Beep Inc. is looking for motivated team players who want to be part of the autonomous mobility revolution. Beep is a market leader in delivering the next generation of mobility services and technology utilizing driverless, electric, multi-passenger shuttles. By specializing in planning, deploying and managing advanced autonomous shuttles for private and public communities, Beep safely connects people, places and services in first-mile, last-mile mobility networks. Through Beep’s data and learnings from its public road deployments, the company produces vehicle-agnostic, edge solutions meant to enhance safety, enable better access, advance artificial intelligence and extend driverless operating capabilities of autonomous platforms. Beep delivers each day on our primary goals of enabling mobility-for-all, positively impacting the environment and providing the safest rider experience through our unique software and services.
Beep’s Shuttle Attendants are the face of the company. Their ultimate responsibility is to ensure the safety of our riders as well as the shared road users. Shuttle attendant’s daily role is to engage the community by educating and humanizing autonomous technology for increased ridership. A successful candidate will be comfortable engaging and interacting with passengers about the shuttle technology, Beep’s vision, and the communities in which we operate. While the autonomous shuttles operate consistently in driverless mode, Beep has implemented additional safety measures which will require manual operations of the shuttle by means of a handheld gaming controller. This role will also offer the potential for advancement as we continue to grow and scale our business into new markets and areas.
