Senior Ruby Backend Developer (m/f/d) – RYDES

At RYDES our vision is to build a travel engagement platform that enables you to travel smarter and more sustainably every day. We were born in the heart of Berlin to build a product for everybody who shares our passion of moving actively and loves experiencing the city and the world. It doesn’t matter if you take public transportation to get to work or university, an e-scooter to grab a coffee, a bike to meet your friends at the lake nearby or a taxi to your next party: RYDES is aiming to aggregate all different modes of transportation in one app, make them bookable and reward people for their loyalty to move around by offering discounts for their next trip. All of our team members are rebels of mobility, disrupt anything previously seen and challenge the status quo of existing mobility solutions in the market.

  • Proven ability to take backend features from spec to production autonomously
