Company Overview

Superpedestrian is a venture-backed company operating out of Cambridge, Massachusetts. Founded late 2012 by Assaf Biderman, Associate Director at MIT's Senseable City Lab, Superpedestrian develops products aimed at transforming mobility in urban areas and seeks new ways to connect people with their environment.

With an exclusive license to MIT's Copenhagen Wheel, we are bringing together design, robotics, and mobile technologies to provide new forms of human-powered mobility for cities. Ultimately, our vision is to offer an improved quality of living for everyone.

People at Superpedestrian are both thinkers and doers with a wide variety of backgrounds. They are analytical and artistic, conservative and uncoventional, methodical and whimsical. If you are creative and committed, and you like making things, you might belong on our team. You will be expected to challenge and be challenged, create and innovate. You must have a genuine passion for producing the best product experience, regardless of its kind.

Life at Superpedestrian is about creating the magic that people feel while riding the Copenhagen Wheel. Whether you're a robotics engineer designing a real-time response system, a designer creating a beautiful object, or responsible for organizing ride events around the world, we work together.

You don’t have to be the world’s most obsessed cyclist but you do have to possess a strong love for cities and a desire to make them better. Our products make people go wow, and our commitment is to offer fun and compelling alternatives to driving a private car.
