Ofload · Engineering Manager - PHP Backend

If you'd like to join one of the hottest scale-ups in Australia right now (just raised $20m Series A at $100m+ valuation!) - Ofload is the place for you. We're interested to hear specifically from people with 6+ years designing, developing, testing, deploying in any language or stack****

About us

Did you know there are 50,000 freight carriers in Australia? We connect this "long tail" of trucking capacity to Australia's largest shippers such as FMCG companies. We use technology to efficiently allocate supply and demand, and thereby eliminate the enormous waste in the industry. Every third truck on Australian roads today drives empty - imagine the environmental impact you can have!

About the opportunity

We currently have great traction, with product-market fit superbly proven during the recent annual Christmas peak in the logistics industry. As a result (and with fresh new funding), our technology team is set to triple in size (!) and we are looking for an enthusiastic senior software engineer with an emphasis on backend. Our software team is 80% remote (South Asia and Eastern Europe)

Our stack:

  • Backend: Postgres, PHP (Symphony or Laravel)
  • Frontend: ReactJS, Javascript, jQuery
  • Infrastructure: Jenkins, Kubernetes, Kafka, Docker, AWS
