  • Write job descriptions and hire new engineers
  • Characterize and test mechanical, thermal, and vibrational properties of electric bikes and scooters.
  • Develop test cases to validate reliability of components
  • Develop tools and methods to automate testing in Chinese factories
  • Perform quantitative tests to determine how temperature, humidity, and mechanical stress impact system performance
  • Create and maintain engineering processes and documentation.
  • Oversee tests methods at Chinese factories.
  • Lead, motivate, and mentor your team to deliver high-quality results.


What You’ll Need
  • Analytical curiosity and ability to solve complex problems autonomously
  • Detailed experience with reliability tests (thermal, shock, vib, ALT, EMC, etc)
  • Broad general mechanical and electrical engineering knowledge
  • BS in Physics, ME, EE, or a related field and 10 years of work experience

About the Team

JUMP is building the future of urban mobility: shared electric bikes that are the quickest, most enjoyable, and most empowering way to get around a city. Cheaper than most public transit and faster than cars in traffic, JUMP e-bikes radically improve local transportation. Founded in 2010, JUMP pioneered dockless bike share and has deployed more than 15,000 bikes in 6 countries. Our goal is to transform cities, making them more sustainable, equitable, and livable through electric mobility. Recently acquired by Uber, our next step is to scale what we’ve done 100x - and launch electric bike sharing systems in every major city, globally. To make this vision a reality we need to grow our team. We place tremendous value on our company’s roots and culture: a mix of ingenuity, controlled chaos, hard work, and sense of purpose. This is a great opportunity to join a small but rapidly growing team that is shaping the future of transportation.
