At mytaxi we are building our second tech hub which is based in Barcelona. At the moment we are around 40 people, but our goal is to increase that figure to 100 by the end of 2018.

To achieve this, we need an Engineering Lead who wants to be part of our project since the very beginning and become a key trusted partner to lead and develop our team while recruiting new members.

However, you won’t do this alone as you will work in close collaboration with our development teams in Hamburg too.

As the Engineering Lead at mytaxi you will be responsible for growing a new development department of around 40 people while guiding our back-end and web developers and scrum masters.

You will also act as an important communication interface between your team and many stakeholders to make decisions that impact our development strategies.

One of our goals is to position mytaxi as the first choice for developers in Barcelona, and you will be a key partner to achieve this through your network.

Is it challenging? Of course.

Is it fun? Absolutely!

mytaxi encourages a strong team spirit and simple company culture. Our teams organize themselves in established agile working environments. People at mytaxi work flexibly and independently. Every single employee is a part of our success story and so, open communication and a fair feedback culture come naturally to us.

We are passionate problem-solvers who listen and understand before we act. By working together – with each other, customers, drivers and cities - we make things better. Besides a lot of fun and potential to make a real difference, you will have the opportunity to work with the best team in the world (we know, everybody says so, but at mytaxi it’s true)!
