The Center for Advanced Transportation Technology (CATT) Laboratory is the industry leader for transportation information analysis, visualization, and user interface design. We provide cutting-edge analytics products and an integrated product suite of situational awareness tools for transportation practitioners. These products and services are rapidly changing the way governments operate and make decisions.

We receive hundreds of gigabytes of transportation data daily making our petabytes of archived data likely the largest collection of traffic data in the world. Our clients use our software to analyze that data to generate valuable insights. Our work saves taxpayer money, improves the environment, and saves lives!

We’re as passionate about transportation as we are about building great software. We care about building usable, stable, and secure software to analyze massive amounts of data. We use cutting-edge tech to build and maintain our software. We have a mature development process and use industry best practices to build the best software possible. Our team is composed of developers, analysts, testers, UX designers, data scientists, and customer support operating in an Agile environment.

Our office is in College Park near the University of Maryland, easily accessible by DC Metro, MARC train, bus, car, and bike. Local employees are welcome to work from the office or other locations with a flexible schedule around our core hours. We also have many employees who are fully remote and work from different states. UMD requires all employees to live in the US.

We believe varied perspectives build better products, are proud to have a diverse team, and encourage people of all backgrounds to apply.

You must be available to intern with us for one full year or longer (i.e. your graduation date should be a year or more away), and ready to work 10–20 hours per week during spring and fall semesters, and full-time over the summer.
