Our new space is an earthly paradise for developers — even if we say so ourselves.

We’re super excited to tell you about our awesome new Tech Hub in Barcelona, one of the world’s most buzzing cities.

As one of the most dynamic tech companies in Europe, we want to attract world-class tech talent to make our driver apps as awesome as possible for our driver partners. And that was a big part of our decision to base our new Tech Hub in Barcelona — one of Europe’s tech capitals.

When we started as Chauffeur Privé in 2012, we never guessed that in just a few years we’d have over 300 people across 17 nationalities working with us, or that we’d have 2 million happy customers using our app to make journeys with 25,000 driver partners in 8 European cities. It’s been a real trip!

We felt the time was right to create an environment that was all about the tech. A new space where devs can roam free and unleash their brilliant talents to the fullest, just like our other workplaces. Number one: because we’re hungry to expand internationally and double the size of our tech team since rebranding as Kapten earlier this year. Number two: because we have many exciting challenges around the corner. And to meet them, we need more devs!

Our next-level workplace has been designed to give everyone the sense of freedom and fun they need to produce great ideas that really pop.

Launching on 1st September with a crack team of engineers who will hopefully reach 50-strong by the end of the year, our new hub will be a dynamic working environment like no other. It’s about creating lots of cool features and having a really positive impact on people and society in general. And it’s also a great chance for developers at all levels to learn and develop their skills.

As well as diving into a pool of great talent, our new team will also work in a Spotify-like way that organises groups into Tribes, Squads and Guilds. Think 2-week Scrum sprints and the kind of enthusiastic energy that gets new features pushed live at speed.

We’re looking for engineers who can’t wait to get stuck into building the best possible app features from day one. Like a quick and easy driver onboarding process, reporting tools and bonus systems for our driver partners, as well as optimising and refining our real-time GPS platform to match passengers and drivers. And that’s just the start!

If you’re a developer with big ambitions and an even bigger skillset, you’ll find a perfect home with us in Barcelona. We live by a ‘healthy body, healthy mind’ culture which fits right in with our location in the heart of Barcelona. There are plenty of perks and benefits for working with us (hello, free taxi rides) but most of all, it’s the sense that you’re making something special, in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, alongside some truly, awe-inspiringly talented people.

Does that sound like you? Drop us a line! http://bit.ly/2LBucBT
