About the Team
On the surface, Snapp’s ride-hailing technology may seem simple: a user requests a ride from the app, and a driver arrives to take their destination. Behind the scenes, however, a giant infrastructure consisting of hundreds of services and terabytes of data supports each and every trip on the platform. At the heart of this infrastructure, both map data and services enable the most basic features of powering our business. In our early days, we used third-party services such as Google Maps, but these services lack the customizations and localizations that our business needs. Furthermore, there are the usual risks of using third-party services outside Iran and their relatively high costs. The Maps Team at Snapp is looking for Software Engineer to join us and help create a set of new services that are customized to our business needs.
About the role
Map’s software engineers are a group of people who directly impact the daily lives of more than a million users in Iran. As a Software Engineer, you are the architect, designer, and coder of your project. You will struggle with lots of open source projects and contribute back when you can. In addition, you work closely with our engineers to ensure system consistency and improve the user experience. In a nutshell, you will build highly scalable services supporting the enormously growing load of Snapp. We are looking for the type of person who feels uncomfortable when a day goes by without achieving something impactful. Someone who is driven to get things done and views obstacles as an exciting challenge that demands a creative solution.
