Job description

We are industry veterans and data-scientists using innovative technology to fearlessly reinvent the future of freight.

  • 3+ years of UI development having in-depth knowledge about Javascript, HTML5 and CSS, including concepts like layout, specificity, cross-browser compatibility

  • 1+ years of experience utilizing Javascript framework React

  • Experience with best practices for web performance optimization

  • Passion. Be passionate about creating clean, highly maintainable, and structured code, supported by unit and integration tests

  • Collaboration with Back End. Experience with integrating REST APIs as well as their design so you can also collaborate on its definition together with our backend team

  • Collaboration with Design. Working knowledge of UI/UX practices, as well as understanding the web standards

  • Curiosity. You're keen on learning new technologies and tools as well as evaluating their pros and cons. You're a pragmatic programmer. You ask questions and are eager to learn more

  • Leadership. You have mentored others and helped them become the best version of themselves. You are a reference to the group and keep up with their training needs - it is a plus.

What you will find here:

  • Generous Stock Option Plan

  • Competitive Compensation

  • Building a Rapidly-Growing Tech Company

  • International Environment / Career

  • Ability to Work with Cutting-Edge Technology

  • Access to an Online Learning Platform
