Instabox is a fast-growing tech scaleup that is on the journey to change the logistics industry. We aim to always deliver our service as perfectly and efficiently as possible and this is the reason why our customers keep returning; we care about them and each of their parcels.
Over the course of the past five years, we have grown to a business of over 1500 Instaboxers united by a single purpose; providing the smoothest shipping experience known to man. We think it should be easy to shop online and offer our customers a fast and hassle-free shipping service – all in order to make everyday life easier. We allow our customers to shop from any of our e-commerce partners and pick up their products in one of our conveniently located Instaboxes. We’re fast, both in terms of parcel delivery and when it comes to growing our business.
As we expand our business we find ourselves in need of a Principal Engineer who wants to take on the responsibility for the future direction of the Instabox tech platform.
”the fastest delivery in the industry”
As a Principal Engineer you manage a few domains, supported by corresponding development teams, future-proofing the tech platform in close collaboration with the teams. Reporting to our Vice President of Engineering you will work alongside peers who will have the same goal as you, which is the continued improvement and efficiency of the tech platform. You will facilitate growth and learning, this may require you to adopt a very hands-on approach but equally important; to get out of the way when needed.
Your tasks will include, but not be limited to:
In order to be successful in this role, we believe that you will have several years of experience working as a developer, architect, tech-lead or similar, with a hands-on approach. You are seasoned from many years of building and maintaining applications over their lifecycle. You have achieved results by improving solutions and possess the ability to make strategy come alive by engaging and inspiring others. That you are well versed in lean and agile thinking is a given and you have previous experience in leading people.
When we call your references they will tell us about your ability to motivate those around you intrinsically, communicate effectively and always keep the end goal in sight. They will highlight your capability to look at the big picture while being able to zoom in on the details that will allow you to reach your goals.
The chance to be part of something truly amazing and fun. In this role, you will have a tangible impact on the way that our products develop and the freedom to try new things and ways of working with your teams. You will work closely with our CTO, the other Principal Engineers, and with Tech Leads who are all passionate about building and improving our products. We can promise you that you will be challenged, pushed to develop your skillset, and have the opportunity to work with dedicated, smart, and humble people.
The journey ahead is what excites every Instaboxer working here today and we are just getting started. Then there is the compensation package, benefits, centrally located office, etc. but we’ll get to that in due time.
