Job Description

About Spin

Spin is a fast-growing micromobility company committed to a world with clean air, liveable cities, safe streets, and widespread access to convenient, affordable transportation. If you’re searching for a top-tier career where you can make a difference and dynamically collaborate within a creative, lively environment—Spin welcomes you!

We’re passionate about transportation and technology. The work we accomplish fulfills a sense of meaning and purpose, which goes beyond the traditional dimensions of a workplace. Our products and initiatives directly influence people’s lives, which is proven by our customers' feedback.

Founded in 2017, and now a subsidiary of Ford Motor Company, we have worked together with cities, campuses, community groups, and businesses to expand internationally. Even as we expand, we maintain the close feeling of a small business, with “fireside chats” chats led by our company’s founders, weekly OKR pop-up videos, music-infused presentations at our All Hands meetings, and more. During this time of working remotely, our creativity and shared goals have kept us united and bonded within our virtual community.

We are a diverse team of artists, engineers, designers, urban planners, policymakers, marketers, and operators. We believe in inclusivity and build powerful alliances to fulfill our goals and move our mission forward. Above all, we at Spin are connected by our values and #BeOrange spirit, which represents unity, purpose, passion, and creativity.

About the role

Our engineering team consists of engineers that are passionate about creating finely polished and intuitive experiences and, at the same time, obsess over performance and reliability of what we build. We challenge the status quo and strive towards finding the best way to solve problems.

We promote being a more well rounded engineer by working on different parts of the engineering stack. We also work in very small groups to keep processes and overhead low, so we have a lot of trust and accountability to perform the work required to build the best product.

  • Deliver quality software through comprehensive code reviews and automated testing.
  • Coach other software engineers on best practices.

Qualifications

  • Minimum of 12 years of relevant experience in development plus bachelor’s degree, or 8 years experience plus master’s degree.
  • Strong design and development experience with Go, Ruby on Rails or similar languages like Java or Python.
  • Prefer a college degree in mathematics, computer science, information technology, or a related field.
  • You have worked with a team of people to build an entire product end-to-end.
  • You have designed complex distributed IoT systems that can scale with demand.
  • You have designed and implemented test plans for software infrastructure.
  • You deeply understand relational database systems and schema design, preferably have experience with NoSQL solutions like Redis or Cassandra.
  • You have created and supported APIs with GraphQL, RESTful APIs or OAuth2.
  • You have good communication skills both verbally and in writing.
