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 growing team from a variety of backgrounds both traditional and non-traditional. 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:
* Own, architect, and implement high quality backend web services using Node.js and PostgreSQL
* Contribute to features and expand our offerings to improve carpoolers' experiences
* Participate in the full software development lifecycle (e.g. Planning, Analysis, Design, Implementation, Testing, and Maintenance)
* Collaborate across multiple teams to help define, scope, and implement high quality features
* Practice test-driven development

You should:
* Have experience with API development
* Have experience with modern JavaScript frameworks
* Have experience with Cloud based application engineering
* Have experience in designing and leading features from ideation to production
* Be excited and effective about collaborating and communicating with different stakeholders
* Be able to mentor and learn from others
* Computer Science degree, or equivalent experience

You might:
* Be passionate about designing and writing high quality code
* Have curiosity and desire for continuous improvement both personally and engineering wide

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.
