Who is GoBoat?

GoBoat came to life because we wanted to provide unique experiences and unforgettable memories on the water to as many people as possible. We provide a service for people to rent a boat, and go sailing on the water in some of the most beautiful harbours in the world.


We’re a young and agile team, that work closely together in a fun environment, making sure the daily life of our customers and partners run as smoothly as possible. 


We are currently present in 9 locations across the world, including Copenhagen, London and Melbourne. Right now we’re in the process of accelerating our growth by scaling into new locations, but also by introducing new concepts. To accommodate that we need to expand our organisation, including our tech team.

You will become part of the leadership team and be the driving force in expanding the tech-team over the coming year(s).
