Our team focuses on defining the future for transportation fleets. We are looking for engineers to help build that future by providing a fleet management platform and service marketplace to help our customers to keep their vehicles on the road. Our platform has Scala on the backend, React/Redux on the front end, and a mix of REST and GraphQL APIs. The entire system is composed as a microservices architecture running on AWS.

About You As a backend engineer: you enjoy diving deep into technical details to create performant, distributed systems which reliably perform to business expectations. You strive to create elegant solutions which are composed of simple components.


  • Design, implement, and maintain systems which are responsible for the fleet management, marketplace and platform
  • Create software which fully considers all aspects of performance, security, reliability, and monitoring in a multi-tenant SaaS platform
  • Document and communicate the design of the systems you produce so that other team members can rapidly understand the trade-offs and functioning of the system
  • Be an active participant in an Agile Scrum team which uses ceremonies such as daily standup, sprint planning, and retrospectives to conduct development
  • Coordinate with product management to estimate, refine, and plan the product roadmap for upcoming features and functionality
  • Use test driven development techniques which allow the team to be assured the software being developed is correct
  • Instrument and monitor software produced to ensure it is performing to expectations. Plan and implement changes to the software when it falls outside of performance expectations.
  • Collaborate with data science teams to incorporate models which allow fleet operators to make de-fleeting and cost decisions
  • Integrate our software with internal and external systems which increase the business value to our fleet customers
  • Diagnose, triage, and resolve production defects in the software our team maintains
  • Create GraphQL and RESTful APIs for frontend teams and external partners to access data and perform operations on the system
  • Keep up-to-date status of items in our issue tracking software
  • Mentor junior team members in debugging, testing strategies, design and achieving on-time delivery


  • Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science or a related field.
  • 4+ years in developing software which runs on the JVM, with a strong preference for Scala
  • Track record of designing, implementing, and bringing to production systems in a multi-tenant, cloud based SaaS platform
  • In-depth knowledge of how to design and optimize access of relational databases such as PostgreSQL
  • Development of software which runs on and integrates in the Cloud with a preference for AWS technologies such as ECS, SQS, and RDS
  • Creation of containerized solutions which can be run with Docker
  • Development of software which interacts with messaging systems such as ActiveMQ, RabbitMQ, and Kafka
  • Creation of APIs using GraphQL and RESTful techniques
  • Experience in creating new infrastructure with tools like Terraform
  • Use of distributed version control software such as Git
  • Strong understanding of computer science fundamentals like data structures and algorithms
