About the job

BlueCargo (YC S18) is a shipping container visibility and audit platform, providing transparency and efficiency to the multi-trillion dollar logistics industry. We help our customers, ranging from the largest brands in the world to solo truckers, uncover unfair charges and avoid inefficiencies. Our users have saved hundreds of millions in fees to date, and we’re just getting started.

We’re a remote-first company with a critical mass of people who often work out of offices in LA and NYC. Our product engineering team is looking for another backend engineer to join our ranks, continuing our disruption of a technologically antiquated industry.

What You’ll Do

  • Design and improve core algorithms to understand a shipping container’s journey, even in the face of conflicting information.
  • Model the surprisingly intricate financial mechanics of ocean freight, defending against invalid charges for our users. Your code will have a large financial impact on the day-to-day of the industry.
  • Scale/breakdown our Django application into its next evolution as a data platform.
  • Become a near-expert in the freight industry over time.

What You Bring

  • 3+ year of Python development experience, ideally with Django. Typescript experience is valued as well.
  • 2+ years of database modeling experience for production use cases.
  • Experience with a popular cloud provider (AWS preferred)
  • High attention to detail, being able to execute at a high level with minimal supervision
  • A relentless desire to grow technically and learn about the industry

Compensation

  • Salary: $130k - $180k (salary ranges are determined by role, level, and location).
  • Perks: Comprehensive medical benefits and unlimited PTO.
  • Fun perks:
    • A flexible, international, fun, and dynamic work environment.
    • Exciting on-site team events and activities.
  • Support/Community: Proud to be a Y Combinator-backed company.
