MOIA teams that are looking for a Scala Software Engineers (m/f/d)


Our team is responsible for simulating MOIA day to day operations. Real time simulation ensures that all services interact correctly and the fleet can still serve customers in production the same way. Discrete event simulation answers the questions which would require too much production data, and which sometimes would be impossible to get, and helps us figuring out the direction of the product. 



Our team is responsible for providing a convenient and secure payment experience to our passengers. Our team integrates payment flows in a wider distributed system of MOIA and constantly collaborates with other teams to build together key features for the product, as well as drives the development of our own value streams, such as new payment options enhancing the customer experience. To achieve our goals, we build and operate backend microservices and mobile app components with a focus on future proof and resilient architecture.



Our team is responsible for providing a secure, robust and extensible payment platform for the entire company. We encapsulate interactions with Payment Service Providers and ensure financial compliance with automated accounting for MOIA products and services. We build general purpose APIs for other teams to implement payment functionality for their features, and we have an extra focus on quality, reliability and system architecture due to the nature of our domain.
