Our Company
Simplifying global trade is Freighthub's mission from day one. We are leveraging our digital mindset and technological skillset to revolutionise this multi-billion dollar industry by increasing transparency and reducing hassle for everybody that is moving goods on this planet, may it be an up and coming FBA Seller or a corporate customer. Equipped with a team of experienced founders and backed by top tier investors we are touching the lives of millions of end customers every day. The only thing missing is YOU to continue our journey. 

The Opportunity
As one of the top European Tech companies we are expanding our international presence to Portugal. Therefore we are opening a Tech Hub in Porto and need your help to make it happen. You will have the unique opportunity to shape the culture and team of this location and push the Tech scene of Portugal 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
