Vacancy for Junior back-end developer

About Us

We are a London-based company who are developing an end-to-end supply chain solution for cross-border movement of goods. We have a small team in London that collaborates with a larger team based in Istanbul. Our focus is to deliver a beautiful functional product to our users. These users are any party involved in an international supply chain: importers, exporters, logistics service providers, warehouse operators and customs agencies/freight forwarders. We are looking to expand our team in London with anyone who is keen to work on agile projects in a growing company. This role would suit someone with an interest in learning how to manage a business and develop some technical skills.

The nature of our work means that we value any experience working with Node, React, Typescript, CI/CD pipelines, TDD/BDD, cloud deployments, NoSQL & SQL databases, container platforms (Docker, Kubernetes), and software with a micro-service architecture. That said, there will be opportunities to grow into & shape the role – and familiarity with any of those components is far from a pre-requisite. An interest in blockchain, and familiarity with Hyperledger Fabric is desirable – but most of all we are looking for a pro-active colleague who is willing to tackle a wide range of work.
