About ParcelParcel

ParcelParcel makes shipping easy. Since the start, our goal has remained the same: to provide the very best service in logistics. Our platform foresees quoting, rates, booking, delivery, tracking, customs documentation and a lot more. The combination of a smart platform together with a team of logistics professionals helps our customers to ship efficiently around the world.


Stack

Our app is composed of a well maintained Symfony(PHP) based backend and an AngularJS front-end that consumes our REST API.

We have the following Tech Stack:

  • Angular JS (migrating to Angular 14)

  • Typescript

  • Bootstrap 5

  • Websockets

  • Docker

  • PHP 7.4 (currently migrating to 8)

  • Symfony 4 (currently migrating to 5)

  • MYSQL 5.7 (currently migrating 8)

  • Live workloads on the Google Cloud Platform


About our Team

We are one of the fastest-growing logistics companies in the Netherlands and Belgium. Simplicity and enthusiasm go hand in hand. Everyone is involved in the end goal, we have short development times and a lot of fun in what we do. We love to play Ping Pong and we love Star Wars Lego. We celebrate successes together and on Fridays, we have a drink.


Your role as a Front-end developer

Currently, we've got a four-person development team, and as we're about to start rebuilding our entire front-end into an Angular 13 app we also need an additional Angular front-end developer to help with building the cutting-edge architecture and create a high-quality maintainable code-base with front-end tests in Angular, establishing best practices. That will be you.

As for the front-ender, you will be joining our core development team. You will work alongside our other developers building the new platform.


You will build on a platform that is growing fast and to which new features are always being developed. Your job is a nice mixture of helping plan and architect the new platform (and in the future new features), building those new features, refactoring and improving existing features to the new platform in typescript, and some fixes and support of the current AngularJS platform while we build.

Your opinion and ideas really matter at ParcelParcel.

  • Participate in all aspects of the development cycle, from architecture to implementations, best practices and tests
