If you're a whiz on the backend and your travel senses are tingling, we think you need to take a look at what Xeneta is up to in Oslo. It might be right up your alley if motivated teams and industry-changing ambitions are your thing!
Xeneta is the leading ocean freight rate benchmarking and market intelligence platform with the world's largest database of ocean freight rates reporting in real time and on demand. Our main office is in Oslo, Norway with sales offices in Hamburg, Germany and establishing a presence on the U.S. east coast, currently New York.
Our company has been touted one of the hottest new companies in the Nordics, as well as one of the leading European companies transforming the shipping and global logistics supply chain industries by Forbes. In 2016, we were named Nordic Startup of the Year - Norway.
We are a little over 35 people looking to double our size in 2017. We, Xenetians, come from over 16 different countries and from all walks of life. We have collected the brightest, wittiest and the downright best humans in the whole wide world to innovate, modernize and rattle the global container shipping and logistics industry. It's no easy task, but we're game, and we've already made enormous strides.
We are always looking for top people who have what it takes to join our journey and impact the shipping industry. We know the meaning of work-life balance and flexibility, and the importance of continuous learning. We treat Xenetians like adults and in return expect everyone to act like it.
We are currently looking for back-end developers to help us process the ever-growing amounts of data we receive from our customers. Our company is one of the fastest-growing tech companies in the industry, and this position is an excellent career opportunity for the right person.
