Roughly 54% of the current global population live in urban areas. Here's a challenge! By 2050 that population will increase to 9 billion with 66% calling the urban environment home. Make what you do matter, every day. Be a part of Cubic's vision by developing technology aimed at helping billions of travellers move more easily within and between the world's major cities. We are a leading integrator of payment and information solutions. That means travellers make smarter travel decisions and transportation agencies manage demand across the entire transportation network - all in real time. Take a major customer like TfL (Transport for London). It trusts us to provide the technology needed for their passengers to move freely and easily across its network of buses, train and underground stations and roadways. Be it London's Oyster, Sydney's Opel or Chicago's Ventra, our contactless payments and traffic management systems keep the transport network moving. We challenge ourselves to remain at the forefront of our industry and continually develop new tools to keep up with ever-changing technologies and the growing demand for simpler travel solutions. That's a big task and we need your help.
