Job description

Who are we ?

💡 Our mission

OVRSEA is a next-generation multimodal freight forwarder committed to simplifying & optimizing international freight management through technology. OVRSEA provides its clients with industry expertise and high end-to-end visibility to meet their needs on sea, air, road and rail over all transport stages, from loading to customs declarations.

Founded in 2017, OVRSEA currently supports +700 clients from its offices in Paris, Miami, Barcelona, Milano and is continuing its growth in 2024 hiring people internationally!

⭐️ Our culture

One of Ovrsea's great strengths is its ability to create a healthy environment in which team members feel fulfilled and comfortable. Five values structure our culture, which are :

- Pedagogy : many of the tech members have learned to code at Ovrsea. We foster a teaching culture so that all members can keep learning no matter how experienced they are.

- Caring : we strive to create a humane environment where people feel at ease while being able to continuously grow,

- Excellence : we give much importance to writing clean code and development best practices,

- Questioning : we’re always looking for ways to improve our code, infrastructure and product vision,

- Reliability : we are all committed to doing things right

Above all, we want to recruit people who are aligned with these values and who are committed to living them on a daily basis.

💻 The tech team

The tech team is at the forefront of developing two pivotal products:

- Atlas: a groundbreaking Transport Management System designed exclusively for internal use, revolutionizing how we organize shipments across the globe and streamline various tasks. Being an internal tool, it offers us the flexibility to rapidly iterate, allowing for extensive testing and immediate visibility of our work's impact. This agile framework not only accelerates our operational efficiency but also enhances our ability to respond to shipping demands with precision and speed.

- OneChain: a new Transport Management System for our customers. Most companies manage their shipments using Excel and paperwork, causing mental load and time loss that can be optimized with this SaaS. The market is vast, and the project has already secured several clients within a few months.

Our team's structure consists of two specialized squads, each comprising 2 to 4 skilled Software Engineers and a dedicated Product Manager. These squads are each aligned with a distinct business objective, such as automatic pricing, sales activation and the development of OneChain among others.

Our Software Engineering approach is deeply influenced by the methodologies outlined in Accelerate. We implement a robust and efficient workflow, enabling 10 to 20 daily deployments for instance. This strategy significantly shortens our feedback loop. Moreover, we’re working very closely with our end-users, both operations teams and clients, leading to tangible and impactful outcomes.
