Job description

Location: Seattle, Washington, United States (Remote)

Logixboard is a white-labeled customer experience software that is transforming how the $2 trillion freight forwarding industry operates.

In a highly competitive and technologically antiquated industry undergoing rapid digitalization, we are providing freight forwarders with the only white-labeled and integrated customer experience software available to the market today.

Our software enables freight forwarders to deliver a world-class digital experience to their customers, which propels them far ahead of their competition and dramatically increases customer retention and sales.

Our customers absolutely love our platform, and we’re experiencing tremendous growth both in new customers and in funding, with over $50 million in capital raised to date.

About You:

Logixboard provides visibility and tracking in the freight forwarding industry. In the context of a very disrupted supply chain, our ability to provide accurate estimates in near real-time, throughout the journey of a shipment is critical. To that end, we acquire data from multiple 3rd party sources for all modes of transport – ocean, air, rail, and road – to cover the whole lifecycle of a shipment.

You Will:

In this role, you will take ownership for the definition and implementation of multiple components in our data acquisition pipeline. Considering we acquire data from multiple 3rd party systems and APIs, you will be challenged to process that data and normalize it in a consistent way.

Your responsibilities will include:

Developing system integrations across multiple technologies and providers to provide customers with a near real-time tracking and information

Modeling and normalizing the data into our system across all sources to provide a consistent user experience across data providers

Owning features through and through, from requirements reviews with our product team, implementation, infrastructure evolution all the way to production

Finally, in this role, you will be responsible for mentoring other team members.

We Are Looking For:

At least 5 years of experience with backend development and data processing

Somebody looking for a new backend data challenge at large scale. Ideally, you have dealt with (sometimes flaky) 3rd party data providers and normalized that data into a larger system.

Experience owning specific components in a system and understanding how they impact the platform/solution end to end.

Experience with cloud-native services in AWS such as Lambda, Kinesis, S3, RD and the general compute infrastructure.

Experience with DBs at scale (we use Postgres and Dynamo!)

An emphatic, collaborative and consultative work style.

Our stack is NodeJS + Typescript + SQL, so experience is a bonus, but not a must.

The salary range for this role is $150,978 – $183,210, plus equity. Where your pay would fall within that range will be based on 1) relevant experience, knowledge, and skills, as demonstrated through the interview process, 2) by considering parity with current LXB team members, and 3) current market data.


We are a remote first company, meaning, you can work from home, from the mountains, from the beach, or wherever you feel like getting work done.

Since our teams span across North America, LATAM, Australia, and the UK it is important for us to make it a priority to see one another. Logixboard will host a yearly in-person company retreat and our teams get together for in-person offsites at least once a year.

Logixboard covers 100% of premiums for Medical, Dental, and Vision for you, with 75% of premiums covered for your loved ones. We’ll also offer paid life insurance and Long Term Disability.

12 weeks parental paid time plus a $2,500 parental bonus to support you and your family.

Our 401(k) plan makes it easy to save for retirement and you can contribute your tax free dollars from day 1.

In addition to statutory and Federal holidays, we offer our teammates Flexible Time Off (average is 4-5 weeks) that can also be used to observe holidays that are important to you.

A yearly Learning and Development budget of $500 to find your own way to continue your professional development.

To get your office set up, you will receive the basics (laptop, monitor, keyboard and a mouse), plus a one time WFH budget of $1,000 for you to get the other things you need in order to do your best work.

At Logixboard, we believe that people come first and we are committed to building teams that represent a variety of backgrounds, perspectives and skills. We highly encourage under-represented and traditionally marginalized communities to apply. Together, we will create and maintain working and learning environments that are inclusive, equitable and welcoming. If you require assistance or accommodations in the application or interview process, please contact [email protected].

We thank all the candidates who have shown interest in our company, but only shortlisted candidates will be contacted.
