The Drivit Team


Position for Backend Engineer Check Drivit on Linkedin

Our Startup

At Drivit we use cutting-edge technology and data to make roads safer, help drivers be more efficient, and to fix car insurance, making it smarter, friendlier and fairer for all.

Our tech, which can be easily integrated into any smartphone app, automatically detects, records and accurately analyses car trips – no hardware required besides the user smartphone - allowing companies (e.g. insurers, shared-mobility providers, fleets) to develop innovative and high-quality mobility services.

We are currently looking for a talented backend engineer eager to develop technology that not only enables the future of mobility, but that can bring us a step closer to a more sustainable and safer world.

Your Role

As a backend engineer, you will work closely with our engineering team to develop and optimize our current services and to design and implement new features that our clients love and trust.

Our backend is a fundamental pillar in our solution as it uses advanced digital signal processing and machine learning to process high-frequency sensor and context data in order to generate a precise and comprehensive driving behavior dataset. You will help us ensure we offer our services at the highest standard and in solving tough problems that can truly push our solution forward.

You’ll report directly to the founders and have a clear path to a leadership role in our startup.
