Job description

To be very clear: this job posting is not for madewithlove, but with one of our clients whom we consciously chose to work with.

URBANTZ is a SaaS logistics management software with an optimisation solution for urban deliveries. It supports the complete logistics process of a company and enables real-time traceability throughout the process for management, dispatchers, and the final recipients. The consumers receive exact information about the status of their delivery and the real-time location of their parcel.


What will you be doing?


We are looking for a skilled Mobile engineer with a focus on iOS to help tackle the wonderful challenge that lies in last-mile delivery orchestration & optimization. The product and engineering team is the heart of the company where client challenges are turned into solutions. Product managers will try to understand these challenges as well as possible at which point you and your team will build the best possible solution together. In this team you will:

  • Help build a modern, highly complex, multi-service application that leads to the delivery of millions of packages per year to clients like yourself.

  • Work closely with the product manager to define the how to the why and what of the product.

  • Work with short agile development cycles. At the end of the cycle, the team focuses on technical challenges, gets rid of some technical debt or explores new ideas.


Technical Environment


  • Main mobile technologies: Apps are natively built in Swift and Kotlin. On iOS they are using RxSwift for reactive programming.

  • NodeJS on the backend.

  • Unit-tests: Jest

  • End-to-end tests: Protractor

  • Database: MongoDB

  • The code is stored in GitLab, using its CI/CD capabilities to deploy easily to AWS, Azure, TestFlight, and Firebase.

  • Containerization & orchestration: Docker + Kubernetes

    We work with short agile development cycles. At the end of the cycle, we team up to focus on technical challenges, get rid of some technical debt or explore new ideas.



Job requirements

Please do not hesitate to apply if you do not fulfill all the requirements. Super heroes do not exist. People with talent and passion do.


Human skills


  • You have a positive mindset and enjoy what you do.

  • You like to find ways to constantly improve in what you do.

  • You have a hands-on attitude and get things done.

  • You communicate well and are able to adapt to different people with different backgrounds.


Technical Skills

  • You are not afraid to touch an API endpoint on the server side if necessary.
  • You have a high level of English and can communicate efficiently in speaking and writing.
  • You value quality of work. You know that any shortcut you take today will be a debt to pay in the future (but you understand sometimes taking them makes sense)
  • You stay abreast of developments and best practices within the technologies we use.

Bonus Points

Although our client is open to remote work, you should have a maximum time difference of 1-2h to CET (Brussels time).


What will be offered?

  • Autonomy to define and navigate your own path to success.

  • A competitive salary, the right tools and a range of fringe benefits depending on your country location.

  • An incredibly diverse international team and a company culture that encourages freedom, creativity and collaboration.
