Who are they?

Founded in 2016, Otoqi is a VC backed French Start-Up, based on two main pillars: 50% technology and 50% operations.

Our mission is to accelerate the mobility revolution by offering lean and tech-enabled B2B solutions to mobility players, helping them in the extremely complex operations of vehicle fleet management.

Otoqi is currently operating in all major French (Paris, Lyon, Marseille, Lille, etc.), Italian (Milan, Rome, Bologne, etc.) and German (Berlin, Hamburg) cities. A European leader for new mobility services, we are currently completing close to 1000 missions each day and maintaining >100% annual growth rates.

Job description

Otoqi has developed a robust and varied backend over the last 5 years, covering AI logic (staffing, operation load assessment, etc.), complex billing, payment processes, interfaces with more than 4 complex frontends and an app in ReactNative thanks to our partners around the world.

It is time to bring the developers closer to the users and specifiers (sales and operations teams!).

  • You will be a key member of our leadership team (member of the exec team)
  • You will manage a team of 15 FTE + developers
  • Goal is to converge our product from a multi-model into a “couteau-suisse” model capable of serving all end-uses

  • Front-ends in Angular (updated in the latest version)
  • Backend in Java (version 11, Spring Boot 2.4.4). All covered by an exhaustive suite of automated end-to-end tests.

We develop many new products with a low-code tool that speeds up production while guaranteeing very good performance.
