Join us as a Scala Engineer (m/f/d) 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 ridesharing 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 it. 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

At MOIA’s payment teams we focus on providing a smooth and secure payment experience to our customers while ensuring compliance with the law. To achieve these goals, we build and run software which interacts with our payment service providers, supports diverse payment method options, generates, and delivers various financial documents, manages discount vouchers, automates accounting, and allows the passengers to show their appreciation for our drivers by tipping them after the ride. We operate software, which is critical to support MOIA’s day-to-day operations, as well as develop new features aiming to make the customer experience even better. The payment backend comprises multiple reactive microservices written entirely in Scala that are integrated in a wider polyglot distributed system. Therefore, we take great care that our technical design and system architecture are scalable and resilient. Due to the nature of our domain, we also put in extra effort to ensure the correctness and quality of our software and we are not afraid to take full ownership of our products – from inception through development to ensuring smooth operation.
