About the role

Who are we looking for?

We are searching for early engineers to join our team. In this role, you will contribute to both the external interfaces used by our customers and the internal services that form the foundation of our API platform. Working on a platform dedicated to supporting the millions of connected trucks on the road, you will be challenged with designing for massive amounts of data, scaling up to petabytes. You will collaborate with me, Connor, to design and develop new features with a focus on quality and scalability.


  • Lead key architecture decisions for the platform.
  • Design clear and robust APIs for customers to consume.
  • Lead the scoping and development of new integrations.
  • Produce high-quality, production-ready, readable, and maintainable code.
  • Unblock and support team members and customers.


  • 6+ years of back-end software engineering experience.
  • Experience with TypeScript and AWS services.
  • Pragmatic focus on building the right solution for customers.
  • Comfortable jumping around the stack and wearing different hats
  • Preferred, but not required: experience designing serverless architectures.

Tech Stack

  • AWS serverless architecture: Lambda, DynamoDB, S3, SQS, EventBridge and Step Functions.
  • End-to-end TypeScript: SST framework, React and Tailwind.
  • Infrastructure as Code: SST and CDK. +CI/CD: GitHub Actions and SEED.


  • Strong compensation and equity packages
  • Top-tier medical benefits as well as a healthcare spending account
  • Additional personal spending account for activities like yoga, gym, or rock climbing
