As a Senior Frontend Engineer, you will


  • Collaborate ‒ within a small but highly-skilled team to fundamentally change the way people think about logistics software.
  • Design ‒ simple solutions to complex problems, with a high degree of freedom, from start to finish.
  • Develop ‒ robust, tested, and usable interfaces, which you and your colleagues enjoy working with.
  • Improve ‒ our customer dashboards, private NPM packages, and user experience.
  • Lead ‒ champion best-practices and encourage knowledge sharing.


We require

  • Past experience of working in agile teams, using continuous integration and deployment practices.
  • Humility. We appreciate constructive criticism and are not afraid to employ it.
  • Strong communication skills. (English required, German an asset)
