About the 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 vehicle and each trip has one. Together with us, you - as a Backend Software Engineer - will be responsible for managing these different states and making 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 and 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.  

What will help you to fulfil your role  

We’re looking for an engineer with experience, ideally in the following areas. Don’t feel discouraged if you don’t meet all the enlisted skills. We embrace individual growth at MOIA.

  • Live and breathe DevOps and believe in automated testing, infrastructure as code, continuous deployment, monitoring, and open communication. 
  • Experience building distributed systems.  
  • Hands-on experience with the Akka ecosystem (streams, cluster).

  • Interest in other languages and frameworks, ideally including TypeScript.
  • Are keen to receive and give feedback in pairing and code review sessions.
  • Communicate fluently in English.  

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