Join us as a Senior Backend Engineer (m/f/d) in Berlin or Hamburg in the Street Routing Team on a shared journey that matters!

Behind the scenes of our well-known vehicles, MOIA GmbH develops the technical products underlying MOIA. Our team of more than 200 employees develops an on-demand carpooling service in the form of an end-to-end integrated product, from hub, fleet, and driver management to passenger and B2B solutions. At our offices in Berlin and Hamburg, international teams of developers, engineers, designers, and strategists work on a shared mission. As a tech company, more than half of our employees are developers. We pursue value-driven development based on our product values of comfort, reliability, safety, and privacy. 

The enthusiasm we have is obvious. We love our cities, we love living in them and we love staying in motion with them. Simultaneously, we aspire to be a leading company in the fields of rethinking mobility and improving urban transportation by making it more relaxed, more affordable and an entirely positive experience for everyone. 

MOIA gets things moving. On a shared journey – towards an easier, smarter, and more meaningful future. 

About your team:

The street routing team is building an essential part of MOIA's business model. The system helps us safely guide our ever-growing fleet of vehicles through cities and predict accurate ETAs for our customers. By identifying high demand areas inside cities, we want to navigate our fleet most efficiently such that vehicles carrying only a single passenger are avoided and the congestion in cities is reduced.   

What you will do

  • You and your team build and maintain a software system to provide travel times and directions for our vehicle fleet. The travel times directly influence the assignment of customers to vehicles and yield ETAs for our customers. Hence, high accuracy is mandatory and monitoring and improving it is your daily business 
  • In other scenarios, only approximate travel times are required but at a high volume. You will actively participate to develop data structures that support approximate travel time queries and continuously improve the quality and the required costs to build and maintain such a data structure
  • To reach these targets jointly, you become part of a cross-functional team comprising software engineers with different areas of expertise such as routing algorithms, geospatial computation and data analysis, microservice architecture in distributed systems, as well as Android Development 

What will help you to fulfill your role

  • Solid professional experience in developing highly efficient applications in Golang and willing to touch other languages if the task requires it (e.g., Kotlin, Python, TypeScript) 
  • Having deep experience in developing and designing software for microservice-based environments. Familiarity with Docker, Kubernetes, and AWS managed services for deployments as well as Protobuf, REST, and gRPC for interservice communication is a plus
  • Be ready to live and breathe DevOps and believe in automated testing, infrastructure as code, and continuous deployment
  • An understanding of the complexity of algorithms and the desire to dig deep in order to squeeze the last bit of performance out of our systems
  • Strong interest in working with geospatial data (maps, routes, GPS traces), routing algorithms and routing APIs. Previous experience in this area is beneficial, but not mandatory
  • You enjoy collaborating and sharing knowledge with colleagues (e.g. pair coding) 

We encourage you to apply even if your profile does not meet all of the requirements for the role yet. We embrace individual growth at MOIA.
