You want to build a spaceship to fly to Mars and experience the Universe? Well, we are not building spaceships yet, but we will radically change the way we travel in the future.
As we love our planet, we believe in shared mobility and the freedom to move regardless of your income or your age. By reducing the need for your own car, maximizing the usage with shared rides and supporting the next-gen of electric vehicles, we believe we can play a major role to improve the way we move in cities and make them a better, more sustainable place.
Now the decision is on you! You have a once in a lifetime chance to join this journey.
Who we are
Be part of a brand new business area focusing on new mobility solutions like e-scooter, car sharing or shuttle services. We already successfully launched our first service and plan now to scale big. During the last few months, we’ve built a team of smart engineers that can’t wait to welcome you to be part of the family. We at FREE NOW believe that we are only able to solve these amazing challenges by having technical excellence and moving faster. But maybe even more important, having more fun than every other team out there. We care for each other!
What you can expect
We work in small multifunctional and diverse teams where you'll find people from all around the world. Our main goal is to turn our business from ride-hailing to a mobility platform. We believe in the future of micro- and shared-mobility and will focus on three main areas:
- E-Scooter & E-Bikes: This includes shaping the experiences for micro-mobility, integrating with different service providers and create a seamless user experience.
- Car Sharing & Shuttle: We believe in a future where an own car is not needed anymore and traffic in the city will be significantly decreased. So whether you decide on a pooled ride or want to rent your own car we will provide the right solution for you.
- Mobility Platform: As micro and shared mobility is only the beginning we prepare our platform to be ready to easily integrate optimize different service provider.
Entering the field of new mobility is exciting and challenging at the same time. We build a platform never built before. Therefore we will make fast decisions, change the path where necessary and expect individual ideas and impulses from every engineer.
Our technology stack is mainly based on Kotlin and Java (but we firmly believe that every language is beautiful), our microservices are running on Kubernetes, we are a big fan of Docker and we monitor everything with our ELK infrastructure.
So, if you…
...love an agile and fast-paced environment
...like to write (good and clean) code
...have your own ideas on how to influence the product
...want to challenge yourself and learn new stuff every day
...make a difference
it definitely makes sense for you to apply now.
