De vacatureAs urbanization is rising and the air quality is deteriorating, we feel the need to make our cities greener and healthier by offering a sustainable mobility solution. Besides, we offer a new and fun way around
town! At felyx, our objective is to create cleaner cities by making this swift door-to-door transportation the new status quo. We are working together as an ambitious team of entrepreneurs, operators,
marketers and engineers, and are looking to grow as we scale the business throughout Europe. Do you share our DNA: self-starting, open, social, analytic, driven and with a good sense of humor? Great! Join
our ride.

Here's the challenge
In the last twelve months we've been able to rapidly grow our fleet and team and last summer we have launched our operations in Brussels which marks the start of our international journey. As multiple followup
expansions are already in the making, Felyx is seeking an experienced, motivated and hands-on Head of Engineering to join felyx in its international growth and to become part of the felyx Leadership Team.
You are leading the Tech team and are collaborating with other Heads of departments to run our daily business at the same time. As Head of Engineering at felyx you get the space, opportunity and responsibility to build what we see as backbone of the company: the backend and front-end of the product that everyone loves, our sustainable e-scooters!

The Engineering team
You will be leading a multidisciplinary team, consisting of fullstack, iOS and Android developers. The team works in Scrum in 2-week sprints on their multiple applications: an iOS app written in Swift 5, an Android
app written in Kotlin and a backoffice app implemented with Go in a microservices setup, using Postgres as the database and VueJS in the frontend, deployed to Kubernetes.

What you'll be doing

  • Leading the team on a daily basis, making sure we deliver quality systems that are maintainable and are performing well
  • Helping developers out by diving into specific issues or by advising them on the way forward
  • Fostering a team mindset in which people can grow and make the best of themselves
  • Setting the vision and the quarterly/yearly goals for the team
  • Help build the technical vision and explaining it in non-technical terms
  • Be abreast of new developments in the field and adjust the plans accordingly
  • Troubleshooting issues and writing code where necessary
  • Managing the people in the team and setting the stage for hiring and recruitment
  • Interfacing with third parties to foster good partnerships
  • Extending the current system to support international expansion
  • Architecting the backend and apps to integrate with AI-driven improvements
