Remote Friendly. You can work close to where you love to live and still be a key part of Lime (US & Canada only)

Lime operates electric scooters and bikes, but our mission is larger. We believe in transforming cities through green, affordable, and accessible transportation for everyone. Headquartered in San Francisco, USA, we operate in more than 120 cities in 31 countries, with plans to expand responsibly. To do that, we need great people.

As a backend Software Engineer at Lime, you'll build the core technology that powers Lime's global services. You’ll craft systems that serve boatloads of requests from our connected vehicles and consumer-facing apps. On a typical day, you’ll be working alongside a group of engineers, designers, and PMs with experience from top companies.

What you'll do:


  • Develop robust systems that serve both our user-facing apps and our internal tools
  • Pick up new programming languages and frameworks on the fly and helping out where needed
  • Closely monitor the performance of all critical parts of our stack and respond to system failures
  • Be diligent about tracking data so that we have a good look into how we can improve our products
  • Work with a talented team of designers, product managers, and operators
  • Dogfood our product and document any bugs or feature requests

About you:


  • You have a degree in Computer Science or equivalent technical background
  • 4+ years of industry experience as a software engineer
  • Fluency in at least one web framework, such as Ruby on Rails
  • You have experience working with relational databases

Lime is an Equal Opportunity Employer, but that’s only the start. We want people with different backgrounds, abilities, identities, and mindsets to join us—not just to do great work, but to build a better, more representative world.
