#Thecompany

At FreightHub, we are building the backbone of global trade. We are revolutionizing logistics by making it easier, faster, and more cost-efficient to move goods from point A to point B anywhere in the world – via container ships, planes, trucks, and trains.

By radically automating processes and designing a superior user experience we make buying and selling goods anywhere on the globe more efficient and easy than ever before. If you aim to create impact with your work, solve real-world problems, and digitalize a multi-trillion-€ industry that fosters global prosperity, we’d love you to join FreightHub!


#Theopportunity

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
