Axon-Vibe-Engineering

Axon Vibe provides the technology to help public transport operators get ready for and lead one of the fastest, deepest, most consequential disruptions of transportation in history. By late 2020s, its predicted that U.S. passenger miles travelled will be served by on-demand vehicles owned by fleets, not individuals, in a new business model Transport-as-a-Service (TaaS).  TaaS will unify public, private & autonomous transportation into an efficient service, that users can pay for with a single account. TaaS is predicted to virtually eliminate road accidents and we may see a largely carbon-free road transportation system.

Axon Vibe are building a location-based contextual platform that detects and predicts human behavior. It was founded in 2014 by location technology veterans (Google Maps, Endoxon, Multimap) and has assembled a 100-strong team of software engineers, machine learning experts, designers and product visionaries.

Individual experience and education is great, but the right attitude gets you a long way. We trust our team. We are agile, and strive to continuously improve, one small win at a time. We like to do things together: running, eating, skiing, hiking, especially at our bi-annual get-together in Lucerne.  We also like the Open Sans Light Font, screaming goats and real BBQs.
