Backend Engineer - Ride & Marketplace (Golang)

Job description

Ride & Marketplace @Heetch

The mission of the Ride & Marketplace team is quite simple: make passengers and drivers meet, and get there where they need to be. 

  • “Transportation is a serious business”

— Jason Statham as Frank Martin Our team is responsible for providing the best ride experience, by building both the smoothest ordering experience, and the platform and algorithms responsible for realtime execution and online optimization of Heetch's marketplace across all our markets (matching, dynamic pricing, ETA, heatmaps) Our impact on the business and on the experience of both passengers and drivers is unprecedented. Every ride must be reliable, efficient, and affordable, and we're building the algorithms that make that possible by optimizing supply and demand. We have high standards and high expectations on our output, we ship fast and we scale our work for all markets. To achieve this, we’re all working together amongst Product, Mobile & Backend Devs, Design, Data Analysts & Scientists, and Ops team to successfully target structural next steps, deliver, track and iterate.
