Backend Engineer - Java/Kotlin

Salary Competitive

About the role
You’ll be part of an agile autonomous team working on extending and refining our core systems. Our teams solve a wide array of complex problems, below are some examples.

Capacity management - We believe in quick, exact, and efficient delivery. To know when we can deliver a specific parcel, or how to maximize locker compartment utilization, we continuously adapt and gain knowledge about of the current parcel delivery capacity in our locker network and how it changes over time. We use machine learning to model consumer pick-up behavior and forecast future parcel volumes from merchants.

Driver route optimization - Driving is at the core of what we do. Well-planned routes are essential for driver happiness, consumer satisfaction, and our ability to offer sustainable deliveries.

Locker fleet management - Our lockers are equipped with a tailor-made computer, a 4G modem with an intuitive interface. With a large growing fleet of lockers in multiple countries, we solve problems such as performing safe and secure software roll-outs, inventory management, and detection of malfunctioning hardware.
