Arrival is hiring a

Backend Developer (Scala)

Saint Petersburg, Russia
At Arrival, our team is creating best-in-class electric vehicles using a radical new method of design and production. We work with some of the world's leading businesses and governments to achieve our goal of redefining mobility and transport ecosystems, transforming how people and goods travel and enhancing urban environments for all communities.

Innovation, rapid development and testing help us to push the boundaries. Our New Method takes our portfolio of patented technologies created in-house, and combines it with assembly in Arrival Microfactories. It’s a groundbreaking approach, leading to products with maximum functionality, peak efficiency, and an elevated experience – at a much more competitive price than other electric vehicles, and even fossil fuel vehicles.

We’re recognised by LinkedIn as the top UK startup of 2020, and recently announced plans to list on the Nasdaq with an expected valuation of $5.4bn.

In Arrival Robotics (formerly TRA Robotics) we create a 100% robotic industrial factory (industry 4.0), which will be able to take and execute any new design or product configuration in real time. It also will help to avoid the necessity of change in the configuration of factoring processes. We are currently working on the introduction of our technologies in the process of electric vehicles assembly.

Factory Control is a series of web-based applications and supporting micro-services for controlling production processes in factories using Arrival Robotics technologies. Factory dispatchers using this system can monitor, plan and start the facturing process. They also can detect faults and respond to them, create analytics and control equipment, if manual intervention is required. Our product team works closely with all Arrival’s factories, takes part in requirements gathering and factory automation.
