An employee form Maritime Optima working at his desk.

Experienced React/React Native developer

We are expanding our team, and we are looking for an experienced front-end developer who can strengthen our tech team and wants to be part of an exciting maritime startup located in Oslo.

About Us

We established Maritime Optima AS in April 2018, and we are privately funded by serial tech entrepreneurs and supported by Innovation Norway. We were awarded the Copernicus price in 2018 and the Microsoft Startup program in October 2019. We are working closely with some of the largest global ship-owning communities while developing Maritime Optima.

We develop and distribute two software products:

  • ShipIntel; A flexible and affordable team software for any company involved in maritime business.
  • ShipAtlas; The one and only app for individuals and consumers interested in following ships

ShipAtlas was launched in August 2020 as an MVP product on the web. In February 2022, we had an integrated mobile and web store. In June 2022, we created a new mobile design; during the autumn of 2022, we created a new design on the web. Today, ShipAtlas has more than 200,000 users.

We launched ShipIntel in October 2022, and today ShipIntel offers 10 modules.

  • Both products are based on real-time Big Data (AIS), and we use many exciting new technologies and algorithms to help maritime decision-makers make better decisions.
  • Both products are born global.
  • Both products are Freemium business concepts.
  • Both products are growing rapidly.
  • Both products are developed based on user feedback.

We are expanding our team and are looking for an experienced full-stack developer who wants to be part of an exciting and solid-funded maritime startup located in Oslo.

In Maritime Optima, we’re building a software product for the shipping industry, helping customers make more informed choices. This is mainly done through a solid data foundation and with manual enrichment by users, which they can share with teams. By intuitively presenting the data and making it possible to “play” with it, we give our customers the ability to utilize their company’s collective knowledge.

To build this software, we need a great team ourselves! Our team has solid domain knowledge and skilled developers, and we are looking for an experienced full-stack developer to strengthen our tech team.

What are we looking for?

We are looking for someone with higher (3-5 years) relevant education and more than 4 years of relevant work experience. We want you to help us with technical and business choices, so communication skills and the ability to see/find tradeoffs between options is important. You should also have professional working proficiency in English, preferably also Norwegian.

As front end technologies, we are working with React and React Native, JavaScript, and CSS. We use Webflow as our CMS and Figma for design/mockups. But we are curious, and we frequently test new tools and methods.  

The qualifications we are looking for:

  • Substantial experience in implementing a visual design.
  • Higher relevant education, or equivalent work experience.
  • Experience and knowledge of universal design and performance requirements.
  • Passionate about creating unique solutions across disciplines and you are happy to share your expertise.

  • You are a driving force for project implementation and the ability to get people with you.
  • Professional integrity and dare to stand in discussions.
  • Excellent communication skills for both communication and enthusiasm.
  • Professional working proficiency in English, preferably also Norwegian.

Of course, you don’t need to know all of this to apply! But you should have a desire to learn and grow with us.

What can we offer?

Since we are a startup, we should not brag too much what large companies have in place. However, we have an exciting tech environment, we work with innovative and new technologies, and we have complex problems to solve for the maritime industry.

Our dream is to develop a product that makes a difference for the environment, decision-making, and creating more robust and maybe change some of the existing maritime value chains. You will play a key part in helping the company grow, help shape the business and play a key part with the team in making key decisions etc.

  • Competitive terms, including insurance and pension schemes, and share options.
  • As we scale there will be many career development opportunities
  • Cross-disciplinary Scrum team.
  • We organize internal professional evenings.
  • We intend to organize meet-ups, conferences, and breakfast seminars.
  • Located in friendly maritime premises at Aker Brygge.
  • Free lunch and fascinating discussions. Free gym at newly refurbished training rooms.
  • Friendly social environment and a skilled team with high spirits.

If you find this of interest, we want to hear from you!
