About Viaservice | TransFollow

Viaservice BV is an independent organization based in The Netherlands providing IT solutions for the transport sector and the logistic chain. The product suite TransFollow facilitates the exchange and storage of data relating to the e-CMR and logistics transactions. This can lead to a significant reduction in transaction costs (compared to a paper consignment note) and the logistics processes can function more efficiently. The TransFollow online platform makes the digital exchange of consignment notes possible as well as signing and following it. Companies with their own company specific software system can integrate into the TransFollow platform.


The digital consignment note gives full control of all incoming and outgoing shipments. We expect that the digital consignment notes become an integral part of the logistic sector in the next 5 years.

About the job:

As the Devops / Security officer, you are part of the TransFollow Development and Implementation Support Team and you report to our COO based in the Netherlands and to our CTO based in Geneva. You are responsible for supporting, maintaining and enhancing our technical AWS based infrastructure. You guarantee a scalable, robust and performant technical architecture able to support our future transaction request growth (transactions per seconds, CPU usage, storage capacity, system response time).  You have a very good knowledge of AWS services, and you have very good experience in deployment scripting tools.

The integration itself is an easy and simple process but requires deep knowledge of the situations occurring  for the different players within the supply chain. Accompanying potential clients during the initial tests and implementation, helping them in their decision-making process and providing training sessions are therefore another aspect of the job.
