We are seeking a self-starting frontend/fullstack developer to build solutions that will help the maritime industry become more efficient and accelerate towards a low-carbon future.

This is a high impact role in a small organization where you will have the opportunity to shape the direction of the solutions we are building, and work on solving big problems, free of cumbersome processes of larger organizations. You will work closely with the founders, architect and customers, to build new applications and tools to help maritime businesses transition.

About the company and where you fit in

On ships today there is an incredible amount of data from different machines and the crew, about equipment performance, what is happening on the vessel, unexpected changes to plans, tasks being performed, and many more.

For most of the maritime industry, this data is siloed and unstructured, meaning that it cannot be accessed effectively. However, maritime technology startup Onboard makes accessing this data possible. The Onboard Platform is the only solution in the industry that collects data 24/7 from every machine and human on a vessel, and makes it available in real time via an API, to anyone on or off shore.

But while the core platform is already being used by a number of maritime businesses, there are countless new possibilities for applications and innovations to be built on top of the data. This is where you come in - iterating on existing apps, coming up with and building your own solutions, and innovating for clients and prospects.

About you

This role will suit someone who likes working fast and creatively with minimal supervision and lots of room to improvise and think outside the box. Maybe you have worked in a big organization but want to have fewer meetings and take more ownership over what you build. Or maybe you are a freelancer or working in a small team, but looking to build solutions that will have a genuinely big impact in creating a smarter, more efficient world.

We are located in Rotterdam, but you don't need to be! This role can be fully remote, hybrid, or on site. International applicants are welcome to apply.

Concepts and tooling you will be working with

Edge computing, event sourcing, Kafka, microservices, Kubernetes, TimescaleDB, API Federation, GraphQL, progressive web app, Web Components.

About Onboard

Onboard is built to make the global maritime industry leaner, cleaner, and more innovative. Our platform powers the next generation of ship-to-shore communication by interfacing with every machine, system, and sensor on board, and connecting them and the crew to the cloud and supply chain. Organizations working with Onboard today include Shell, Boluda, Wagenborg, Peterson, Kotug, Acta Marine, and more.
