Why wait for the future
when we can create it?

We don’t hire people to do jobs. We hire them to invent the future.

What the mission are we up to?

We inspire & develop the builders of optimism.

We like to think of smart as Optimism’s Workshop. That’s why smart is a magnet for people who like to see the good that’s possible, and then work to make it happen. It’s a career path with great weather, views and fellow explorers.

We like putting vision into action.

The smartest choice for a better planet.

It’s easy for us to be optimists at heart because we’ve dedicated ourselves to seeking solutions for a better urban life.

We don't want to predict the future. Instead, we want to create it. And that takes a hands-on mentality and openness to collaboration so we can build the mobility of the future. 

We are motivated by change & innovation combined with our diverse mindset and skills to contribute to our mission.

What’s a new brand new?

We want a future we can’t wait to get to.

You can’t make a new future by using old methods. You need a new, brand new. So sometimes, our ideas might sound a little crazy. That’s how we know we’re on to something. Because anything crazy is not the status quo. Which means it might have a chance of working. And making the kind of planet we all want to live on. So bring your big dreams and out-of-the-box ideas to work please, they have a home here.

Let’s keep the good and make room for the even better.

How you value yourself matters, how you value others really matters.

Fail faster, be nice and be uncomfortably open.
Have a look at some of our values and let’s make it a match.
  • Successful

    Talk. Make. Talk. Make better. Repeat.
    That’s pretty much how we roll here at smart. Because the best ideas are the ones that actually get made. And remade. By doing, we learn more, and learn more about each other. Happy accidents happen when people are happily making. That’s what we think anyway.

  • Authentic

    We aren’t talking about those worn-in jeans you buy new. No. Authenticity for us is your individual quirks, grace, culture, point of view. Bring it all please. Think, talk, object, encourage, and work like no one we've ever seen before, so we can keep making a future together that no one’s ever seen before.

  • Mindful

    What do we mean by that? Well, we believe that if we care about each other, the environment, the planet and especially ourselves, we will become a company that thrives. Being more humble lets us value the diversity and differences in creating the future we all want to have. And feeling good while we do it.

  • Curious

    If ideas are the engine of change, then curiosity is the spark plug. Or to put it even more simply, it's curious people who have all the great adventures. Why wouldn't we want a whole gang of people like that to work with?

Just be you. We haven’t got anyone like you yet.

Culture smart

We are only as good as our employees. No, really. Every time we hire someone, they’re not like anyone else who’s already here. Which means smart becomes different, bigger, more diverse, and quite frankly for us, more interesting. Because you’re now in it.

We are optimists at heart, constantly pushing ourselves to be the frontier of creating the future we all want to live in. And at the same time, always reinventing ourselves as better workmates and employees.

In the end, that's what it always comes down to. Just us. Because when we feel good working together, amazing things happen.

At smart we want people to thrive by shaping an environment that allows us to build the future of mobility out of thin air. And that takes a hands-on mentality and an openness for collaboration.
