MORE ABOUT US

We’re currently a team of 10 people -- you will be #11.



We are profitable and self-funded (no VCs or investors). We did this because we want to do what’s best for our team and customers (not investors).



We have sane working hours; we don’t work weekends, take ample time off, and work ~8 hours a day.



ABOUT YOU



You enjoy writing beautiful code. You care not just about whether the code works, but you think deeply about how well it performs, and how it will be understood by future developers.



You like shipping things. Whether it is bug fixes or features, you realize that every line of code is an opportunity to make a user’s experience better.



You ship often. You realize that the most efficient way to build a robust large application is by building it in smaller chunks and iterating upon user feedback.



You like getting feedback. Whether it is talking to real users or adding custom application metrics, you believe that getting real user data is a smart way to make decisions.



You are organized and autonomous. You don’t need someone to keep tabs on you all the time. You are able to take a goal, break it up into small tasks, and self-organize them in the best sequence to get the tasks achieved.



You are an excellent communicator. You try to make the best use of the tools available to use. You commit your code in small chunks and commit often.



OUR ENGINEERING TEAM RIGHT NOW



We are currently 6 developers. Our roles are divided based on the projects we work on.



Some of us are full stack and tend to jump between projects whereas some of us specialize in certain parts of the stack. Our stack currently looks like:


Backend: Java 8 (REST API)

Cloud: A blend of AWS and Google Cloud

Database: PostgreSQL

Frontend: ES6, TypeScript, React, and Redux

Internal: GitLab for CI/CD and issue tracking


WHAT YOU WILL DO



You will be working on our backend which is a REST API written using modern Java practices and frameworks.



This is a high impact role. We’re looking for someone to take real ownership of one or two core features within the first year. You'll own some extremely important portions of our application that serve thousands of users.



We prioritize our internal projects based on what features our customers are requesting the most. Some things that you will work on include:


Real-time data discovery – enhance and extend our real-time data discovery engine

Performance – we’d like every API call to complete within 500ms

Architecture – all core functionality should be designed in a way that it can be consumed as a standalone library

DevOps – deploy internal applications in a scalable and fault-tolerant manner

APIs – improve the depth of our integrations with 3rd party services, such as Salesforce


MUST HAVES


3+ years programming experience and 2+ years Java experience

You know how to use Java in a modern way without enterprise bloat

Excellent written and verbal communication skills

We don’t require a degree but you should have demonstrated the ability to learn new things quickly (either self-learned, from a bootcamp, or from school)


BONUS NICE-TO-HAVES


Worked at a startup or a small company before

Experience with modern DevOps practices with AWS, GCP, Docker, and such

A knack for taking a metrics-driven approach using Grafana or similar

Experience with GitLab, Google Drive API, or Salesforce.com


COMPENSATION AND PERKS


Salary: $70,000 - $90,000/year Canadian Dollars

Work remotely or from our office in Kitchener-Waterloo, or a blend of both

Four weeks paid time off

Travel spending allowance (money to spend during your vacation)

Benefits (Health, Dental, etc) through our company HSA

Catered lunches every day and snacks at the office

Laptop of your choice

    • You will own some of our large, upcoming challenges and collaborate with your team on all of these: building a streaming data reports pipeline, reworking how we index data and retrieve data to scale while controlling infrastructure costs, and significantly improving our search relevancy and customer-facing reporting capabilities. 
    • Our engineering team is over 40 people, more than half the company. As part of the search and data team you will be involved in the decisions made regarding implementation, testing, and backlog prioritization.

    • We work in using iterative software approach, communicate mostly via Slack and are committed to remote, agile development. When you are ready, you’ll create and send a pull request with tests and tag your team for review - using video and screen-sharing as needed. Your development builds can be easily tested on environments that closely match production. You’ll work autonomously for the most part and we trust you to get work done when/where you can be productive.
    • Your team performs engineering support when a question can’t be answered by our in-house support team and passes triage. We’ll get you up-to-speed with engineering support so you can help our customers and improve the product along the way.
    • Everything is secondary to the customer experience. We expect you to have a keen sense of how your code will impact the experience in terms of performance, security and usability.

    What we do?

    Optimile is a software company offering Mobility-as-a-Service. Mobility-as-a-Service has become the new way of transportation. Our aim is to build bridges between different mobility operators and end-users, so that everyone can enjoy the ultimate freedom of planning, booking and paying different transportation modes through one single gateway.

    This is our response to the shift away from personally owned means of transportation towards mobility solutions that are consumed as a service. Therefore we develop our own white-label mobility platforms and establish partnerships with all kinds of mobility operators.

    To guide mobility users during their trip, we have created our own route planner. This route planner combines different means of transport to get to your destination point. It uses a set of parameters (e.g. cost of the route, ecological footprint of the route, weather, time…) to provide you with the optimal mobility solution.

    What will your days look like?

    • Together with your enthusiastic colleagues you will develop further on our route planner. This way we can always offer the user a tailor-made mobility solution.

    • You automate the collection of operator data (from GTFS, OSM, shapefiles, NeTEx, linked connections, custom APIs ...).

    • You cast a critical eye on the algorithms used (A*, Raptor, Contraction Hierarchy, CSA ...) and help spotting opportunities.

    • You analyse data from operators and users and use this knowledge to improve results.

    • You help us scale the route planner (both in terms of number of users and geographical region).

    • You help delivering the route planner's results to the user.

    REQUIREMENTS

    • Living in Europe is a must

    • You have a Master’s degree in IT or similar experience

    • Speaking fluently English is not a problem for you

    • Working in a team doesn’t scare you

    • You are a hands-on problem solver

    • You are not afraid to try out new technologies and methods

    • Routing algorithms can trigger your interest

    • You will be available as soon as possible

    Experience and capabilities

    • You know the fundamentals of Neo4j or other graph databases

    • You have experience with Java and Java Spring

    • Knowing the ins and outs of Grade build systems and Maven repositories is a plus

    • You know your way around Python and Django (REST framework)

    • Experience with Docker and Kubernetes is a plus

    • Experience with React (Native) is a plus

    BENEFITS

    • Full-time permanent role, based remotely

    • Competitive salary

    • Fast growing international company

    • A great, supportive team to work with

    • The possibility to develop an innovative product in a new market within an international context
