Software Engineer

Over $20 trillion worth of goods—the items we use, wear and consume every day—flow through increasingly complex global supply chains annually. Alloy is a supply chain synchronization platform that connects manufacturers, suppliers, logistics providers, distributors, and retailers, giving businesses end-to-end visibility with fast and actionable insights. Our customers—companies the make, move, and sell products—use Alloy to get the right products to the right place at the right time with greater agility, efficiency, and effectiveness than ever before. We work with companies of all sizes in many industries, ranging from Fortune 100 enterprises to fast-growing, innovative manufacturers.

We are early stage, well funded by leading VCs, and growing fast. Our small team studied at top institutions including MIT, Stanford, Waterloo, Caltech, ETH Zurich, Carnegie Mellon, and Harvard and has diverse backgrounds and experience in analytics, large-scale enterprise software, retail, and financial technology. There are many challenging problems to solve in this complex industry, and a huge opportunity for modern software to make the global supply chain operate more effectively.

About the Role

We're a Silicon Valley-based startup with offices in San Francisco and Vancouver, and we're looking to open an R&D office in Berlin. We're looking to build a team with a focus on frontend engineering in Berlin, so if you're right at home with React and TypeScript and don't run away at the sight of Java and Python in the backend either, you might be the engineer we're looking for. There are no deep layers of management at Alloy - we're looking for self-starters who are able to prioritize effectively and grow fast beyond their initial role.

About You

As we're looking to open up the Berlin site from ground up, we're looking for engineers who are comfortable with working on challenging engineering problems in a small team who are willing to take on a big role in building up an engineering site. This is an exciting opportunity to play a key role in engineering at a startup whose clients already include several multi-billion dollar businesses.
