Fullstack Engineering Manager - Sustainability squad at Getaround | Powderkeg

Location: Oslo

Employment Type: Full-time

Team: Software Engineering

We believe in a world where all cars are shared. Carsharing empowers people to get going in a smarter, easier way, while also having a positive impact on the environment and making cities more liveable. It’s this vision that propels us forward and inspires us to think even bigger.

Getaround (formerly Nabobil) is the world's leading carsharing platform with a community of more than 5 million users sharing over 11,000 connected cars across 7 countries.

Our team is collaborative, positive, curious, and engaged. We think fast, laugh often, and are looking for like-minded people to join us in our mission to disrupt car ownership and make cities better.

The Sustainability team:

  • The sustainability team is a new effort with a mission to maximize the positive impact of carsharing on climate and cities. The first objective will be to make the usage of EVs as convenient and reliable as Gas cars on the platform.
  • The team is composed of a Product Manager, a backend developer, 2 mobile developers, and a data analyst. Our objective is to find a Full-Stack Engineer that will work on these objectives as well as manage the backend developer and grow the team from 1 to at least 2-3 this year.

What you will bring to the team:

  • Getaround handles thousands of rentals a day and making a non-virtual experience frictionless is a big challenge. For that, we're looking for rigorous people with a strong hacker mindset who cherish creating highly reliable software in a collaborative and inclusive environment.
  • As a manager, you also have good communication skills, have a product mindset, are benevolent, and genuinely want to make your team grow.

What you will work on:

  • Manage a team of engineers
  • Help the team plan, execute and ship releases while respecting timelines and high-quality development, working closely with the product and leadership teams
  • Coach and mentor engineers, so they excel at their work and grow
  • Build new product features from start to finish: through conception, research, documentation, maintenance, and polish.
  • Work on key initiatives to keep our system elegant and productivity high.
  • Build and improve processes and internal tools with simplicity and productivity in mind.
  • Gain ownership on a part of the codebase, and contribute to growing it in accordance with our standards and good practices
  • Review code from your peers.
  • Use and contribute to our in-house design system.
  • Collaborate as a team on product vision and software design decisions.

What skills we are looking for:

  • 5+ years of experience as a developer
  • Shipped and maintained code in production
  • Good knowledge of Ruby and Rails.
  • Experience with a relational database such as MySQL or PostgreSQL
  • Meticulous mindset but you also understand that software engineering is about making trade-offs, balancing business and technical needs
  • Good communication skills, comfortable working in a team, ability to work with non-technical colleagues
  • Previous management experience is appreciated but we also accept Junior managers (we’ll train you if needed)
  • Comfortable with the English language (written and spoken)

We strongly encourage you to apply even if you don't feel you match 100% of the job specifications!

Our Tech Stack:

  • Ruby on Rails 6 with Ruby 2.7
  • TypeScript & React with Webpack, Yarn, Babel
  • Continuous integration with Docker and CircleCI to push to production multiple times a day
  • MySQL, Redis, Snowflake
  • A strong internal design system
  • Monitoring dashboards built with New Relic and the TIG stack (Telegraf, Influxdb, Grafana)

Our product is available in the US, France, Norway, Germany, the UK, Spain, Belgium, and Austria. We offer one of the most dynamic and diverse company cultures in town
  • The opportunity to have a positive impact on climate change. Cars are responsible for 17% of carbon emissions. In France, an independent study has shown that each connected car shared on Getaround replaces more than 4 self-owned cars.
