Offer by moovel Group GmbH (REACH NOW)







Backend Engineer (f/m/d) Mobility Service Provider Squad


We are David, Simon, Anton, Mark, Delia, Patrick, Abdulkadir, Gabriel and Hendrik from the Mobility Service Provider squad. As an interdisciplinary team we focus on integrating mobility service providers for car- sharing, bike-sharing and ride-hailing such as car2go or mytaxi into our urban mobility platform. We care greatly about quality, scalability, ease of use and a great user experience. We’re looking for a backend- focused engineer to join our squad.


Daimler AG and BMW Group are bundling their mobility services in the areas of Carsharing, Ride-Hailing, Parking, Charging and Multimodal Platforms, and create a new global player comprising of five joint ventures. moovel Group is joining forces with ReachNow - and becomes REACH NOW. Our vision is a planet without traffic jams. Our mission is to transform cities by providing the most convenient and sustainable mobility solutions. We create outstanding products with technical excellence, an agile mindset, an open feedback and failure culture and fun at work. moovel is part of a large global corporation, but at the heart of it we still are a start-up. We act as a partner for cities, transport networks and mobility service providers with the goal of making cities smarter and creating an operating system for urban mobility that provides access to appropriate mobility options in urban areas and paves the way for the future with autonomous vehicles. Currently, 250 employees work in small creative teams in Germany and the US at four locations - Hamburg, Berlin, Stuttgart and Portland.


We are building services that provide a fully fledged feature set of urban mobility service providers. Our backend enables the moovel (REACH NOW) mobility app to find nearby mobility options like car or bike-sharing as well as ride-hailing services. It also allows booking functionality and handles payment.

Our services interact with moovel’s (REACH NOW) mobility platform as well as external APIs. Many of our services are also exposed to external partners, so they have to be well documented, stable and easy to use. Implementing new services in a consistent way is also very important to us.
