IOT Engineer – Pony


Pony is a shared micromobility company with a unique business model.

Pony is the first scheme to decentralise ownership of its vehicles, because we believe shared vehicles should belong to the people who use them. We let any of our users buy our ponies and share their revenue, ensuring that the profits remain in the local economy. We say they ‘adopt’ ponies and we call them ‘pony angels’.

We launched in 2017 as the first European company in the shared micromobility space. Today, we design, produce, and operate bikes and e-scooters across France and the UK. What sets us apart is our unique model and our obsession with quality and sustainability.

Not just getting around, changing the way the world goes round.
