Senior Backend Engineer (M/F/D)

Passionate Senior Backend Engineer to define the next level of logistics together with us!

For our growing software department we are looking for a passionate team player who as a Senior Backend Engineer celebrates the teams success and shares his creativity and knowledge all to shape the next level of logistics software.

We are LetMeShip and aim to strengthen our position as the European market leader for multi-carrier shipping solutions. For over 20 years, our platform has provided a unique value proposition on courier, express and parcel services for our customers, improving their workflow efficiencies in the form of time and cost savings.

What is that next level thing you are talking about

Together with a growing team of very senior frontend and backend developers, you will define the future of logistics. LetMeShip is already known as one of the leaders of the market in multi-carrier shipping solutions, but we want more. We want others to follow our lead in software development. This is why we have established a team that is capable of thinking ahead of everyone else, going the extra mile and redefining what logistics software means!

In parallel with our existing application we are starting from scratch, on a clean slate, to be as creative as possible in creating solutions for several topics (labelling, tracking, shipments with multiple carriers, invoicing, etc.) that supercharges our existing and future customers and partners in their daily work.

You can expect a tech stack that is state of the art where you will also have a word on driving future decisions. So far we have committed on Scala and/or Java for backend services in a microservice architecture completed by the Angular Framework on the Frontend(s).
