Frontend Engineer, Apps Team

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

Company Description

Tradeshift is disrupting a stale e-invoicing, procure to pay, and financial solutions market. We are 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. Tradeshift is redefining an enterprise space that has seen little change in many years. We recognize that business is messy and business is social. Understanding these two facts drives the development of Tradeshift - a platform for all your business interactions. 

About The Apps Team: 

There's no single answer for a company aiming to consolidate and digitize their supply chain. With Tradeshift, individual pluggable applications work together to cover the different aspects of a business such as procurement, supplier risk, sustainability, finance, etc.  These widely varied apps support different business needs and build on a strong integrated core that enables supplier connectivity and collaboration between and inside of companies, all in real time. Apps can also provide external connectivity and integration with a company’s existing systems and programs which greatly accelerates solution deployment. Best of all, the platform can leverage what is unique about a business to provide a significant and sustainable competitive advantage. We believe that for something as critical as a company's supply chain, industry standard practices are just not good enough. Tradeshift’s App Platform takes what is unique about a company’s supply chain and turns it into a sustainable competitive advantage.
