Your role

  • Deliver an easy booking flow for all our different types of customers

  • Deliver a great experience for drivers that interact with the jobs on our platform

  • Not afraid to argue about tech design and how to deliver above two tasks

The parts of the tech stack you would be working with:

  • A handful of single page web apps for customers and drivers that are written exclusively in TypeScript/React

  • A hybrid app for drivers (this is accomplished by leveraging the CapactiorJS framework)

  • Some redux (but with a keen eye for the trade-offs involved in reaching for global state management)

  • REST API based on Symfony 4

  • Third party APIs for tracking, search and AB tests

  • GitLab CI (along with most of GitLab’s other parts)

Human specs

You’re joining a strong development team of 10 people (6 developers, 1 data scientist, 1 designer, 1 product owner, 1 quality assurance engineer). The rest of the 40 headcount of the company is a split between business, sales, operations and a customer care team. The average age at the company is young in their late twenties (not a goal, just FYI), with the development team being more diverse with a higher count of family people. The team is currently almost fully remote with some weekly office work planned when it’s responsible to do that again. We’re light on meetings, our Scrum ceremonies are on a predefined schedule. We use GitLab for issue tracking (simplicity is a virtue), Slack+Google Meets for video calls, Slack for async communications. Email load is light for devs, meetings are banned on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
