Independent Contractor
Who we are:
We are industry veterans and data-scientists using innovative technology to fearlessly reinvent the future of freight. As the ‘nerds of logistics’, we seek intelligence in data to solve deep rooted inefficiencies in the industry. We give shippers, brokers and carriers access to our data connections that link supply and demand and a suite of award-winning solutions to strike the perfect balance of cost and service. We’re creating a more efficient and environmentally responsible way to move more with less.

Where we are: 
Loadsmart was founded in New York and is currently headquartered in Chicago, IL. Our teams operate remotely from different parts of the United States as well as in several locations across Latin America.

Who you are:
You are curious to impact a 700 billion dollar industry of logistics. You are a first-rate software engineer, with experience building products from the browser to the database. You are passionate about developing and you value quality and code maintainability. You like working in a hands-on environment and enjoy teamwork. You are pragmatic and do not pick technologies without considering the benefits for the product and business.  You are a thinker and problem solver, not a requirement follower.

The role:
We are looking for a Fullstack Engineer to work remotely. You'll join us in obsessing about transformational technology as part of our Load Operations Squad Group. You should have experience building software from the browser to the database. Our technology stack is based on React for the frontend and Python/Django for the backend.

The squad:
We are a growing team of passionate engineers, designers and product managers from all levels. Our mission is to establish a new benchmark for operational efficiency. We have a collaborative work environment, where engineers and other team members from different departments pool their knowledge together to help each other to grow. We value interaction and collaboration more than just coding. 

Key Responsibilities:

    • Together with other team members, be responsible for the whole lifecycle of our products and features, from the conception, specification, development, testing, and maintenance.
    • Build modern, efficient, modular, and tested user interfaces using React.
    • Build scalable backend solutions using Python and Django.
    • Discuss good practices for software development and feel comfortable suggesting contributions to build our set of internal guidelines and shared code.
    • Review Pull Requests from the other members of the team.

Qualifications:

    • Communication. You’re very comfortable communicating in English (both written and spoken) - you will work in an international team with native and non-native English speakers.
    • Teamwork. You like to work as a team more than solve problems by yourself.
    • Frontend. 2+ years of experience with UI development, having in-depth knowledge about Javascript, HTML5, and CSS. React is a plus.
    • Backend. Experience building backend solutions in any language. Interest in working with Python.
    • Passion. Be passionate about creating clean, highly maintainable, and structured code, supported by unit and integration tests.
    • Troubleshooting. You're good at identifying the source of bugs, know how to dig into the code that may be causing the outstanding issue, and work to resolve any issues that come up
    • Curiosity. You're keen on learning new technologies and tools as well as evaluating their pros and cons. You're a pragmatic programmer. You ask questions and are eager to learn more.
    • Bachelor's degree in Computer Science or in a related field is preferable but not mandatory.

What you will find here:

    • Generous Stock Option Plan
    • Competitive Compensation
    • Building a Rapidly-Growing Tech Company
    • International Environment / Career
    • Ability to Work with Cutting-Edge Technology
    • Access to an Online Learning Platform
