Smartcar is the car API for developers. We empower developers to build the future of mobility.

Smartcar’s platform allows web and mobile apps to locate and unlock cars using simple HTTP requests. Our API works with without aftermarket hardware, allowing developers to locate, unlock, and read the odometer from cars of 13 brands in a single integration.

Founded in 2015, Smartcar has raised $12M in seed and series A funding from the venture capital firms Andreessen Horowitz (a16z) and New Enterprise Associates (NEA).

Our customers range from early-stage startups to large enterprises. To name a few, the mobile car wash service Spiffy, the peer-to-peer car sharing marketplace Turo, and the oil and gas company Shell are using our API to build innovative mobility experiences.

As a Full-Stack Engineer, you will build, maintain and expand the Smartcar API platform. You will report directly to Smartcar's CTO, Sanketh.

We'd love for you to join us.

Engineering at Smartcar
Engineering team and processes

Smartcar's engineering team follows an agile development process with 2 week sprints. Every engineer has input into the planning process. We believe in shipping fast but also maintaining high code quality. We employ a continuous delivery system to ship features rapidly. However, we also maintain a stringent set of quality checks including: - Linting - 95% + code coverage - Unit and Integration tests - Required peer code reviews

Technical Challenges

We are building an API that has to communicate with vehicles of many different makes and models in real time.

Projects you might work on
  • You would build out a fine grained permissioning system that empowers vehicle owners to know exactly the level of access they are providing an application.

  • You would own majors parts in building out our developer experience.

  • You would build out a vehicle simulator and testing platform from scratch! This will enable developers to validate their applications without owning a real vehicle.
