    Revolutionizing Collaboration and Visibility Between Ocean Carriers & Terminal Operators -- In Real Time


    Navis is the leader in Terminal Operations Systems (TOS) with 330 sites, 60% market share of the commercial TOS market. Ocean carriers and terminal operators know that efficiencies can be gained, waste eliminated and revenue increased through better collaboration on vessel stowage planning and execution. The tools and incentives to change these business processes have been lacking -- until now.


    Navis is the global market leader in a multi-billion dollar industry building and implementing marine terminal operating systems and optimization solutions at ports around the world. From Long Beach to Hong Kong, Dubai to Brazil, and Rotterdam to Busan, Navis delivers mission critical enterprise software that is at the heart of running a terminal and services to optimize operations. We are an innovative and profitable logistics software company building mission critical solutions that enable the world economy. Most of the material goods in the world are transported in containers using our software.


    We are culturally organized around the Navis Guiding Principles for Success (GPS). Commitment to our culture is essential for any Navis employee. Our Guiding Principles for Success are Smart Operators, Customer Obsessed, Forging the Future and Better Together.

    • Customer Obsessed: We believe that this is not just business. Success, standing side-by-side with our customers, is personal.
    • Forging the Future: We believe our mandate as market leaders is to blaze a trail into the future, championing the evolution our industry needs
    • Smart Operators: We believe in being nimble enough to respond to the day-to-day, but visionary enough to see the big picture.
    • Better Together: We believe continuous learning, growth and development defines us. We don't pay lip-service to diversity, we leverage it.

We are looking for a passionate technologist with experience building quality software in an agile development environment.
