About the Role

We need backend engineers with proven experience in Rails. In particular, we need self-managed people who can run with a new code base without a lot of hand holding. We're in the process of a big refactor/cleanup while also delivering features, so you should expect and relish this kind of work.

You'll be taking on the challenge of designing and maintaining a fault tolerant system that handles thousands of connected IoT devices and mobile apps, driving a fleet of scooters across the United States.

Our stack is primarily Ruby (Rails, Grape, RSpec), Go, Javascript (React Native), RDS, PostgreSQL and Redis. We're currently hosted on Heroku and AWS, though we are constantly evaluating hosting options as we scale.

The Team

We're seasoned engineers who've worked in a variety of languages, companies and development workflows. While we're all polyglots, we have a long love affair with Rails. We own our and deploy our code. We're concerned about code clarity and communication, as we feel it's the best measure of quality.

We promote being a more well rounded engineer by working on different parts of the engineering stack. We also work in small groups to keep processes and overhead low, so we have a lot of trust and accountability to perform the work required to build the best product. We're still working out the best processes for our team to thrive.

  • Collaborate with other teams to build and support server-side logic and interfaces that power our product and features
  • Write backend services and APIs
  • Build for scale, availability, performance and security across the stack
  • Extend our public API so developers and partners can take advantage of our platform
  • Deliver quality software through comprehensive code reviews and automated testing
  • Push your team forward onto the latest and greatest, be it engineering practices, libraries, tools or products

  • Minimum of 3 years of relevant experience in backend development (Ruby on Rails, Go)
  • You have worked with a team of people to build an entire product end-to-end
  • You understand relational database systems and schema design
  • You have created and supported APIs
  • You have experience with how systems work at scale
