90% of everything we eat, wear or use is shipped…

But freight is stuck in the ’90s. The Freightos Marketplace and freight rate management platform are game-changers.

And we’re always looking for passionate team players to help us.

Senior Software Development Engineer

Jerusalem, Israel · Full-time

About The Position

Freightos is bringing freight online with the world’s largest global freight marketplace. Almost everything we eat, wear or use is shipped or flown by the global freight industry, but its technology is stuck in the ’90s….and we’re changing that. Beyond helping thousands of top tier companies worldwide, we’ve raised nearly $100 million from investors like GE Ventures, the Singapore Exchange and Aleph, and have gotten the BBC, TechCrunch, and the Wall Street Journal excited in the process..


Changing global trade starts with shipping great code.


We’re looking for Senior Software Development Engineers (Sr. SDE) to join our growing Jerusalem R&D team (yup, if(livesIn.equals(“Jerusalem”) commute = false;). The perfect candidate (aka you) can drive stellar results in the cloud, building V1 and V2 products that are so amazing they give us goosebumps.


Come ready for a challenge and don’t be fooled by container ships; this is rocket-science technology.


You’ll drive software architecture and design patterns for incredibly complex features that require guru-level Computer Science and high-level programming language expertise. Not exactly your “Hello Freight World” job. Freightos sets a high bar to meet internal and customer commitments; you’re the type of engineer that pushes the bar higher, cultivating drive consensus like a bonsai tree. Not to mention leveraging your experience with SLA mission-critical systems, microservices and APIs that scream modularity. From bug-zapping to analytics and on to problem-solving, you have the skills needed to bring a trillion dollar industry online.


  • You’ll lead software development of major features and systems (architect, design, build and maintain). Maybe we’ll call you Captain Code.
  • You will promote clean coding inside your team and beyond.
  • We deliver features continuously, and therefore your code will include the appropriate automated tests.
  • Contribute throughout the development and deployment cycle across the R&D organization.
  • With over a million lines of code, ship happens. You’ll troubleshoot and solve complex problems and introduce mechanisms, new designs and best practices to prevent the recurrence of the problem.
  • Freight never slows down; our SDEs participate in the on-call rotation.



  • Bachelor or Master’s degree in Computer Science or a related field.
  • Excellent programming skills, ideally as a polyglot or at least in Java or Node
  • Excellent Computer Science fundamentals, object-oriented design, data structures, algorithm design, problem solving, and complexity analysis.
  • Excellent communication, self-organization, time management and interpersonal skills.
  • Advanced English skillz, yo, with excellent reading, speaking and writing skills.


Preferred Qualifications:

  • Good knowledge of Google/AWS cloud infrastructure and platforms (load balancers, storage, databases).
  • Good prior work building and configuring monitoring tools.
  • Experience designing tools to automate operational processes.
