Mudflap is building a marketplace that connects truck drivers with fuel stops in the $800B trucking industry. We help truckers save money on diesel fuel (their #1 business expense) while providing truck stops with access to new customers. We’re growing quickly and need help building a modern, world-class platform for the trucking industry.
Mudflap’s founders have deep prior experience in the commerce, trucking, and transportation industry and the early team comes from companies like Disney, Trucker Path, Klout, Care.com, Trip.com, and Groupon.
We are looking for an exceptional senior engineer who will be an instrumental part of the team.
Our product is used by thousands of drivers at hundreds of truck stops every day across the country. The API serves requests across our iOS and Android apps used by long haul truck drivers. In addition, our web app is used on tablets at our truck stop customers.
We push ourselves to follow best practices for the betterment of our code and knowledge building among the team through technical specs, code comments, architecture diagrams etc.
We have recently ventured into building some very interesting FinTech integrations and features. These are the first of their kind in the trucking and transportation industry, and we couldn’t be more excited about building an industry-leading product. So if this is an area of interest for you, this role could be a perfect fit.
A senior/lead engineer who is hands-on and has built complex, large-scale, production-grade web apps and APIs using Ruby on Rails.
You have architected complex features and third party integrations, designed database schemas that stand the test of time, and have considerable experience building robust web applications.
You are proficient in developing in Rails, have strong fundamentals and experience with API design, and write clean, well-tested, maintainable code.
You like mentoring and guiding (and have done so previously) junior and mid-level developers with their work and like working with them to plan and design engineering solutions.
You understand that product development in startups is a fine art of balancing tradeoffs between shipping consistently without incurring too much carrying cost.
You genuinely care about your craft and are enthusiastic about bringing better practices to the teams you work on.
