Skilled RoR Backend developer

Donkey Republic Copenhagen Full-time
Salary Competitive
Donkey Republic is running a rapidly growing bike rental service in more than 60 towns across Europe. Our bike service is built on a mobile only approach where the entire experience is brought through our native iOS and Android apps. We work hard to create the best user experience for riders taking our orange Donkeys across town.

What your job will be

You will team up with our skilled product team which today comprises 4 developers, a designer and a CTO. We are currently growing the team with a few heads, so it is a good opportunity to be part of lifting the product to the next level.

These days we are working on a lot of interesting stuff. We just released new pricing and membership packages in our apps, we are currently bringing new types of vehicles, like eScooters and eBikes, to the market and we are working on some advanced solutions for optimising our operations even more.


Who you are

We expect you to have years of experience with building services using the Ruby on Rails framework. You should be self-driven enough to drive the development of the backend forward, while also caring about the overall performance of the team.

We cherish virtues like code reviews, consistency and code conventions and have a big setup of tools to help lint and test our code in any way.

Here we would usually write a technical stack that we would want you to have experience with, but the truth is that we want you to be well structured in your code, take responsibility for what you do and want to constantly improve your already great coding skills. And most of all, we want you to be motivated by working in a social team with the ambition to do the best they can.

Here’s some of the technologies we work with:

  • PostgreSQL
  • Vue.js
  • RSpec
  • Heroku - We are hosted on Heroku
  • And much more

What we offer

A spot in the team of an inspiring international startup, currently growing at a pace that not even we can fully grasp. A job where achieving our vision is as important as creating a bright future for each team member.

We enjoy mindful risk-taking, experimenting with features, getting things done fast and seeing the results of our daily work out there in the real world, where we ultimately help people move easier and explore better - on two wheels.

Working at
Donkey Republic

In 2015, we created an electronic lock and an automated, self-service bike-sharing system in a Copenhagen home basement. Since then, we’ve been taking that system on a ride around the world, while aiming to turn the bicycle into the hero of public transportation and a catalyst for greener, more liveable and less traffic-congested cities.

Donkey Republic is a global bike-share service.The Donkey Republic app allows riders to find a bike nearby in many cities around the world, rent it, and unlock with the app 24/7. Donkey Republic aims to turn the bicycle into the hero of urban mobility and a catalyst for more liveable cities, happier people, and a healthier environment. Currently the company has 7000 bikes on the platform in 19 countries which have been ridden by over 160,000 users.

We are a group of fierce cycling enthusiasts who work hard, challenge each other and learn fast to come up with innovative ways to solve today’s urban mobility challenges. Join the Donkey Squad.
