We are tech experts from all over the world, united by one thing above all: the passion for our products that make life in cities easier for millions of people. Small, agile, autonomous and multidisciplinary teams each take responsibility for their own part of the Mobimeo ecosystem.
Mobile and backend developers, UX designers, quality assurance (QA) and product managers work closely with our business teams to develop ideas, rapidly build prototypes and bring products to market. We rely on stable, proven technologies such as Scala and Kubernetes, as well as technology partners such as AWS. We are continuously expanding our toolset with new technologies to help us solve challenges even faster. For example, we use Kotlin for a growing portion of our backend services and TensorFlow™ for machine learning. And when it comes to technical implementation, we fulfil the highest data protection requirements.
With each new technology and method we adopt, the learning curve of our teams rises higher. We support every one of our employees in mastering new tools quickly to boost their effectiveness. “Commit on day one” is one of our mantras for onboarding new software developers.
Workflow, not technologies
As we continue to develop our platform, we focus on improving our processes rather than tackling each new requirement with the technologies we already have. We try to find the right tool for each job, without limiting ourselves too much.
Simple, modular, composable
The Unix philosophy is widely known for preaching the virtues of simple, modular and composable software. Simplicity is an art – and we are passionate about it.
Automation through codification
Automation is the only way to manage multiple systems with minimal effort. Don’t do something twice; automate it.
Versioning through codification
Codification is the conviction that all processes in a software project should be written, stored and versioned as code. That’s why we use tools like Terraform to codify our infrastructure and to write ETL (Extract, Transform, Load) jobs.
Being pragmatic and smart
We follow the “Scout rule”: Leave your code better than you found it.
"My colleagues and I develop a web application to handle customer service requests."
Sustainable mobility has been my focus since university. I've always enjoyed being involved in projects that contribute to making cities cleaner, greener and create more friendly streets for people. To me, working in an urban mobility company like Mobimeo is one way to achieve this goal and I'm glad to make a difference.
I am part of the Web Accounts and Transactions (WAT) team. My colleagues and I develop a web application to handle customer service requests effectively to make the users of our platform happy.
I am glad that Mobimeo offers me so much flexibility to not only work on different topics but also with different teams. I get the support I need to try out various things and to find my path.
» I make sure that our navigation system delivers high-quality information in real time. «
Cities are so crowded that commuting from A to B is a real challenge for the residents. That’s what I want to change through my work at Mobimeo.
As a QA developer at Mobimeo, I ensure that our public transport navigation system delivers key information to users in high quality and in real time. I also continuously check the current status of every feature implemented in our mobile apps. One of my biggest challenges is to ensure that our mobile apps are delivered to the app stores on time. To do this, I have to carry out thorough testing processes at an early stage. To improve our products, it’s also crucial that I work with my team on a daily basis to avoid critical or unexpected issues, so our product meets the agreed standards and remains user-friendly.
» At Mobimeo, I don’t have to worry about code no longer being up to date. «
At Mobimeo, we work with the latest technologies and can also suggest new ways to solve problems. When we talk about giving teams freedom here, we really mean it. I have suggested new tools for solving a specific problem in the past. We discussed it briefly as a team and then got straight down to work. All the features we develop are the result of teamwork. Our team spirit is the most crucial reason for our success.
We are regularly out and about in the city ourselves, testing our apps. Everyone at the company uses them, exchanges ideas about them, discusses potential improvements and new ideas. At Mobimeo, everyone listens to everyone else. That shows me that I also have a voice and that my ideas make a difference.
