Our Mission

There are millions of trucks on the road every day. The shocking truth: Every third truck runs empty. You can imagine the negative impact on our environment, our roads and the logistics market.

At Cargonexx we’re building a platform that reduces the carbon footprint of road freight by automatically avoiding empty capacities. Applying machine learning algorithms to create market transparency and making it easy for shippers and carriers alike to find the best match with the shortest empty haul possible, with fair prices for all sides.

We’re far from done - that’s why we need talented people onboard on our mission to build an environmentally friendly and digitalized logistics industry.

Therefore, we are currently looking for a (Senior) Backend Engineers - Java and AWS (m/f/d).

What our software engineers say

In a growing and agile development team, you will be...

  • Building a disruptive software product for the user: develop and implement browser-based backends that are easy to use and make it easy, swift and engaging to manage road freight supply and demand.
  • Developing code today and prepare for the future: build pragmatic yet state-of-the-art code that scales into the future.
  • Shaping the future of our product: Ideate and discover new product features and opportunities to drive our mission forward.

"Our codebase is currently Java for back-end, supported by some node.js services, browser-targeted React on the frontend. We use AWS services where they make sense (e.g. hosted MySQL on RDS, Lambda for some services), and apply new technologies where they help us."
