Brooklyn-based Dollaride empowers every-day people to overcome the challenges of living in transit deserts by using "dollar vans." The company's mission is to increase mobility in underserved communities by leveraging informal transit networks. Our product makes NYC's private network of van drivers accessible to more passengers in neighborhoods that struggle with weak public transit options.

At Dollaride, we're building a ride-sharing platform (mobile-first) that will allow drivers, passengers, and operators (the dispatcher) to experience a reliable commuter van service.

Commuter vans (aka "dollar vans") represent a popular, yet informal transportation network in NYC. Our technology simplifies how anyone can find a "dollar van" and pay their fare right from their mobile phone.

We're looking for a DevOps Engineer to lead the development of our API, Systems infrastructure, AWS reconfiguration, maintenance, and optimization, as well as CI/CD processes. As an engineering leader, you'll be responsible for designing and supporting the strategy that makes product development reliable and deployment frequent & predictable. Naturally, you'll also work on mission-critical projects that require the implementation of API-based 3rd party tools and DevOps services.

You'll immediately have the opportunity to participate in technical decision-making, helping to advance our technology stack, by adding automation and frameworks whenever it's pragmatic and appropriate.

As an engineer, you'll join our growing remote tech team and work side-by-side with our technical founder, and Head of Product.

What to expect:
- short, daily standup meetings
- open team-wide communications in Slack
- bi-weekly product demos & feedback sessions
- agile software development methodology (Scrum)
- Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment

Technologies and platforms we're using:
- Node.js
- React Native & React.js
- PostgreSQL
- Amazon Web Services (ECS, EC2, Elastic Beanstalk)
- iOS & Android

Preferred candidates would have:
- experience with containerization (i.e. Docker, Kubernetes)
- experience AWS ECS, EC2, Elastic Beanstalk
- experience with node.js, React, React-Native is a plus
- experience with micro-services, API design and architecture
- experience with configuration automation platforms (ie. Terraform, Ansible)
- familiarity with mobile testing platforms (i.e. Testflight, Browserstack, etc)

- 5+ years of programming experience
- significant experience with software architecture, API design
- significant experience optimizing AWS and system infrastructure
- good communication skills (proficient in English)
- proficient with back-end JS frameworks (Node.js preferred)
- reliable and responsible
- necessary hardware: smartphone (iOS and/or Android phone)
- professional experience using Git
- team-oriented
- ability to learn quickly and work independently

This is a long-term contract.
