Along the way, you will also partner closely with some of the tech sector’s most influential and successful investors, building a portfolio of intersecting business verticals in technology, real estate and mobility services.

Position Overview and Responsibilities

This position reports to the CTO.

The company is seeking a Sr. Engineer to lead the design and implementation of its mobility platform. As one of the early-stage members of the Engineering team, you will have the opportunity to build systems from the ground-up. Even though we are partial to languages that run on the JVM, we want an Engineer who is not constrained by programming languages, development paradigms and frameworks. Your responsibilities won’t be limited to just designing and implementing the code. You will also have a big role to play in defining the direction of our product. Our goal is to build an inclusive culture where everyone has a voice and you will play a key role in building and maintaining this culture.

Key Responsibilities
  • Architect, implement and maintain the services that make up the Metropolis mobility platform.
  • Be a key part of the entire development lifecycle, including ideation and identifying requirements.
  • Moderate technical discussions, evaluate new techniques and ensure our platform is constantly evolving and improving.
  • Leverage best practices in automation testing and deployment to enable rapid iteration and launch of new features.
  • Help build a culture where bugs and mistakes in Production are treated as opportunities to improve the platform via testing and refactoring.
  • Be a key part of hiring the rest of the engineers and setting the culture with Metropolis Engineering.
  • Ensure that the systems we build are highly available and scalable.
  • Work directly with our partners and build solutions that seamlessly integrate their products with the Metropolis platform.
Requirements and Qualifications
  • MS or BS in Computer Science or equivalent work experience.
  • 7+ years of experience as a hands-on Engineer, with experience in high volume consumer facing applications.
  • Hands-on experience with Scala, Java or other languages that run on the JVM is preferred but an excellent understanding of software engineering principles is more important than JVM experience.
  • Proven experience building distributed systems using SOA, microservices and related technologies.
  • Experience with large scale data processing.
  • Experience working in an agile development environment.
  • Hands-on experience with CI/CD tools and testing methodologies like BDD or TDD.
  • Strong experience with database technologies, including NoSQL data stores.
  • Strong experience with event driven architectures and related technologies.
  • Demonstrated ability to attract and hire the best engineers.
  • Hands-on experience with container technologies and infrastructure as code techniques would be a plus.

An Insider's view of Metropolis

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Building a network of technology-enabled real estate. We use machine vision, IoT, apps, and distributed computing to blur the boundary of the physical and digital world. Every day is a challenge and a ton of fun.

Bryant

Director of Product

What makes someone successful on your team?

The engineers that are successful on our team know how to focus on not only the technical implementation but also have the ability to deliver results that match the product vision and business needs. Ultimately the more the individual contributes to team success the more they will achieve individual success.

Jamie

Principal Engineer

What is your vision for the company?

If you believe that at some point there will be a critical mass of vehicles on the road that are autonomous, there needs to be tech-enabled infrastructure for that ecosystem to function. We want to transform what has always been a narrowly defined parking business into a mobility company that powers every component of the mobility ecosystem.

Courtney

Co-Founder & Head of Partnerships

What’s the vibe like in the office?

Our offices are pretty cool -- we have a relaxation room with turf and couches, great snacks and coffee, a monthly “happy hour” where we go to new places like rooftop restaurants and VR arcades to have fun and connect.
