(Senior) Software Engineer (m/f/d)

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. 

Your Role
As a Software Engineer you build FreightHub's backbone that supports global scalability, reliable operations and a high degree of automation.

Your Tasks

  • You 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?
  • You 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
  • You 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
  • You automate processes to lift the degree of automation from 5% to 90% - killing faxes, emails, and phone calls from logistics once and for all
  • You build complex APIs to connect our partners and customers, e.g. for sending a truck through Europe, without ever talking to the driver
  • You build scalable and extendable event-driven microservice architectures with advanced patterns like CQRS and event sourcing.
