Senior Frontend Engineer

  • Bucharest, Romania
  • Full-time
  • Department: Product & Engineering

Company Description

We are disrupting a typically stagnant environment by connecting companies of all sizes and providing them with the platform and network needed to create value from old processes like procurement, invoicing, payments, and workflow. We recognize that business is both messy and social - two revelations that have driven the development of Tradeshift, a platform for all your business interactions.

Tradeshift Culture. Our culture began day one when three Danes poured their brains, heart, and guts into creating a platform that could connect every business in the world. We expect each colleague to approach their work with the same amount of pride and passion. TradeShifters come from various backgrounds and nations, and we all thrive off challenging the status quo. We take pride in nurturing employee happiness, encouraging personal development, and welcoming teammates from all walks of life.

Team. You will be part of the Platform organisation in the Global Product & Engineering. The Platform organisation has its main focus on building core systems and products that are used by all users on the tradeshift platform, and APIs and libraries used by our own engineering departments building products like Pay and Buy, as well as our customers and partners for custom integrations. 

Working in Platform is all about scale, working with systems with millions of transactions every day, and finding solutions to complex problems - it's fun and challenging.
