Our Realize and Engage teams at Spare are looking for new team members!
Spare’s Realize team works on improving and deploying new features for our transportation planning tool called Realize. Spare Realize helps anyone to rapidly prototype different ways to deploy a transportation service anywhere in the world, delivering insights around key metrics like expected ridership or operational cost. Our Realize Team includes members of Product, Engineering, and Data Science, to deliver a data-driven transportation strategy to our customers.
Spare’s Engage team bridges the communication gap between riders, drivers, and admins, making it easy to collect and store information such as Paratransit eligibility. This team supports equity and accessibility across the globe through the creation and maintenance of our eligibility evaluation and management tools. The Engage Team works closely with Product and Platform teams to ensure consistent and reliable service for our customers and riders.
As a New Graduate Software Developer, you will be working with a passionate and dedicated team to move the dial on global accessibility every day (for people and for vehicles).
Spare HQ is Vancouver, BC, but this position is open to remote work options across Canada.
What you’ll do
– You’ll work on exciting projects focused around the capabilities of our system, building features and improving existing functionality.
– Design, code, test, document, and release new features using a combination of tools and languages, including Node.JS, TypeScript, Docker, Kubernetes, and PostgreSQL.
– Design, build, and maintain APIs, services, and systems with either the Realize or Engage team.

– Be a technical collaborator on the team by demonstrating an unrelenting focus on quality, speed, and overall excellence.

Who you are
– You have recently completed a Bachelor of Computer Science, Mathematics, or Statistics, or related discipline.
– You have the ability to quickly learn new technologies and languages, even if you don’t have experience with our exact stack (React, React Native, Node.JS, TypeScript, Docker, Kubernetes, and SQL databases).
– You love building beautiful, functional products.
– You are great at communicating and presenting your work to a general audience that has little or no background in your field.
