Join us as a Scala Engineer (m/f/d) in the Trip Execution 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 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

Our team is responsible to execute a customer’s trip. That means, we have to find the right MOIA for them, manage the journey, and make sure they reach their destination on time. To achieve that we are set up as a cross-functional team which owns its part of the customer App and develops and operates a distributed back-end system. This responsibility makes us an essential part of MOIA’s business model, and it allows us to have a direct impact on the product and company. 


What you will do

MOIA’s service is composed of many different states. Each car and each customer has one. Together with us you - as a Back-End Software Engineer - will be responsible to manage these different states and to make sure our vehicles pick-up and deliver our customers on time. For that we work on a highly distributed system which is connected to our fleets and customers. To make trips happen we are also going to work on an integration layer that is connected to many of MOIA’s specialized sub-systems that allow us to: 

  • Execute trips by finding the right vehicle for a customer. 
  • Optimally distribute our fleet over a city to match predicted demand. 
  • Manage vehicle maintenance. 
  • and much more … 

 In our team you will have the chance to take on responsibility, work on projects spanning the organization, and have an impact on the company.
