no matter our backgrounds or responsibilities, we are one team.

About the Team:

Platform Science is an engineering-focused organization. We have many separate teams: Incredible Android engineers who are building tablet systems from the OS up, driver legal compliance application builders, navigation teams, and far more. 

To make every one of these teams a success, they need a core Cloud Platform. Our Cloud Platform team owns SSO authentication, User and Driver management, Roles and Permissions systems, feature enablement, and everything else necessary to let other teams focus on their core products’ responsibilities. We sit right at the heart of everything.

Our Cloud Platform team is full-stack. Our backends use PHP/Laravel and NGINX in Docker, or Node/Express microservices in Lambda, serving REST APIs. Our front ends are predominantly VueJS.

Our engineering teams are classic Scrum “two pizza teams” of 3-10 developers and SDETs, plus Product Owner and Scrum Master. With Platform Science well-funded and in hyper-growth, our teams need to build, fork and specialize to deliver on that promise. This leads to equally rapid opportunities for careers to develop with them.

The Right Fit For You:

Platform Science is a rapidly growing company with a lot of teams working on different areas. If you like what you see, but aren’t sure you’re a perfect fit for this one role, please contact us anyway - we may have an even better match for you.

Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor required by law to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We are also required to measure our progress toward having at least 7% of our workforce be individuals with disabilities. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had a disability. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we ask all of our employees to update their information at least every five years.

Identifying yourself as an individual with a disability is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer will be maintained confidentially and not be seen by selecting officials or anyone else involved in making personnel decisions. Completing the form will not negatively impact you in any way, regardless of whether you have self-identified in the past. For more information about this form or the equal employment obligations of federal contractors under Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
