    • Lead the cross-functional collaboration with PMs, Engineers, Design, Data Scientists, Research, and Operations teams.
    • Mentor and support other engineers on the team. Identify and develop future leaders.
    • Advise Lime’s leadership team on key technology adoption and process improvements.

About You:

    • Having 2+ years of industry professional software development experience, and a track record of building impactful products or systems.
    • Customer obsessed. You put customers first.
    • Data driven. You have a strong data insight and rely on data to make decisions.
    • Owner’s mindset. You're a self-starter and get things across the finish line.

    • Strong influencer. You motivate and empower your team to go above and beyond.
    • Strong collaborator. You understand cross-functional strategies and involve key stakeholders in decision making.
    • Passionate. You’re passionate about Lime's mission and micromobility; you want to see cities transform to becoming people-centric and less polluted.

What We Offer:

    • Opportunity to revolutionize transportation in cities around the world with the leader in urban mobility solutions.
    • Scale with a rapidly growing organization, with significant opportunity for growth.
    • Play a role in the transformation of urban mobility and sustainability.
    • Work with a team of successful, fun and motivated people.
    • Competitive salary and benefits.
