Want to be part of transforming road freight – for good? Einride is showing the world a new way to move, based on the latest digital, electric and autonomous technologies. Through freight capacity as a service, we enable businesses around the world to accelerate towards their sustainability goals.

Founded in 2016, Einride became the first company in the world to deploy a cab-less autonomous electric vehicle on a public road (Sweden, 2019). In 2022, we were the first to successfully operate such a vehicle on a US public road. Today our award-winning technology has been launched across 8 countries (and counting). Our clients are some of the world’s biggest shippers, including Fortune 500 companies.

Transformation requires digital intelligence. As a Backend Developer, you will be responsible for developing the intelligent freight management platform - Saga.

Part commercial enterprise, part revolutionary movement, Einride leads the transition to a zero-emission transportation system, based on autonomous, all-electric vehicles, coordinated by an intelligent freight management platform — making the journey from A to B as efficient as possible.

You will join one of the cross-functional teams of enthusiastic, humble, and creative engineers passionate about developing innovative, scalable, user-friendly end-to-end solutions. We strive for high team autonomy and to deliver high-quality products. These joint ambitions will require you to acquire knowledge of a complex domain, challenge conventional thinking, think big, and aim to maximize environmental benefits.

The position is full-time and based in Stockholm or Gothenburg.

What you'll do

  • Use modern technologies for backend development, using Go, gRPC and Google Cloud Platform as your primary development tools. For more information about Einride’s technology stack, see our Backend Tech Radar.
  • Work in a modern organization of empowered product teams, who value fast flow of customer value, own what they build, and ship to production several times per day.
  • Understand and solve for complex system requirements rooted in real-life business-to-business use cases spanning multiple industries - such as vehicles, charging, and transportation - applying methods such as domain driven design to ensure we build the right thing.

What we're looking for

  • Are eager to work in diverse, cross-functional teams, collaborative, and entrepreneurial environments.
  • Are curious and open-minded about technologies and help in areas other than backend development. Our engineers strive towards T-shapedness.
  • Contribute to building the Einride culture, learning from fantastic colleagues, and sharing your knowledge and experience.
