What you’ll do:
  • As a Senior Backend Engineer on our Telematics team you will help us continue to build out and improve our Telematics platform to serve the needs of our Fleet Operations, Members and Member Services team.
  • At Zipcar we use our own 4G connected device to manage our fleet of cars and allow for 24/7 on-demand access to our fleet of cars by our members. You will work with the Telematics team to improve this experience working with firmware engineering, smartphone app developers and other backend folks.
  • Our Telematics platform has been around for over a decade, going all the way back to the 2G network. The Telematics team at Zipcar takes pride in the ownership of this extremely important feature of the Zipcar self-service experience.
Responsibilities:
  • Own the backend interface for our telemetry and ride logic data that serves several different business use cases.
  • Work with the telematics firmware engineers to develop protocol enhancements for communication between the server and the vehicle.
  • Develop algorithms to help process telemetry data collected by the cars.
  • Work alongside iOS and Android developers for implementing self-service car rental logic.
  • Ensure system stability and maximize uptime so we are always in touch with our cars.
  • Work with other engineers on the team to develop other innovative solutions to minimize member issues with cars.
  • Create world-class APIs for web, mobile, and external teams.
  • Work collaboratively with product designers, product managers and quality engineers to deliver innovative new solutions and applications for a market leader in the mobility space.
Who you are:
  • 5+ years of experience in developing software interfaces through collaboration with other developers
  • Experience with web services written in Java languages or similar
  • Experience with databases such as PostgresSQL, MongoDB, or similar
  • Experience with Restful APIs, Messaging Systems (e.g. RabbitMQ), and Microservice Architectures
  • Experience working with network protocols and/or remote devices a plus
  • Experience with Internet of Things (IoT) is a plus
What you’ll love about being a Zipster:
  • Building a great brand, that you can see on the street and that’s changing the world.
  • Collaborating with a team of helpful, passionate and technically strong software developers.
  • Being part of a company that is big enough that we can achieve big things together, but small enough that you can make your mark.
  • Our entrepreneurial spirit and a dynamic, fun and flexible work environment.

  • Competitive Medical, Dental, Vision, Life and Disability Insurance and other voluntary benefits through our parent company, Avis Budget Group
  • Generous paid time off, including holidays, vacation, personal, sick, volunteer and parental leave options
