Be part of the urban transport revolution

Want to use your talents to make a difference?  You can do that with Tiller Rides working for a start-up developing innovative products that will be sold worldwide. We're looking for someone passionate about software development and who is results focused to assist with our transition to mass production.

Tiller Rides was founded back in 2016 to help address emerging problems in our cities such as car congestion, declining health and wellbeing, and expanding environmental footprints. With this in mind we have created a cutting-edge e-bike for urban riders wanting a healthy, cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to travel around their city. 

We’ve called it the Roadster.


About the role


With an unrivaled set of features and style the Roadster is like no other e-bike on the planet.

At present the design team is working hard to complete the tooling and setting up of the production line in China so we can commence mass production in early 2021. With the electronics now complete we need someone to lead the refinement of our App and create the serverless backend that will enable the Roadster to be communicated with and controlled remotely. 


The position would suit someone with a software engineering background or with sound software development experience. Experience with software development, especially the current way that Apps and cloud based backends are created is essential to this role.   


While we are only engaging one person at this point we imagine the development team will grow over time as we increase the feature set. This first role is a chance to lead the direction of this part of the business.
