Introducing Masabi

// At Masabi, we’re driving the fare payment revolution, powering the journeys of millions all over the world. We build fare collection platforms that allow riders to seamlessly buy and present tickets for public transport either on their mobile phones, from a ticket machine, or even by tapping their bank card to travel.

Our Justride platform is used in over 150 locations worldwide, including some of the largest cities in the world. With our industry-first mobile ticketing SDK, we’ve partnered with large players in the transport space, including Uber, Moovit and Lyft.

Your own journey is important to us too. Choosing a role here means joining a network of innovators from all walks of life; a group of passionate individuals who consistently deliver. Here, you’ll find the tools you need to build the career you want. Whether you’re taking the direct route or trying a new path, we’ll support you no matter what.


//This role is available in the EU on a fully remote basis and as a contract position.

Role Description

// Masabi is looking for a Java/Kotlin engineer to join our Rider Experience Engineering team. We operate as three tribes, with each tribe containing one or more pods, and each pod being a team of around 5 engineers working as an agile unit.

You will play a big part in defining and shaping the solutions that we implement, to ensure not only that our customers get a great experience, but also that we receive enough feedback about our implementation to iterate and improve upon it.

Our Tech

We use a variety of technologies across our tribes and pods, including but not limited to:

  • Kotlin / Java 11 / Groovy (Spock)

  • DropWizard / Spring Boot

  • AWS Lambda / Fargate / EC2 / S3 / SQS / DynamoDb / RDS

  • Terraform / Puppet

  • Git / Gradle / Maven

  • OpenAPI

We don’t expect you to know everything on the list, you’ll be given the opportunity to learn anything which is new to you.

We practice TDD, CI and our deployment cycles range from multiple times per day up to fortnightly depending on the pod.

Our Team:

// We are looking for a Java developer with experience in Kotlin to work as part of our highly successful Justride team. The Justride team is responsible for the design and development of a new hybrid mobile app and web application along with necessary endpoints and backend services. These platforms combined currently process over $1 billion in transactions a year. With these kinds of numbers, security and fraud mitigation are paramount to our success.

About You

  • Communication and collaboration skills. You understand how your communication style can impact other people and you enjoy being part of a team.

  • A desire to learn and eagerness to contribute are very important to you. There are plenty of features that are not yet designed, let alone implemented, so you must be keen to get stuck in and make your mark.

  • You should take a holistic approach to development, caring about the entire Masabi platform as well as the core components owned by your pod.

  • You will have experience working with Java and Kotlin, building backend web services.

  • You should have a bias for action and be willing to take calculated risks where appropriate.

// Careers at Masabi are for people who are going places – people who are moved by our mission to improve accessibility and make fares fair for everyone. We are grateful to be a network of innovators from all walks of life; a group of passionate individuals who consistently deliver. We operate with openness — we celebrate multiple approaches and points of view and strive to create an environment where everyone feels empowered to bring their whole, authentic selves to work.

Whoever you are, just be yourself.

We encourage people from underrepresented backgrounds to apply; we don’t discriminate. Also, please notify our team of your pronouns at any point in your application. We believe in journeys made simple. Excursions made effortless. So, we cancel out confusion and leverage our collective expertise to support transit agencies and make life better for millions of riders — together, we are creating a future.

We’re already powering journeys – are you ready to join us?
