Northeastern University's partnership with The Routing Company provides co-op opportunities that could lead to full-time jobs, benefiting students, and employers.
The Routing Company is a global on-demand vehicle routing and management startup and the developer of the Pingo family of apps. It has 44 employees and is based in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
