Transit Squad seeks Backend Engineer (f/m)

we’re the transit team at moovel. We build services, munch data and process real-time information in all things transit - and we’re looking for a backend engineer in the Berlin office to join us in our effort to provide great public transit APIs as one of the pillars for moovel’s rapidly expanding mobility platform.

Our vision is a planet without traffic jams. Our mission is to transform cities by providing the most convenient and sustainable mobility solutions. We create outstanding products with technical excellence, an agile mindset, an open feedback and failure culture and fun at work. moovel is part of a large global corporation (Daimler AG), but at the heart of it we still are a startup. We act as a partner for cities, transport networks and mobility service providers with the goal of making cities smarter and creating an operating system for urban mobility that provides access to appropriate mobility options in urban areas and paves the way for the future with autonomous vehicles. Currently, 250 employees work in small creative teams in Germany and the US at four locations - Hamburg, Berlin, Stuttgart and Portland.

We gather in small engineering teams organized around specific topics. The individual teams enjoy a high degree of autonomy, trust and responsibility. Innovation is key and very much encouraged and embraced in our teams. We value pragmatism, simplicity and collaboration. We live an open feedback and failure culture, because we know that both are necessary to find proper solutions.

With us you’ll use state of the art technology and work self-determined in small, autonomous and agile teams. moovel tries to maintain a culture where engineers are provided with the toolsof their choice and a friendly environment in which they can thrive.

Teams at moovel choose the tools they regard as best fit for their problems, at their discretion. Hence the technology stack is rather diverse. We employ a microservice backend architecture based on Docker and AWS. Cloud Services are leveraged wherever they help us to focus on our task. We practice Continuous Delivery and value DevOps culture (you build it, you run it). On the Frontend (IOS, Android and Web) we adopted and embraced Technologies like Swift, Kotlin, Rx or React.

Breaking down concrete tasks for this position is not that easy, but that's what makes it so exciting. Here are some things we want to entrust you right away:

  • You write, monitor, scale and architect microservices that comprise our transit backend
  • You build infrastructure and tooling for importing data into our data stores
  • You develop services using Node.js & Python
  • You perform analysis to enable data driven decisions
  • You write processing pipelines in Python
  • Collaborate with cross-functional teams to define, design and ship new features

You should have experience in writing, maintaining & debugging web services. You should be concerned about quality and maintainable code. Some exposure to functional programming, async concepts and micro services would be useful. While having working experience in the Node.js or Python web stack is a plus, it’s not a show-stopper in case you’re flexible and well versed in alternatives like Rails or Play. Since we are working in a rapidly evolving environment you should be open to pick up new languages, tools and frameworks. Furthermore, we are working with Amazon Web Services so it would be good if you are familiar with cloud technologies and methodologies like 12 Factor.

You should be familiar with SQL. Additionally, it would be nice if you have experience with any of Elasticsearch, Lucene, Solr or similar search technologies.

As it is our corporate language, you should have good written and verbal communication skills in English.


  • Choose your own hardware
  • Working with newest technologies & microservices
  • Company pension plan
  • Free breakfast, coffee & water
  • Mobility allowance
  • Be part of an interdisciplinary team of experts
  • Working on products with a high impact on society
  • International teams
  • Child care allowance
  • Flexible working hours
