Remote Senior Full Stack (Python) Engineer - JF198

Salary: up to $5100

About Us:  

Our mission is to transform international supply chains to be more resilient by helping logistics companies realize the full potential of their data. We cater to both shipping lines and cargo airlines. This covers 90% of the world trade volume that travels via ocean and 35% of the world trade value that travels via air. We use proprietary machine learning algorithms and real-time external market data (such as economic indices,  marine weather, satellite-based data, etc.) to predict how much cargo will be shipped when it will arrive and deliver actionable insights.

We are excited to be a fast-growing team of software engineers, data scientists, and industry experts.  Based out of Singapore, we’ve been building together since 2018 and are backed by some of the leading investors, including Wavemaker Partners, Entrepreneur First, SGInnovate, and Investigate VC.

About the role:  

We have already been used by global freight-forwarding companies, manufacturers, and cargo airlines.  Our customers trust us to deliver fast, reliable, and secure predictions to unleash greater profitability and realize the true value of their logistics data. We want to continue earning their trust while also scaling and delivering new products to serve their needs.
