Company presentation

This is your chance to join a talented, thoughtful and caring full-stack product team. We hire for talent, not location, and that is why you will find members of our group based remotely throughout Europe. Our team mission is quite simple; be the welcoming and caring companion for all our drivers, empowering them to build a sustainable business from day one!
Heetch embraces diversity and equal opportunity for everyone. We provide a safe and inclusive work environment. We are committed to building a team that represents a variety of backgrounds, perspectives, and skills. Because the more diverse we are, the better our work will be!
The opportunity and challenge ahead for the DAB team is huge and will help facilitate the company’s continued growth in 2021 and beyond. We are looking for a motivated Engineer, with a product mindset, to help build services and tools that empower and enable tens of thousands of Drivers to earn a living on Heetch each day.
We are the centre piece of a Drivers lifecycle and thus interact with most teams at Heetch. We aim to ship small and often throughout the duration of a Sprint and on a day-to-day basis you can expect to work in unison with product, design, mobile, frontend and the business operational teams to ensure our product is forever improving one deployment at a time.

Technological environment

  • Micro-services written in Go
  • Kafka
  • Ruby as we migrate away from legacy systems
