Hiring exceptional back-end talent is mission-critical for TAUR. You will design, build and manage TAUR’s fundamental software infrastructure, including servers, databases and APIs. You’ll help keep our data secure and compliant with regulations. And you’ll help manage contractors.

Being a hardware company, any experience you have with IoT is a massive bonus point, as the systems you manage will interface regularly with our embedded systems/apps. You will need to have a broad understanding of the product firmware at least, if not understanding of the code itself.

In addition, you’ll be heavily involved in the development and deployment of our mobile apps (Android and iOS) and any web services that underpin our marketing/support teams. Of course your back-end experience will be invaluable here but any front-end ability is clearly an asset too.

In order of importance we’re looking for:

  • 6+ years back-end software expertise: servers, databases and APIs. Ability to develop scalable systems that add significant value to TAUR.
  • Experienced software developer, highly knowledgeable about advantages/drawbacks of different software stacks
  • Experience or strong interest in embedded programming and IoT
  • Proficient in managing code repositories, version control systems, working in teams
  • iOS and Android app development experience
  • Web development experience
  • Knowledge of data warehousing, reporting, dashboards, analytics
  • Experience hiring and managing contractors and/or direct reports

To succeed in this role you’ll need to be:

  • Willing to contribute to a great work culture
  • Highly proactive
  • A true self-starter
  • An excellent communicator and team-worker
  • Able to break down business requirements and discuss – at a strategic high level as well as zoomed-in on low level detail
  • Appreciation of great design and UX
  • Hardworking and ambitious
  • Passionate about TAUR's goals and genuinely user-obsessed

Package: highly competitive

Reporting to: CEO

Location: London strongly preferred


About TAUR

Consumers are looking for transportation that’s quick, effortless and clean – especially from brands that care. Since early 2019, TAUR has been working to produce a truly roadworthy electric scooter, and not just one that’s great to ride but for the entire lifestyle that goes with owning one. Our recent Kickstarter campaign ($335k) was backed by hundreds of people – with thousands more desperate for a test ride next year.

Our exceptional team are from brands like Tesla, Apple, Uniwheel, Ford and British Airways, and we’re working full-throttle to deliver on our goals. We’re looking for more exceptional, multi-talented people who want a real challenge. We’ve just closed a highly successful seed round, and we’re aiming for a Series A in 2021. If this sounds like fun let's talk :)
