Project Manager


Palo Alto, CA Remote

Full time

Our Vision

Modern mobility companies – like those operating rideshare, freight, drones and AVs – use digital tools for routing, scheduling, and even basic operations. Cities – which still use paper, signs and people to manage our roadways – have long struggled to keep up. This digital divide has created a quality-of-life crisis for cities. Longstanding challenges like congestion, pollution, and inequities in access and safety are poised to get even worse.

Lacuna is the first company to bridge the gap between modern mobility companies and cities, building digital tools in open source that make it possible to create and enforce local transportation policies digitally. We are the leading provider of digital tools that allow cities to create, communicate, and enforce dynamic transportation policies. Our equity-enhancing and privacy-preserving solutions give cities a full and reliable picture of how their roads and airways are changing in near real-time so that they can create evidence-based policies to address congestion, pollution, access and safety issues, and more. Lacuna paves the way for commercially-operated transportation companies to integrate their modern technologies into cities in a way that works for everyone long-term. Its wholly-owned consultancy, Ellis & Associates, works collaboratively to develop and deliver transportation technology strategic plans and programs, translating city priorities into real outcomes for the public good.  

We have openings across the country for this position. Travel for this position will be approximately 20%, depending on home location.

How You'll Have Impact

Lacuna’s consultancy, Ellis & Associates, supports diverse public sector agencies from across the country - and all levels of government - on projects ranging from durable digital infrastructure implementation to multi-modal mobility strategies, product roadmaps, and technology strategic plans. You will excel at cross-functional collaboration and work with leadership, engineering, partnerships, product, communications, and marketing to deliver value to public sector customers through seamless public-private collaboration. 

Your impact within our company ecosystem and client projects will be broad and far reaching. You will measure your progress by successfully planning and leading strategy, consulting, and technical implementation projects for our customers.   

Responsibilities include project planning, level of effort analysis, project tracking and reporting, customer communications, and team leadership. The ability to both align projects with business goals, and to construct and manage detailed work plans will ensure success in this role.

Your projects will be successful because you are able to bring together, guide, and motivate a strong team of internal employees, customer resources, and partners to deliver high quality, on time results.

We’re building a world-class Professional Services organization and assembling the right team to support our clients seamlessly as we grow. This is an opportunity for someone who wants to be part of something big and transformative, someone who will play a critical role in driving our success and helping to create more efficient, equitable, and safer transportation for our cities.
