The Role

We’re looking for a Ruby on Rails developer to work on an architecture where the backoffice interacts with our mobile application and our fully connected bike. The role will be working in a team of web engineers, along-side our mobile developers and other relevant functions such as hardware and firmware, and reporting into the VP of Engineering. For this role we would like someone with solid Ruby on Rails development although would be willing to consider someone with exceptional experience building microservices, or with python, or node.js.

You’ll need to integrate SIM Card management, end-of-line testing from our factory, remote bike diagnostic (like Tesla) and proactive failure management (detecting potential battery failure for instance) to provide world class customer support to our riders. A good chunk of the work will be supporting our internal tools but you will also be facing many complex challenges within logistics, remote repairs, distribution (test rides available in 60+ cities), manufacturing, data warehousing, etc.

What you’ll be doing

  • Work independently or with other engineers to develop user-experience focused web applications, or provide support for existing systems.
  • Collaborate with designers, frontend developers, firmware engineer, hardware engineer to understand business goals, analyse requirements, formulate solutions, and ensure the successful execution and delivery of the end product.
  • Assist in scoping, estimating, and planning of projects.
  • Participate in code review, pairing, and other forms of knowledge sharing.
