We are on a mission to advance the world’s transition to an efficient, sustainable and ethical society. To that end, we have created the world’s most advanced shipping container combined with a suite of SaaS container technologies.
Based on the technologies we developed, we’ve spun off a solution to provide accurate, extensive and centralized information on moving shipping containers. That solution is called dokobox.

Dokobox is currently being piloted by several customers, many of them being leading entities in the maritime industry. Our first users are seeing clear benefits from our solution, so we’re industrializing and further scaling distribution to a wider audience.

That’s where you come in.

We need someone with a strong background in scaling SaaS products to help us move from a beta version to a fully commercial one and prepare the dokobox team for growth.

As a key member of the Cloud team, you’d be responsible for developing data-based features and maintaining an industrially-ready software product. On the short and long-term, you’d be involved in setting a strong code basis throughout the entire product life cycle, from ideation, design, and prototyping to execution, testing and deployment in order to support tomorrow’s global logistics system.
