About Starship Technologies

Starship Technologies builds self-driving local delivery robots.

Job Description

Starship Technologies is revolutionizing deliveries with autonomous robots. The robots are designed to deliver food,  groceries, and packages across college campuses and neighbourhoods in minutes. Starship delivery robots have completed over 1 million autonomous deliveries to date, traveled over 1m miles, crossed over 15 million roads and met millions of people in cities around the world. Every day our delivery robots are completing thousands of autonomous deliveries across tens of cities and 5 countries around the world. We’re hitting records on an almost weekly basis. Now is a very exciting time to join as we grow rapidly around the world!
Servers are where much of the magic happens. Connecting the robots to the servers and providing low-latency video feeds, routing them to customers over the most optimal paths, solving escalations from robots, third party partners and mapping. Also working with telemetry to ensure robots are always at their full health and we always know what’s going on first. Handling robots is a broad challenge – one that combines near real-time systems and more traditional entity management, reliable network connectivity and offline prediction of faults, route optimization and customer delivery flows… and a lot more.

In this role you will be given the opportunity to:

    • Develop and enhance time critical systems using NodeJS and GoLang (both Javascript and Typescript) and maybe even some Elixir or Rust
    • Participate in architectural decisions of our systems
    • Respond to critical issues if they arise and fix them quickly
    • Research for best approaches on how to make our systems and tools better

Does this seem interesting? We would love to hear from you, if you have the following qualities:

      • Strong modern software engineering skills with expertise in at least one of the following programming languages such as NodeJS (Javascript and/or Typescript), GoLang, Elixir, etc
      • Understanding distributed system architecture, being able to echo in when team is doing some decisions
      • Good communication skills and able to switch context in reasonable way
      • Experience in developing highly-scalable distributed systems
      • E-commerce experience is a plus
We are looking for someone who is tech-savvy, team player and with a can-do attitude. You should be a high-achiever and a quick learner. Excellent communication and problem solving skills are a must.

We will consider it as a positive for your application if you have:

    • Experience in near real-time system development
    • Experience from fast growing startups
    • End-to-end software product ownership

Here are some of the reasons why you should consider joining us:

      • You will have an opportunity to work with highly-scalable distributed systems
      • We work as one team and everyone has the possibility to adjust how we work
      • We have a startup-style environment, bringing considerable opportunity to grow within the company
      • The main thing: we at Starship are working on building world-changing technology to disrupt the delivery industry.
If this seems like something you would like to be part of, we’d love to hear from you! Join us and be a part of the Future of Delivery, today.
