Our CTO Tristan has already gathered an experienced product development team of backend, frontend and QA experts who are working with passion & fun on our B2B platform to bring the digital transformation in the metals industry forwards and help to reduce costs and CO2 emissions in the whole industry.

We had a fantastic journey so far. In order to write the next chapter of our story, we are looking for motivated support for our team in Dusseldorf or remote.

We are not perfect (yet) but we get a little better every day :)
