Senior Engineering Manager

Our mission

Our mission is to help build the connected city of the future. Data will be the catalyst for urban change in this century and cities will need new tools to help manage this shift. We believe that the data generated within cities should be accessible, insightful, and actionable. Technology should empower our civil servants to spend more time solving real problems. We are helping cities and communities while also building a profitable business and returning revenue to municipal governments

What we do

STAE provides a single platform for all city data. Because data is stored on one platform with well-defined APIs it becomes much simpler for a city, its vendors and third-party developers to build tools that leverage all of a city’s services. Imagine a world where connected traffic infrastructure, public safety, and emergency services can communicate in real-time. When an accident is reported, a city can dynamically reroute traffic to clear the road for emergency response teams to arrive as quickly as possible, avoiding gridlock and saving lives.

Our core values 

  • Operate as a team, we over me.
  • People first - everything we do, internally and externally, is for the benefit of humans.
  • Empower employees to make decisions in the best interests of the company.
  • Work to understand, accept, and embrace diversity. 
  • Constructively question the expected; disagree, but don’t dwell on differences of opinion.
  • Deliver truth via open and honest communication. Default to transparency.
