Driver Engagement Team @Heetch
We're a thoughtful and extremely talented full-stack product team. We're hiring for talent, not location, that is why you will find members of our group based remotely throughout Europe. Our mission is quite simple; Build a world-class, and engaging platform for our Drivers. Drivers use and rely on the products we build every single day to earn a living. A responsibility that we hold dear and do not take for granted.

Backend within Driver Growth
The services we support and the code we ship are critical to the business. Be it managing and calculating the Acceptance Rate and reward perks of hundreds of thousands of active drivers or building services that help our professional drivers manage their fleet and employees,

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, but feel free to work from any of our offices in Paris, London, Lyon, Bruxelles or Casablanca.
• The courage to fail: We celebrate the wins, but more importantly we're not afraid to fail, we always learn and go again.
• Team Unity: No one is left behind.
• Code quality: It's not software without tests.

What will be your role?
We're looking for like-minded, product-focused Engineers that are ready for a challenge and want to have an impact at scale.

The Driver Engagement team is responsible for the engagement, happiness and retention of our hundreds of thousands of drivers. Which includes, but is not limited to, our Driver Rewards and Incentive-based products, Real-time earnings and report dashboards and all Driver account, fleet and profile services 🚗. Our multi-disciplined team allow us to work autonomously across the realms of our scope - Basically, this means that we own our roadmap entirely, and we empower each team member to contribute and influence how and what we work on.
