Driver Team @Heetch

We'd love the opportunity to discuss this role with you - we consider ourselves a group of talented, motivated, caring and product focussed engineers all working together to solve complex problems, design and build simple software that scales, while constantly working to improve and scale the Driver side of the product at Heetch.

The opportunity and challenge ahead for this team is huge and will have a direct impact on the success of the business as we continue to grow in 2021 and beyond. We are looking for a motivated Engineer, with a product and collaborative mindset, to help design and build microservices that empower and enable tens of thousands of Drivers to earn a living on Heetch each day.

We are the centre piece of a Drivers lifecycle and thus interact with most teams at Heetch. We aim to ship small and often throughout the duration of a Sprint and on a day-to-day basis you can expect to work in unison with product, design, mobile, frontend and the business operational teams to ensure our product is forever improving one deployment at a time.


Technology you can expect to work with

• Micro-services written in Go
• Kafka
• Docker with Mesos & Marathon.
*and well, if you think a piece of tech that will solve a problem, go for it, we're always eager to learn and you are encouraged to experiment.

What will you do?

• Work with engineers to design, build, ship and maintain microservices in production 🚢
• When needs must, debug issues direct on production spanning multiple services and stacks.
• Contribute to architectural and design decisions, at scale, around our microservice and event-driven architecture.
• Work on large scale extraction projects, as we migrate legacy systems (Ruby), into our event-driven architecture.
• Participate in Code Reviews and provide feedback to your colleagues.
• Share knowledge with everyone and help your team to grow.
• Have the freedom to experiment. Intrigued by a new tech or library? Go for it! Let's see how it improves our services.
• Have product ownership by working closely with Product, mobile and data teams. It's not just about writing code.

Does it sound like you?

• You've got more than 5 years of experience as a software engineer.
• You've worked with micro-services in production.
• You have designed and developed elegant APIs that are easy to use and well documented.
• You think before you code and look at the wider problem we are trying to solve.
• You're eager to learn and push boundaries, just like we are! 🚀
• You are curious by nature and not afraid of leaving your comfort zone.
• You are comfortable communicating to a wide set of audiences, from technical to non-technical
• You are ready to have impact at scale!
+ If you've worked with Ruby and Kafka in production, it's a plus :)


Studies have shown that women are less likely to apply to roles in Tech, which is why we strongly encourage you to apply even if you don't feel you match 100% of the job specifications!
