Are you someone who likes to write software in an attic that never sees use? No? That’s nice, because our client is not looking for someone like that.
Our clients company was founded two years ago. Since September 2015, they have been operational as the first Dutch part-finance delivery platform, and after using all our savings, we have closed a successful crowdfunding campaign. By the end of 2016 we were selected by Startupbootcamp from 350 companies for the E-commerce accelerator program we have completed recently.
Due to the new opportunities that occurred during the Startup Boot Camp program, we are looking for a Ruby software engineer who wants to strengthen our team.
About our client
Daily, thousands of purchases from webshops, marketplace and auction sites must be retrieved because it does not fit into a package. In addition, a courier or carrier is relatively expensive or not possible (size, weight, fragility, etc.). When picking up his own Marketplace purchase (set of wheels) in 2014, one of our clients founders wondered if one of the 8 million drivers in the Netherlands did not want to do this for him?
That was the birth of their company: Delivering Anything, Anytime! They help consumers and webshops to send items that do not fit in a package. They do this by connecting them with 8 million drivers in the Netherlands. On the one hand, every driver can add some value. On the other hand, you have your lamp, dining chairs or iPad flexible, cheap (60-80%) and personally delivered with a few clicks on your smartphone.
