Life at Drivetrain

Drivetrain provides a great culture for engineers to thrive in and be happy. 

  • Remote-friendly: Drivetrain brings together the best and the brightest, no matter where they are and provides them a great degree of autonomy. We trust them to do the right thing.

  • Open & transparent:  When creators have access to all the information they need, the best product can emerge.

  • Idea-friendly:  We provide an environment to explore,  to take risks, to make mistakes and to learn, so you can succeed. Anyone can come up with great ideas and bring about a change. We let the best ideas win.

  • Customer-centric:  We constantly learn from our customers and collaborate to build the amazing software that Drivetrain is.

What you’ll be doing

  • The underlying technical problems are challenging - how do you design abstractions that minimise custom code, as every business is a little different; how do you deal with data scattered across multiple systems and make sense of a large number of moving parts.

  • You get to work on a cutting edge stack consisting of Java, Spring, Hibernate, Redis, Elasticsearch, PostgreSQL, BigQuery, and AWS.

  • As an early team member, you’ll help shape our company culture, engineering practices, and the product.


  • A great problem solver and is passionate about the craft of building software.

  • Has a deep understanding of algorithms, data structures, and distributed systems.

  • Has at least 3 years of experience in software engineering.

  • Experience with the above-mentioned stack would be helpful but is not necessary.

  • Is aspirational, self-driven, and proactive.

  • Has excellent communication skills.
