Job Description

BluJay Solutions Web Application Developers are responsible for the design and development of web-based applications for the supply chain industry

All of the software products we offer are hosted in a single-instance, multi-tenant model accessed by thousands of users across dozens of countries, and our primary application, the TMS®, is used to plan, execute, track, and settle billions of dollars of transportation movements every year.
