Senior Software Developer, Parking at Inrix
Santa Monica, CA, US

INRIX is a leading provider of real-time traffic information, parking information, connected car services, and mobility analytics. We leverage technology and data to make it safer, cleaner, and more enjoyable for people to get to where they need to go.

INRIX Parking is an awesome place to work: We’re located in the heart of Santa Monica and have flexible work hours, unlimited PTO, lots of snacks and drinks, a dog-friendly office, an on-site gym, quarterly team outings, and catered Friday lunches. We’re a small, focused team, so we operate like a startup but also have the support of our head office in Seattle. 

In this role, you’ll be responsible for building and maintaining the systems supporting our Parking services. We have a consumer-facing application consisting of a website and mobile apps and an API serving businesses. This API will be your focus, providing online parking data to well-known car manufacturers, governments, and several internet companies.

On a typical day, you’ll start by picking up a task from the backlog and working on adding new product functionality. We use a collaborative, Agile process with very few meetings. If you come across a problem, you’ll chat with your colleagues, perhaps do some pair programming, or start a whiteboard session with the team. If you’re interested, you can sign up for work on our DevOps practice, the Machine Learning capabilities, Database tuning, or Improve our data collection tools. We try to make sure everyone knows the code base, but we welcome specialization just as much.

Our current tech stack is Python, Django, and Elastic Beanstalk, with several related technologies, like Postgres, Redis, and Jenkins. We’re exploring re-platforming our most popular API endpoints and look forward to your advice and help in scaling further. With the type of customers we serve, uptime and data quality are very important, so we’re continually expanding our monitoring, alerting and DevOps tooling.
