Senior Software Engineer - Occitanie

Full-time job
/ Hybrid
As Amazon is pouring billions into its e-commerce infrastructure, independent brands are struggling to offer the same level of trust and experience to their customers.
They're now faced with a difficult choice: hop onto the Amazon train or lose customers every day.

Bigblue helps independent brands fight back. Together with companies like Stripe and Shopify, we're arming the direct-to-consumer rebellion.
Shopify powers their e-shop, Stripe makes payment trivial, and we, Bigblue store and deliver their products around the world.

Founded in 2018 we have raised $18M and we are now more than 80 employees working from our offices in Paris, Madrid, London and remotely.

We are building a company of high performers driven by the ambition of creating a global fulfilment leader.
Our day-to-day job in the Product Team is to offer pragmatic solutions to complex problems, that empower hundreds of brands and help them thrive.
We don't settle for average and we extend excellence to everything we do, especially building our product.
Never done learning, we consistently seek progress and impact in every action.

We are opening an engineering office in Occitanie (France) and are looking for senior software engineers willing to work on software and tech solutions at scale from there. The idea is to start working remotely while we open the office, then come in a few days a month to socialize and work in person with your peers.

Come join an ambitious engineering team that is shaping a new, frictionless logistics experience.
