Headquarters: Birmingham, AL


Fleetio is looking for an Engineering leader who has an unrelenting drive and the know-how to build scalable, maintainable software solutions with great software design principles and a pragmatic approach.

Fleetio has a modern tech stack (Ruby on Rails, ReactJS, ES6, Postgres) and we are growing our product and team rapidly. As a Staff Software Engineer, you will play a pivotal role in shaping the architecture and technical direction based on our product vision. The ideal candidate relishes taking on challenging problems, has a solid track record of building scalable solutions, and can become an expert of a sub-domain within the platform.

Fleetio is a modern software platform that helps thousands of organizations around the world manage a fleet. We are making an impact on how our customers manage their fleets and you will play a major role in helping shape a key sub-domain within the platform. You can learn more about our platform here. Transportation technology is a hot market and we’re leading the charge, with raving fans and new customers signing up every day. We recently raised a $21M Series B round and are on an exciting trajectory as a company. You can learn more about it here.

This is a remote role and is open to candidates in the United States, Canada, or Mexico.

What you'll be doing
  • You will work closely with the Lead Engineer to own a large business domain and provide technical direction to your squad as necessary.
  • You will help the team deliver well-tested, maintainable and performant code.
  • You will act as a liaison and work closely with Product Managers, Designers, and other Engineers to plan, design, architect, and implement features in the core areas of our platform.
  • You will be working with interesting data points/streams at scale (both in-house data and from integrations with 3rd parties such as GPS and fuel card providers) to provide actionable insights to the end-user.
  • You will research, implement prototypes and spikes as necessary to validate assumptions and technical feasibility.
  • You will champion code quality and introduce necessary design patterns by working in unison with other Staff and Principal Engineers.
  • You will pave the way for other Engineers on the team by building a solid technical foundation.
  • You will help grow Fleetio's Engineering culture and brand.

What's in it for you
  • Be a part of an incredible team of “A” players who go above and beyond to make Fleetio a successful company. You will build software used by people all around the world. So many different types of companies and organizations operate a fleet each day, and Fleetio is a good fit for most of them (it’s a huge market).
  • Work remotely (within the United States, Canada, or Mexico) or at our Birmingham, AL HQ. Over 80% of our Engineering Team works remotely (including our CTO), and we have promoted a strong remote working culture since the beginning (2012).
  • We place great emphasis on work/life balance. We have families and hobbies and know you do too.
