WHO IS BEELINE?
Beeline is on a mission to help the world have better journeys by bike. Founded in 2015 by Mark and Tom, two friends who wanted to solve the problem of getting lost in London on their bikes, Beeline is now a passionate team of 15 with big ambitions to get more people on bikes, all the while hoping to leave the world better than we found it.
Beeline’s hardware products are beautifully designed devices to guide riders of bikes and motorcycles on their journeys.. Behind these devices lies a huge amount of cutting edge software, from mobile apps built on the latest technologies and backend systems processing crowdsourced data, to machine learning routing engines and sensor fusion algorithms.
Having focused on hardware sales until now, we’re about to release our app (iOS & Android) as a standalone product, enabling us to reach many more people and help them to ride at this time when the bicycle is becoming ever-more important as a mode of transport.
This emphasises the need for our apps to provide the best possible experience, which is why we need you to join our mobile team!
N.B. like many companies we’re currently working remotely and will continue to do so until at least April 2021 (with some London office space for those who need it). We’re still working out our long term model but expect a flexible mix of home and office working. Rest assured we'll go to lenghts to ensure you're fully integrated into the team.
WHO WE'RE LOOKING FOR
We're looking for a great mobile developer to bring their talent in iOS development and be keen to learn new skills. You'll already have some good experience, but more importantly you will be eager to learn, adapt and to solve interesting problems. We're still in the exciting startup phase in which the demands on our tech team are in flux. So rather than deep specialists, we want curious, smart people who relish adapting to new technologies and taking on new challenges. If that sounds like you, we'd love to talk!
At Beeline we’re committed to diversity and inclusivity. Not only because it’s right and fair but because bringing together people from all walks of life adds richness that helps us be better in every way. So no matter your background, who you are or how you identify, we’ll make sure you feel at home here.
WHAT YOU’LL BE WORKING ON
Our iOS and Android apps are the key interaction point for our users so we need to keep driving them to be the very best they can be. You can expect to work closely with our designers on implementing new features based on user research as well as interfacing closely with our entire tech stack from firmware to machine learning models to build a seamless end to end product we can all be proud of. You’ll be given the freedom to work independently but have full support from the rest of the team when you need it.
IMPACT OF THE WORK
Two wheeled transport is set to play a huge role in the future of our cities as well as a leisure activity and we’re building a key enabler for this growth. Bike use is growing for good reasons – the combined impact of improving citizens’ health and wellbeing as well as the broader environmental benefits make this a no brainer. The trend is helped along by huge new industries in Micromobility (shared bikes/scooters) and two-wheeled delivery fleets. The coronavirus pandemic has brought the need for cycling into even sharper focus. Safely navigating all these riders is key to increasing participation and reaping the societal benefits. We’re striving to be the company that does that.
WHAT IT’S LIKE TO WORK AT BEELINE
We’re a very close-knit team of 15, with everyone owning their own different responsibilities. People very quickly find that they become an important part of our Beeline “family”; we’d love for you to be part of that too! We’re proud of our culture and we dedicate a lot of time and energy into protecting that. We do regular socials, an annual retreat, and generally try to have a great time doing our thing every day. Everyone takes their work seriously, but nobody takes themselves too seriously. That’s how we like to do things.
