Hitch is looking for a Staff Backend Engineer to help build and guide the direction of the core services that power our business. Our mission at Hitch is to create the world's most connected network of intercity travelers by leveraging the empty seats of these drivers and matching them to riders. We're creating a ride experience that's an order of magnitude better in service quality, convenience and price than buses, trains, and planes.

In this role you’ll work across all aspects of our backend, from API endpoints to dynamic pricing and matching algorithms. Some of the areas you’ll help improve include:

  • Dynamic pricing models that respond to real-time marketplace dynamics
  • Optimizing routes through intelligent rider/driver matching
  • Building features that scale and adapt across multiple markets
  • Providing observability that helps us make informed product decisions
