Do you know what unites the computer or phone you're reading this on, the watch you're wearing, and that designer shirt you're not wearing? Global freight. It's a trillion dollar industry, with 90% of all goods imported by ship and the rest imported by air.

We believe that the process of moving goods around the world should be smooth. So we’ve created the online freight marketplace and SaaS software to usher the logistics industry into the digital era, making global shipping faster, more cost-effective and smoother.

We are already helping global air carriers in 90+ countries and over 1,000 freight companies automate sales and operations, with nearly one million monthly searches. This all builds it up to feed Freightos, the world's largest online freight marketplace, with $90 million in funding, tens of thousands of users, and some incredibly complex technology.

We want you to help us bring this industry online.

Changing global trade starts with shipping great code. That's why we’re looking for a Senior Front-end Engineer to join our growing Barcelona R&D team. The perfect candidate will be one who can drive stellar results at scale in the cloud, building V1 and V2 products that are so amazing they give us goosebumps.

Come ready for a challenge and don’t be fooled by container ships; this is rocket-science technology.

You’ll drive software architecture and design patterns for the front-end of our flagship product. Freightos sets an incredibly high bar to meet internal and customer commitments; you’re the type of engineer that pushes the bar even higher, mentoring and cultivating to drive consensus and align different opinions. Not to mention leveraging your experience in building products that delight our customers, microservices and APIs that scream modularity. From bug-zapping to analytics and on to problem-solving, you have the skills needed to bring a trillion dollar industry online.

As a Senior Front-end Software Engineer at Freightos you will:

  • As a Cargo Code Commander, you’ll lead software development of major features and systems (architect, design, build and maintain), with a special focus on the front-end components
  • Contribute throughout the development and deployment cycle across the R&D organization
  • With over a million lines of code, ship happens. You’ll troubleshoot and solve complex problems and introduce mechanisms, new designs and best practices to prevent the recurrence of the problem
  • Freight never slows down; our engineers participate in the on-call rotation

Main requirements

  • Bachelor or Master’s degree in Computer Science or a related field
  • Excellent (seriously, excellent) programming skills in Javascript, Java or an OO programing language with over 5 years of experience making computer magic happen
  • Excellent Computer Science fundamentals, object-oriented design, data structures, algorithm design, problem-solving, and complexity analysis
  • Excellent communication, self-organization, time management and interpersonal skills
  • You must be fluent in English with excellent reading, speaking and writing skills *

Nice to have

  • Good knowledge of Google/AWS cloud infrastructure and platforms (load balancers, storage, databases)
  • Experience building amazing user interfaces with state of the art front-end frameworks, especially with React-Redux
  • Experience with automation and testing frameworks for front-end technologies


  • Freight is huge. But it doesn't need to be boring. We make sure to create a working environment that makes changing something really big really fun
  • An exceptional working environment in a dynamic and international team
  • Build something that changes the world
  • Competitive benefits with Employee Stock Ownership Plan packages
  • Friendly, get-ship-done environment
  • Work side-by-side with outstanding talents
