Engineering at BlueCargo
Engineering team and processes

Our product development team is composed by a product manager (one of the two co-founders), a product designer and the engineering team. We use a Kanban process to stay agile and flexible on new priorities and customer feedback. We still operate on two week cycles and each cycle ends with a demo meeting where each engineer can show off the work they've completed. We use Pull Request on GitHub to conduct code reviews and have a QA engineer to help validate quality and conduct regression test on the product.

Technical Challenges

We are building an unprecedented scrapping tool in the supply chain industry to gather data from hundreds of website every 5 minutes. The engineering team challenges every day on building a powerful, scalable, fast and reliable engine to then push data to customers.

Projects you might work on
  • You would get to work on the architecture of the app to overtake the above challenge.

  • You would build and participate in the creation of the next version of the platform that will be an operational tool to optimise trips of a trucking company. It's really a role of product engineer to help the rest of the product team make the good choices.

  • You would help refacto the processes to improve how engineers work: CI/CD, pull requests, deployment strategy, different environnements (testing, QA, staging and prod), etc.

Working at BlueCargo
  1. Think big... There is no such thing as impossible! We don’t stay in our comfort zone, we take up challenges and evolve. Because believing a solution paves the way to solution, we want to believe we can reach the highest levels.

  2. ...Act small Bias for action - Because the number of iterations we are able to make in a fixed period of time, will define our probability to make it. The best way to know if a solution is working is to do it and test it.

So we are looking for the following personal qualities : - Autonomous [must have] : knows how to prioritize & how to handle his time. - Start-up engineering mindset / Adaptation : knows when to build fast and when to build to scale without overengineering. Adapts quickly to changing priorities and conditions. - Efficiency : able to produce significant output with minimal effort. Knows how to work under some time pressure & deadlines. - Logic : engineer mindset, scientific way to solve problems. - Strong communication skills : need to be a very good communicant, people-person, good relation and fit with all the product & tech team + founders
