Senior Ruby on Rails Developer (m/f) in Berlin

Berlin, start time: asap

We tackle a huge problem in retail - that costs retailers billions a year and creates tons of waste. That problem is customer returns. In retail, around 15% of all products sold get returned. 50% of these returned products are either damaged, open-box or show signs of usage. These returns can’t be resold as new and often simply get discarded. That’s over a billion products a year in Germany alone. While painful for retailers, returns have been accepted as a cost of doing business and until now the environmental impacts have been overlooked. Despite the volume and potential value of products in the reverse supply chain, most retailers lack the core capacity to inspect and remarket returned inventory and take advantage of multichannel dispositions that are available.


malindo provides processes and a technology solution that connects these goods directly to consumers, cutting out all middlemen and increasing recovery value for retailers, while giving consumers great deals and reducing environmental waste.

Nice to have: 

Working experience with android or iOS developers is a plus i.e. building APIs that are consumed by native mobile applications or Frontend web applications like Angular.js or React


What we offer:

  • A job position with a bright future in a fast growing company and innovative industry
