Software Engineer

SideCar San Francisco, CA

Sidecar's engineering team is changing transportation as you know it. We are on the front lines of one of tech's breakout models, and we're looking for high-caliber developers to help us build the future of ridesharing. We believe in good working relationships, refined but flexible processes, flat authority structures, and innovation.

You will work with the rest of the team on all aspects of our backend, potentially touching everything from server management to architecture, to debugging and building. We put a lot of faith in each of our engineers, and everyone on the team handles mission-critical projects on a regular basis.

We're building our new infrastructure in Python using the Pyramid framework, but we also maintain legacy code in PHP Codeigniter and Express.js. Experience with these (especially Python) is a big plus

Our office is located in downtown San Francisco and is full of smart, hard-working people collaborating to bring ride-sharing to everyone… and having a great time along the way!
