About Us

We are a fast-growing tech company building an innovative solution transforming the last mile delivery business. Founded in 2015, we grew our revenue 5 fold last year and our solution is now used to deliver thousands of packages around the world. 

We have just completed our Series A fundraising round, a significant step in becoming the European leader in last mile logistics technology.

Our mission is to make last mile logistics more sustainable for retailers and transport operators by improving their operational efficiency. We bring value to the retail and logistics sector by providing a better client service and help them save on deliveries. 


 Your journey at URBANTZ

As a Platform Engineer, your goal is to help us build an internal platform to speed up the delivery of our product team. For that you will:

  • Implement, influence and guide the platform development to be highly operable and efficient.
  • Collaborate with the engineering team to define requirements of our technical platform.
  • Document in template and guidelines everything about our process to help establish and maintain technical best practices across our team.
  • Be responsible for the availability of the platform services (Platform as a Service), the product teams being your customers.
  • Design, develop, test, deploy, maintain, and improve software as a secure, scalable, performant, and fault-tolerant solution across a multi-cloud architecture.
About our stack:

We migrated from AWS ECS to Azure using Kubernetes for container-orchestration. Our main data store is MongoDB hosted on Mongo Atlas, but we also use Elasticsearch for some corner-case full-text search needs. Our backend and API code runs on Node.js, while the front-end web application is written in AngularJS. The main mobile driver app uses Ionic and Cordova. For our most recent mobile solution to ship goods from stores, we've decided to experiment with React Native.

Our toolset also counts with single-command, build & deploy tasks for both production and staging environments, working along with GitLab CI. We use Protractor for the end-to-end testing and Jest for the back-end unit testing.
