Senior Software Engineer - Map(Golang)

Job description

About Snapp

Snapp is the pioneer provider of ride-hailing mobile solutions in Iran that connects smartphone owners in need of a ride to Snapp drivers who use their private cars to offer transportation services. We are ambitious, passionate, engaged, and excited about pushing the boundaries of the transportation industry to new frontiers and being the first choice of each user in Iran.

About the Team

On the surface, Snapp’s ride-hailing technology may seem simple: a user requests a ride from the app, and a driver arrives to take their destination. Behind the scenes, however, a giant infrastructure consisting of hundreds of services and terabytes of data supports each and every trip on the platform. At the heart of this infrastructure, both map data and services enable the most basic features powering our business. In our early days, we used third-party services such as Google Maps, but these services lack the customizations and localizations that our business needs. Furthermore, there are the usual risks of using third-party services outside Iran and their relatively high costs. The Maps Team at Snapp is looking for Software Engineers to join us and help create a set of new services that are customized to our business needs.

About the role

In a nutshell, you will build highly scalable services supporting the enormously growing load of Snapp. We are looking for the type of person who feels uncomfortable when a day goes by without achieving something impactful.
