AnyVan

AnyVan makes moving anything, anywhere easier, more affordable and greener for everyone.  With Over 8 million customers across the UK and Europe since our launch over a decade ago, we’re proud to be known as the largest, fastest growing tech company in the logistics industry.
Like many popular marketplaces, we’re asset light – i.e., we don’t own any vehicles or employ any drivers.  We work with our transport partners and use technology to disrupt the entire delivery and moving process and to optimise the most efficient journeys.
Sustainability is a core part of AnyVan’s mission and reducing environmental impact has always been at the heart of our business. We’re proud to say we’ve achieved carbon-neutral status on all our transport moves, and we won’t stop here.
We’ve continuously celebrated exciting growth and key milestones, a key highlight being a £125mn investment from Vitruvian partners to reinforce our position as the UK market leader.   We’re expecting the next 5 years to be even more exciting.
Our platform might be driven by technology, but we know it’s our people that make AnyVan a great place to work.  We think big, we think differently, and we empower our colleagues to make a difference. We know good ideas can come from anyone in any role – so if you’re a self-starter looking to ‘move’ your career forward – Team AnyVan would love to hear from you.
The new scale AnyVan will be operating at will mean bigger technology challenges and a need to find ever more efficient ways for technology to support our ability to fulfil deliveries and provide seamless experiences for our transport partners and consumers.  There’s no shortage of complex scale, user experience, data, and logistics problems to solve that will keep our team technologically and intellectually challenged!
The team is highly collaborative, organised as cross-functional squads with product, data engineering, data science and software engineering working in partnership to deliver value to our customers.  We run 100% in AWS, with high levels of automation, infrastructure as code and increasing usage of serverless technologies.
As a Software Engineer you’ll be supported and developed to expand both your technical tool kit and non-technical competencies like stakeholder engagement,  getting buy-in to your ideas, communication skills, etc that are equally important for today’s technology experts.   We offer great progression within engineering, and offer opportunities to explore both technical and people leadership career paths.
