[About us] 

We are a technology company working towards digitalizing international trading, and the first digital forwarding company in Japan (aiming to become No. 1 in Asia). We are building a multi-faceted digital platform which allows both customers (importer/exporter) and operators to efficiently and fluidly process international trade workflows, which today is mostly processed through human labour. Our platform currently covers freight forwarding and we are aiming to expand our coverage throughout the international trade supply chain. 

 

[Our mission] 

At Shippio we are focused on revolutionising the legacy industry of logistics. We plan to do away with tracking things on paper and by hand with a centralised platform that provides an easy to use dashboard for automated data entry and document generation. 

 

[About you] 

We’re looking for passionate engineers who love coding and creating great products. Because we need to evolve fast in a sea with big fish, we are looking for highly ambitious engineers who want to work on major aspects of the Shippio product — from the back-end through to the end user experience. 

You will develop web applications in collaboration with project managers, designers, and back-end engineers while providing perspectives and recommendations to enhance user experience. 

 

[Position description] 

We created our product 3 years ago and realised that it was no longer aligned with the business strategy. Therefore, last summer we made the decision to rebuild from scratch. We used this opportunity to move our FE stack from Vue.js to React.js as the team was eager to learn. We currently have 2 web applications and soon will have a 3rd, each with different user stories and challenges.

▪ Train team members through code reviews and pair programming

▪ Development project management

  • Able to work smoothly and autonomously in a multicultural environment 

  • Good intra and inter-team communication skills 

  • Valid work authorization or a degree in a related field for those requiring visa sponsorship

[Preferred skills] 

  • Communication skills in Japanese are highly appreciated 

  • Intellectually curious and eager to take on new challenges 

  • Interested in working on Business to Business development by leveraging your own development experience

[Our Current Stack]
