Job description

we are unu

We believe in cities in which all people are able to embrace the full potential of urban life. This is why we are committed to creating the mobility solution, that fully connects people to their city. unu is an urban mobility brand based in Berlin.

Our first product was the unu Scooter Classic, an electric scooter with portable batteries and was launched in 2014. Our products are sold both directly to consumers and business customers, making them accessible to everyone and resulting in fair prices by eluding dealership costs. In 2019, we launched the second generation of our scooter: The unu Scooter was designed inhouse and completely re-developed with our partners in Germany. 

The new scooter offers space for two people, as well as the largest storage space and one of the fastest acceleration values in the electric scooter segment. With its own app and integrated display, it also offers innovative smart features such as navigation, theft protection and digital key sharing. After a successful rollout in Germany, Austria, the Netherlands and France, unu is now expanding into further European countries.

With already more than 100 creative challengers striving for simply perfect solutions, we are now looking for a strong  SRE (Site Reliability Engineer) to join the team in unu’s headquarter in Berlin. 


At unu you have the chance to join the bold development of a coming generation of mobility. Dream up ideas, discuss technical possibilities, assess tech alternatives and then quickly make it work. With your contribution, the next unu generation will become more advanced, smarter and personal. We offer you the opportunity to work with an award-winning, expert team in our lab in central Berlin and develop technologies for the next level of mobility.

What you will be doing:

  • As SRE (Site Reliability Engineer), you take part in the development of various applications and APIs that will bring the urban mobility experience to a whole new level
  • You help building an extensive IoT backend using cutting-edge technology with containers and microservices and you will be responsible for implementing concepts like high-availability, horizontal-scalability and fault-tolerance
  • Ensure highly-available and reliable systems
  • Grow our reliability engineering culture
  • Improve and maintain our internal tooling, monitoring and platform
  • Take ownership of our AWS and Google Cloud platforms

  • Experience in operating Kubernetes clusters (yes, multiple)
  • Knowing how to engineer to avoid the 3AM PagerDuty call
  • Experience with Node.js
  • Experience with running a replicated sharded MongoDB cluster is a plus
  • Excellent English communication skills

Our Toolset:

  • Docker

  • A work environment based on trust with flexible working hours and vacation days, as well as the possibility to work remotely during the week
  • Competitive salary and attractive stock options
  • A creative workspace in Kreuzberg
