The Champions League of logistics, that is our playing field. Our customers have high expectations of us – 24/7. As an organisation, we want to be everyone’s favourite parcel distributor. This position we want to maintain and reinforce by committing to software-defined logistics. That is why we are building our own cloud native software engineering capability.

The logical next step

We were one of the first corporations in the Netherlands to have a Public Cloud strategy for our software. Now that we have integrated all software in the AWS Public Cloud, it’s time to take the next step: we are going to add even more customisation and intelligence to our software.

Watch the video in which Marcel Krom (CIO PostNL) and Gerrie de Jonge (IT director Parcel & Logistics) talk about the software revolution within PostNL.

Data and technology as drivers

The logistics of e-commerce is developing at a rapid pace. Data and algorithms can predict what the customer is ordering and where it should be delivered. Thanks to the Internet of Things, we will know exactly where a product is in the delivery process and robots will assist in packing and shipping. Using data and technology as drivers, we can continue to meet the needs of our customers.

Are you curious to know what the future holds for you as a software engineer working at PostNL? Watch this expertvideo of Eline Kamerbeek, Head of Development at PostNL, where she describes three interesting trends.

From management to in-house cloud native software engineering

Radical transition

We are initiating a radical transition and are already working with the best tech companies in the world. But we are convinced that software reflects the intelligence of our company. Therefore, we will design, develop and manage the code ourselves. To achieve this, we are building our own cloud native software engineering capability with 150 to 200 engineers.

Challenges and opportunities

We are looking for IT experts. In our agile teams, you will work on specific use cases with our logistic experts. Moreover, you will work with the latest tools and technology in the field of AWS Public Cloud, data and machine learning, IoT and video analytics.

A massive impact

As an IT expert, you will impact over 17 million customers in the Netherlands and Benelux. And the businesses of our over 100,000 corporate customers, including some of the biggest webshops.

Do you have an independent, entrepreneurial and result-focused mindset? And do you want to make a difference as an engineer? Take on the challenge with us.
