Design Lead

Job description

About us

At TravelTime we believe transport data has the power to change the world. Every time we search for a job, new house, or place to go on holiday, we see distances listed alongside search results e.g. “0.8 miles away from city centre”. This information is completely abstract and assumes we can travel in a straight line. It also doesn’t consider local transport links, congestion or local geography.

Consumer websites use distance instead of time because this data can be incredibly expensive at scale. If they used Google to calculate these times, they’d be charged for every single search result, which isn’t cost effective. What’s more, it would slow their site down massively.

That’s where TravelTime comes in – we can calculate hundreds of thousands of travel times simultaneously in the blink of an eye for one fixed annual cost. This patented tech has unlimited market opportunities and is already used by advertisers, real estate, travel and more. Here’s a few clients:

  • Totaljobs filters jobs to candidates based on how long their commute would be
  • Rightmove recommends areas for house hunters to explore based on commute times to the office
  • The NHS matched users with their nearest covid test facility using travel times

We’re VC backed, growth driven and dedicated to providing a great work-life balance.

  • Reporting to Louisa, our CMO
