Container Shipping: An industry with huge potential to make a difference
90% of all goods globally are transported through a container. The largest container vessels are 400 meters long and can transport more than 23,000 containers at a time. The container shipping industry is the backbone and enabler of global trade, but it is struggling. The industry suffers from operational inefficiencies as 50%+ of all container vessels globally are delayed coming into port, and key planning processes are done manually on a global scale. This results in high operational costs, lost revenue, and unnecessarily high greenhouse gas emissions. At Portchain, we work closely with our customers to reduce operational complexity and optimize planning through software and innovative analytics.
Portchain is an exciting fast growing tech company where you will work with an incredible team on applications with a truly global impact. We are therefore seeking a talented Principal Software Engineer to join our expanding software engineering team that uses data, mathematical modeling, machine learning, and optimization to support our users in getting full transparency on their operations and make better planning decisions
This is a role that involves architecture and hands on programming. You will support the product’s technical roadmap, and take part in the development process by working with the development team to design and build advanced features into our products and ensure these are robust and reliable in 24/7 operations.
