Marketplace Team @Heetch
We build pricing, matching and maps technology to create a balanced, reliable and accessible marketplace for our drivers and passengers.
It's our responsibility to align the different needs of drivers and passengers by building technology to provide reliable earning for drivers and affordable prices for passengers.

Our biggest challenge, as a team, is to keep our marketplace healthy and users happy in the different cities that we operate. We aim to build flexible and maintainable products to support the growth into highly diverse markets around Europe and Africa.

Our domains:
Pricing: We calculate upfront prices based on the estimated ride time and distance, as well as demand patterns and other data insights.
Matching: Our goal is to find the best match for drivers and passengers, this is reducing the average wait time for everyone (no, it's not the closest one anymore).
Maps: Yes, you are right, we need maps to provide such functionalities.

Our team's values:
Transparency: We discuss everything openly within the team. Our speak up culture is strong.
Remote first: Our team is fully distributed, and we work hard at that.
Data driven: Our decisions are made with hard empirical evidence and not gut feel.
Team unity: We are only as good as our team is.
Courageous: We are bold and not afraid to challenge the status quo.
Code quality: We strive to write clean, testable and maintainable code.

Tech stack:
Within our event-driven architecture you will mainly find Golang and Python microservices talking each other asynchronously through Kafka.
