Do you want to change the world? At Cabify, that’s what we’re doing. We aim to make cities better places to live by improving mobility for the people living in them, connecting riders to drivers, providing mobility alternatives such as scooters and mopeds and many others to come, all at the touch of a button. Maybe one day cities will be places where nobody needs a private car. But we’ve still got a long way to go… Fancy joining us?

Our Product & Engineering teams are both based in Madrid, with a strong remote culture, and include an eclectic bunch of awesome people from different backgrounds like Ruby, Go, Elixir, JavaScript, and Python.

Right now, we’re working on some greenfield projects with a solid set of product ideas lined up ready for innovative engineers to tackle. And of course, we have big plans to take over the taxi app service industry!

Site Reliability Engineers at Cabify work on improving all aspects of our platform and have an impact across the whole organisation. They are a blend of systems engineers and software developers who solve scalability issues with software and implement the best production engineering and security practices.

 

As a Site Reliability Engineer, you will be:

  • Evolving our infrastructure platform building self-service components that will be used by all the engineering team and by millions of users around the world.
  • Working closely with our Product and Infrastructure teams to architecture and develop world-class infrastructure components.
  • Designing and implementing tooling to improve the availability, scalability, observability and latency of our services, which are used by internal customers to deploy and operate their services.
  • Increasing reliability awareness with other teams, helping with the adoption of reliability principles and reviewing observability implementations or software architectures.
  • Defining SLIs, SLOs and SLAs as part of the services' lifecycle.
  • Sharing an on-call schedule for the platform services you own.
  • Solving problems in our highly available platform together with other teams, then build automations to prevent incidents from happening again.
  • Participating in our recruiting process to help grow our engineering team.

 

You may be a fit for this role if you:

  • Think Unix, you know the networking stack, the OSI model, containers (and schedulers), and you know your way around monitoring, logging and the CAP theorem (bonus!).
  • Have strong programming skills in at least one language, and know your way around a few more or can learn them if the opportunity arises.
  • Automate yourself out of everything by nature, making machines do the toil.
  • Communicate effectively and asynchronously. 
  • Care about the things that affect the company, your team, and yourself.
  • Embrace diversity and humbleness (and a bit of trolling).
  • Prefer taking iterative action over waiting for things to happen or to be perfect.
  • Strongly favor simplicity over complexity. Ie, adhering to the KISS principle.
  • Have a sense for identifying, exploiting and elevating bottlenecks.
  • Are not afraid of expressing yourself in English. We aren't expecting you to have the Queen's accent, but you'll be part of an international team and we communicate in English, so you should be comfortable with that.
  • Enjoy herding cats and shaving yaks. Ie, being a great influence to other product teams and teaching them best practices. As well as analyzing and simplifying our setup.

 

 

Projects you could work on:

  • Helping us iterate on and improve our kubernetes setup (AWS EKS).
  • Iterate our networking layer to implement network policies, service mesh, and more…
  • Evolving our time-series monitoring platform (Cortex), in order to provide a first-class service to all of our engineering teams.
  • Help grow our adoption of distributed tracing (OTLP + Tempo), with the goal of providing request latency observability across microservices (as a service).
  • Scaling our ever-growing logging platform (Loki) to keep up with the business demands.
  • Maintaining our company-wide code repository and continuous integration solution (gitlab)

Whatever your decision, it will not be considered in the hiring process or thereafter. Any information that you do provide will be recorded and maintained in a confidential file.

As set forth in Cabify’s Equal Employment Opportunity policy, we do not discriminate on the basis of any protected group status under any applicable law.

Race & Ethnicity Definitions

If you believe you belong to any of the categories of protected veterans listed below, please indicate by making the appropriate selection. As a government contractor subject to the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Assistance Act (VEVRAA), we request this information in order to measure the effectiveness of the outreach and positive recruitment efforts we undertake pursuant to VEVRAA. Classification of protected categories is as follows:

A "disabled veteran" is one of the following: a veteran of the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service who is entitled to compensation (or who but for the receipt of military retired pay would be entitled to compensation) under laws administered by the Secretary of Veterans Affairs; or a person who was discharged or released from active duty because of a service-connected disability.

A "recently separated veteran" means any veteran during the three-year period beginning on the date of such veteran's discharge or release from active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval, or air service.

An "active duty wartime or campaign badge veteran" means a veteran who served on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service during a war, or in a campaign or expedition for which a campaign badge has been authorized under the laws administered by the Department of Defense.

An "Armed forces service medal veteran" means a veteran who, while serving on active duty in the U.S. military, ground, naval or air service, participated in a United States military operation for which an Armed Forces service medal was awarded pursuant to Executive Order 12985.


Voluntary Self-Identification of Disability

Form CC-305
Page 1 of 1
OMB Control Number 1250-0005
Expires 04/30/2026

Why are you being asked to complete this form?

We are a federal contractor or subcontractor. The law requires us to provide equal employment opportunity to qualified people with disabilities. We have a goal of having at least 7% of our workers as people with disabilities. The law says we must measure our progress towards this goal. To do this, we must ask applicants and employees if they have a disability or have ever had one. People can become disabled, so we need to ask this question at least every five years.

Completing this form is voluntary, and we hope that you will choose to do so. Your answer is confidential. No one who makes hiring decisions will see it. Your decision to complete the form and your answer will not harm you in any way. If you want to learn more about the law or this form, visit the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) website at www.dol.gov/ofccp.
