we are Sudip, Ali, Paul and Aram from the routing squad. Our job is to create and enable routing solutions for our products and customers. We are looking for a backend-focused engineer to join our great squad. The main programming languages we use are Java 8, Python and Javascript ES6, but we believe that continuous learning is essential in an ever-changing and fast-paced technological environment.

First a quick look at us

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 (REACH NOW) 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 (REACH NOW) is part of two large global corporations, 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, 300 employees work in small creative teams in Germany and the US at four locations - Hamburg, Berlin, Stuttgart and Portland.


Teams at moovel (REACH NOW) choose the tools they regard as the best fit for their problems, at their discretion. Hence the technology stack is rather diverse. We employ a microservice backend architecture based on Docker and AWS. Cloud Services are leveraged wherever they help us to focus on our task. We practice Continuous Delivery and value DevOps culture (you build it, you run it).
  • You design, implement, scale and monitor our routing backend which provides vehicle, public transport and intermodal directions for our mobility apps and platform
  • You implement routing and optimization algorithms in Java
  • You design and provide APIs around our routing services
  • You are involved in building infrastructure and tooling for importing data into our routing engine
  • You perform analysis to enable data driven decisions
  • You collaborate with cross-functional teams to define, design and ship new features


You should have experience in writing, maintaining & debugging Java/Python code and should be concerned about clean, high quality and maintainable code. Graph theory, routing algorithms or vehicle routing problems (VRP) knowledge are nice to have but not necessary, if that is something you always wanted to learn more about and master. Some exposure to service based architectures would be useful. Since we are working in a rapidly evolving environment you should be open to pick up new languages, tools and frameworks. Furthermore, we are working with Amazon Web Services so it would be good if you are familiar with cloud computing.
As it is our corporate language, you should have good writing and verbal communication skills in English.

  • Choose your own hardware
  • Working with newest technologies & microservices
  • Be part of an interdisciplinary team of experts
  • Working on products with a high impact on society
  • International teams
  • Flexible working hours
  • Free breakfast, good coffee & fresh fruits
  • Monthly mobility budget
