The opportunity

As one of the top European Tech companies we are now expanding our international presence to Africa. Therefore we are opening a Tech Hub in Nairobi. You will have the unique opportunity to shape the culture and team of this location and push the Tech scene of Kenya to a new level.

What engineers @FreightHub build

  • We build quoting and routing algorithms to calculate prices for moving goods globally, e.g. what does it cost and how long does it take to move 150 bikes from Taiwan to Berlin via airplane?
  • We ingest live tracking data of ships, trucks and airplanes to infer meaningful actions on the supply chain, e.g. re-routing shipments when a ship arrives late
  • We build a platform that makes global logistics easy, enabling our customers to focus on their core business, e.g. by providing them with a visual dashboard and map of their supply chain for actionable insights at any time
  • We automate processes to lift the degree of automation from 5% to 90% - killing faxes, emails, and phone calls from logistics once and for all
  • We build complex APIs to connect our partners and customers, e.g. for sending a truck through Europe, without ever talking to the driver

How engineers @FreightHub work

  • We are product-focused: Our features are built for customers and our platform exists to provide the best logistics experience in the world
  • We use a modern stack: React in the frontend, NodeJS and Typescript in the backend, MongoDB as database, and an event-driven microservice architecture running on Kubernetes
  • We work in a fast-paced environment: We rely on Kanban-based workflow, push to release every day, deploy high automated test coverage, and monitor constantly

Your Profile

  • Engineering Star: You show that you can master the latest technologies and that you are versatile with modern languages, tools, and workflows. We are looking for Frontend, Backend and Fullstack Engineers
  • Product Lover: You goal is to build great products for customers, instead of moving tickets to Done
  • Fast Learner: You learn quickly and strive to improve every day; you can adapt to a fast-growing organization with constantly changing requirements
  • Passion Driver: You want to work on real world problems that create an impact in our world; you work hard to build a great product and take ownership for delivering high-quality code
  • Experience: You should have a BS/MS in Computer Science or comparable professional experience

Why Us

  • Be part of an international and highly professional young team (Google, BMW, DailyDeal etc.) led by serial entrepreneurs
  • Revolutionize a global USD 450bn market
  • We are backed by top notch VC investors (Northzone, Cherry Ventures, Global Founders Capital) plus strategic advisors from the logistics industry and recently raised a USD 20M Series A round
  • Shape the company with your innovative ideas and solutions
  • Help us change and accelerate worldwide trade
