Our positive impact

Launched in 2015, Splend provides people from all walks of life the freedom to earn an income through flexible, all-inclusive car subscriptions. Our unique products offer rental or rent-to-buy car subscriptions for rideshare and delivery drivers who work with platforms such as Uber, Bolt, AmazonFlex and more. Essentially, we empower people to take charge of their own career and earning potential. But we don’t just hand over the keys and wave goodbye. Our turn-key solution takes the admin work out of the equation for drivers and uses data insights to keep them safe, freeing up their precious time for all the important things in life.
 
How about our impact on the planet? We’re fast-tracking our transition into green mobility, reducing our carbon footprint by transitioning to electric and hybrid cars. In fact, within the last three months we’ve transitioned over 30% of our global fleet to electric cars, making us an industry leader for this vitally important environmental change.
 
It’s an exciting time to be joining our team as we’re in a period of rapid growth. Find out how you can contribute below and apply today.

How will you be contributing to Splend? The role and opportunity.

    • As a software engineer at Splend you will work closely with product and with management to build the tools that will help us scale.
    • You will form relationships across the business and will see how our operations work first hand.
    • Our fleets are larger than ever before and our tech team is expanding. If you join us you will get to play a part in this growth and will be able to affect key decisions and plans going forward.
    • The three pillars of our team strategy are customer experience, processes and internal tools, and data. There’s overlap between all of them, but they all play a key role in our objective of scaling and transforming the business. Within customer experience, we want to invest heavily in improving the self-service capabilities of our Splend app as well as the underlying back-end architecture.
    • Within processes and internal tools, we need to design and build a suite of new touchpoints to automate existing manual tasks and optimise usability.
    • And for data, we need to build on our existing set of data pipelines to meet the goals of our data strategy, enabling accurate aggregation and dissemination of data from our third-party systems and internal platforms.

    • Our tech stack consists of a blend of different technologies and languages, reflecting the stack we have inherited, as well as strategic choices for new initiatives. For this role you'll primarily be working in Python.
    • Python (backend) and JavaScript (frontend) - our default choice for new implementations
    • React Native (for the mobile app)
    • Lambda or Elastic Beanstalk (potentially ECS)

    • S3
    • SQS
    • Cloudwatch

    • Opsgenie
    • AWS (almost always)
    • Wordpress
    • PHP (legacy stack)

To succeed:

    • You'll be customer obsessed: Passion for consistently providing our customers with great experiences, showing empathy and placing the customer at the centre of everything we do.
    • We'll need your problem solving: An aptitude for problem solving, critical thinking and a passion for continuous improvement.
    • Relationship Building: Strong relationship building skills with an ability to influence and communicate effectively with stakeholders at levels within and outside of the organisation.
