About Motorcity Systems

Motorcity Systems was founded in 2017 by a group of transportation professionals with a vision to build a new breed of  transportation software. Not satisfied  with the workflows,  scalability,  or connectivity  offered by existing platforms, we set out todevelop the tools our industry needs with a user experience it deserves.

Like our company’s namesake, Motorcity Systems was built from the ground up through hard work and grit. Our team is comprised of experienced professionals who love a good laugh as much as we love building software that solves real problems. We are ageographically distributed team, but we work and play together with team dinners and events throughout the year.

What You’ll Do

We follow Agile development  principles, primarily the Scrum framework. We are not  a large development team and we don’t act like one – we have quick design discussions to build the best software we can, and we pivot when we learn something new thatcauses us to change direction. We attack interesting problems with a balance between building new and cool stuff and leveragingthe plethora of great libraries and frameworks that already exist. Ultimately, we take great pride in building software that worksand makes someone’s job easier, and those principles guide everything we do.

We count on our mobile software engineers to use languages and tools like the ones listed below to build usable, functional, andreliable mobile interfaces for our users. Their work enables our users to get the most out of our products, from messaging withdrivers to managing a business through advanced analytics.

  • React Native or equivalent for cross-platform mobile applications
  • Jest or equivalent for unit testing
  • e2e testing in Android Emulators and iOS simulators
  • Git or equivalent for code repositories, branching, and pull request workflows
  • Tools like CircleCI or Azure DevOps for Cl/CD pipelines

We don’t like silos of information, so while most of the work you’ll do will be limited to the mobile app itself, you will also become a more effective engineer by occasionally working in other, adjacent parts of our products. This includes:

  • User interface work using CSS and a number of Angular libraries
  • Debugging and modifying existing APls
  • Writing automated tests across the tech stack
  • Investigatingbug reports throughout our product line
