Job Description

WebCargo digitizes global freight sales for over 2,000 of the world’s largest logistics providers and carriers. Or, in plain English, we help move the world, offering incredible technology that powers almost a third of the global air cargo market.

We’re not alone either. WebCargo is a proud part of the Freightos Group, a logistics technology company that aims to make global trade frictionless. That’s not cheap, so we’ve raised nearly $100 million from investors like GE Ventures, the Singapore Exchange and Aleph, making and have gotten the BBC, TechCrunch, and the Wall Street Journal excited about freight.

Turns out it’s kind of a big deal. As one of the largest tech platforms for a huge industry (the phone or computer you’re reading this on was, after all shipped), we’ve been crushing it with double-digit growth, year after year.

This year has been an incredible year for us, full of successes and accompanied by a great growth of our development teams, and we still want to keep growing! That's why we are looking for PHP Software Engineers who want to join the challenge of digitizing an entire freight industry. And you can do it remotely from anywhere in Spain 😉

  • We believe that employees who get better make us all better. We strive for professional development and continuous learning. Apart from career support and guidance, you’ll be entitled to get an annual training budget for personal and professional development. No, you can’t use it on cool socks. But most other things go.
  • Competitive salary and participation in the Long Term Incentive Plan (LTIP) of the Freightos Group.
  • Ticket restaurant, Private Health Insurance and Flexible remuneration options for nursery, training and transport.
  • Full-time position. Flexible schedule & intensive working hours on Fridays so that we have a long weekend 🙂
