Full Stack Developer, Merchant Services (Relocation to Estonia)

Romania, Bucharest /
Engineering – Software Engineering /
Starship Technologies is revolutionizing deliveries with autonomous robots, which means that engineering is at the very core of what we do. Not only does our co-founder & CTO Ahti Heinla still participate in developing our software, but we rely on our engineers to come up with ideas for goals & initiatives, to prioritize, and of course to figure out pragmatic ways of implementing them. We believe that the best decisions are made with input from our collective expertise and intelligence, using a combination of data, reason and enlightened intuition.

While engineering drives our company, our mission drives our people. Our contribution to society includes reducing congestion and pollution, zero emissions deliveries, increasing the quality of life for residents, empowering seniors and disabled people and enabling affordable delivery for local businesses. Our delivery robots have completed over 3 million autonomous deliveries to date, driven 3 million kilometers, and crossed over 17 million roads. Every day our delivery robots are completing thousands of autonomous deliveries across the US, UK and Europe. We’re hitting records on an almost weekly basis. Now is a very exciting time to join as we are growing rapidly around the world!

To continue on this mission, we are looking for a Full Stack Developer (Merchant Services) to join our Apps & Services team.  

Servers are where much of the magic happens. Fleet management, routing robots to customers over the most optimal paths, solving escalations from robots, third party partners and mapping. Also working with telemetry to ensure robots are always at their full health and we always know what’s going on first. Handling robots is a broad challenge – one that combines near real-time systems and more traditional entity management, reliable network connectivity and offline prediction of faults, route optimization and customer delivery flows… and a lot more. 

If you feel comfortable with some of these topics then we should talk!
