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.
