Over the past six years, we’ve grown into a business of over 3000+ Instaboxers united by a single purpose; providing an uncomplicated shipping service - all in order to make everyday life easier.
We think it should be easy to shop online, and therefore we offer millions of customers across Europe a hassle-free and fossil-free shipping experience.
We’re fast, both in terms of parcel delivery and when it comes to growing our business. So far our journey has taken us from Sweden to the rest of Scandinavia and parts of continental Europe, but we have no plans to stop anytime soon. As we continue to expand, the complexity of Instabox grows in parallel. With that in mind, we’re looking for engineers to help pave the future with us!
About the role
You’ll be part of an agile autonomous team working on extending and refining our core systems. Our teams solve a wide array of complex problems, below are some examples.
Capacity management - We believe in quick, exact, and efficient delivery. To know when we can deliver a specific parcel, or how to maximize locker compartment utilization, we need to understand the current parcel delivery capacity in our locker network and how it changes over time. We do things such as modeling consumer pick-up behavior and forecasting future parcel volumes from merchants.
Driver route optimization - Driving is at the core of what we do. Well-planned routes are essential for driver happiness, consumer satisfaction, and our ability to offer sustainable deliveries.
Locker fleet management - Our lockers are equipped with a barebone computer and a 4G modem. They also have a local state since they need to function during a shorter network outage. With a large growing fleet of lockers in multiple countries, we solve problems such as performing safe and secure software roll-outs, efficient state synchronization, or detection of malfunctioning hardware.
Our teams have full ownership of their systems and development processes. You’ll get to impact how we build and develop our services – and with what technology. We aim to foster highly collaborative teams and we’re looking for people who enjoy learning, sharing, and working with other developers to solve new and interesting problems. You'd be joining a small team that values communication and work-life balance.
We’re hiring for multiple teams and we are looking for both senior engineers or you with a couple of years of experience looking for your next move - If you are a skilled problem solver who loves coding and making complex things work, then this is the place for you! At Instabox we value individuals who are keen to learn, and your eagerness to develop your skill set will probably be your strongest asset when joining us. Beyond that we imagine that you have the following:
Experience as a backend developer in a modern tech environment
Working with Golang, or a willingness to learn
Ability to think creatively to solve problems
Good facilitation skills
Proficient in English
Comfortable making decisions around technical system design and architecture
A collaborative approach to getting things done

Experience with Postgres, Redis, or MongoDB (or equivalent database technologies)
Experience with event-driven architecture
Experience with Terraform, Kubernetes, or GCP
