Descripción de la oferta

Who we are?

Motorcycle taxis are immensely popular and serve as the lifeblood of many
cities in Africa, but they are extremely unsafe and disorganized. At the
click of a button, SafeBoda provides a safe, more convenient, mobile-first
transportation platform for Africa’s booming young population. Based in
Kampala & Nairobi, we are a Series-A funded fast growing ride-hailing
platform that is having huge impact for millions in East Africa.
In 2016, we launched our platform on Heroku with a MongoDB, PHP backend
with front ends on web, iOS, and Android. In 2018, our daily ride numbers
increased 30x. We are now in the process of raising Series B financing and
are going to use it to modernize the engineering platform and upgrade our
backend technology operations.
We have a passionate and highly engaged team based mainly in East Africa
and we are looking to quickly grow the Barcelona team to speed-up the
growth and make sure we can build exciting verticals on the SafeBoda
platform. We're searching for engineers who are looking for the opportunity
to work for an international company, as well as the challenge of being an
early member of our Barcelona team.

Our stack

We are currently migrating our legacy back-end application from PHP to
Elixir and breaking the monolith into Elixir umbrella apps. We use Postgres
as our main database but use MongoDb for some parts of the application. We
cache heavily with Redis. Our web applications are built with Angular but
we're slowly moving to Vue.Js. Kotlin and Swift are the language of choice
for our Android and iOS apps respectively.
