For this you must connect your curiosity and deep understanding of the timber trading industry, our common vision, the client's pains and a deep understanding of modern internet technologies to come up with solutions that tackle our client's problems at the root.

You will achieve this goal together with the CEO, the technical lead and our investors. Doing so you will play a key role in disrupting a dormant multi-billion market and possibly growing into the role of a CPO.
