Avail is a car sharing service to help people get where they want to go–whether that’s to run errands, take an unforgettable road trip, or explore a new city–while helping locals earn cash from their unused cars. We are passionate about making shared transportation safe, simple, and affordable, and redefining what it means to own a car.
We’ve assembled some of the sharpest folks from across industries to compete against the antiquated system of traditional car rental. We put ideas into action and learn along the way in an open, collaborative work environment. As a part of Avail, you’ll make a direct impact and help build a business from the ground up. No matter where you’ve been, we’re always looking for fresh thinking and new perspectives.
We are looking for a technical, proactive, and passionate person who embraces challenges and is a proven problem solver. You will be a part of multiple teams tasked with multiple projects building Web Front-End User Interfaces using React and Node.js and BackEnd in Node.js, Kotlin and Java that are highly functional, secure, scalable, and robust. Engineers will learn the full project lifecycle from start (gathering requirements) to finish (release into production). You will get excellent mobility experience that will help you throughout your career.
You will be working with colleagues who will support and challenge you daily. Unit testing, code reviewing, and regular check-ins for continuous integration is just part of your DNA. We are an Agile Scrum development shop with 2-week iterations.
We expect our engineers to do much more than just writing code:
- Write optimized, secure, and scalable code
- Partner closely with multi-functional teams to produce an application that flows seamlessly and works intuitively with our customers
- Comfortable communicating with non-technical teams
- Come up with creative solutions to solve problems

- Driven and self-motivated problem-solver. Work creatively to solve challenging problems
