Job Description

DRIVER GROWTH @HEETCH


We're a thoughtful, talented, full stack and distributed product team consisting of backend, mobile, frontend and QA engineers, as well as product managers and product designers. We're responsible for the acquisition, engagement and retention of all our drivers . Our multi-disciplined team allow us to work autonomously across the realms of our scope. Basically, this means we completely own our roadmap, and we empower each team member to contribute and influence what we work on and how.


Our mission is quite simple; Deliver Driver happiness and ensure they get the optimum experience that they deserve. Drivers use and rely on the products we build each and every day to earn a living. This is a responsibility that we hold dear and do not take for granted. 


BACKEND WITHIN DRIVER GROWTH


To put it simply; The services we support and the code we produce are critical to the business. Be it a potential driver going through our acquisition funnel, an active driver entering our marketplace or a driver viewing their earning and account details to name but a few, the impact our backend engineers have on the business as a whole is huge.
