Engineering @ Scoop

Few companies get to face such diverse technical challenges as Scoop, and we’ve built a team of people excited to face these challenges together while investing in each others’ growth.

Scoop’s engineering team may move bits and pixels, but we also put real, live human beings in cars together. We’re touching problems academics have written about for years, and have data that no other company has ever collected.

But Scoop knows engineering is not a lone discipline. We’re a small team with varied backgrounds: big companies, VC-backed startups, bootcamps, academia. We like to build together, and we like to learn together. Our entire team and process are built around helping you grow and be successful. And we’d love to tell you more about the impact you could have at Scoop.


In this role, you will:
* Build the platform on which Scoop engineers create and release applications
* Apply grit and inventiveness, both in writing new software and deploying open-source tools like Kubernetes
* Contribute to scaling build, test, and deployment pipelines
* Ensure Scoop is working well for our carpoolers with monitoring and observability tools

You should:
* Know the power (and pain points) of cloud providers like AWS
* Have participated in shipping software in a service-oriented architecture
* Have experience in leading technical projects in a collaborative environment
* Have experience operating with managing container platforms like Docker deployments in a multi-service environment, e.g. Kubernetes, Mesos, ECS etc.
* Know how to design a network and be familiar with the inner workings of the Linux kernel and memory management




Life @ Scoop

Founded in 2015 and based in downtown SF, our team mixes technology and elbow grease every day, with one statistic in our crosshairs: 80% of Americans drive alone to work. At Scoop, we envision a world where commuters feel empowered — starting with a choice to make their commute a meaningful part of their day. We embody that same spirit within our own culture, empowering every team member to make this the most meaningful experience of their career.

Walk into Scoop and you’ll find a furry, tail-wagging welcoming committee. In many ways these fluffy faces exemplify the energy that flows through our office. They are a reminder that while we’re focused and driven, we shouldn’t take ourselves too seriously. They also help bridge the gap between our homes and our workplace, just like a Scoop carpool.

The atmosphere overall is dynamic and unique. It’s influenced by our backgrounds at successful startups, big tech companies, and premier consulting firms — blended and crafted into what feels natural and right for this company. It plays out in our balance of scrappy and strategic, frameworks and fast thinking.

At Scoop, we’re all united by our desire to change the way people get to work — and committed to enjoying the journey together along the way.
