Nordhavn, Denmark

Blackbird ApS is a spin-off from emendo Consulting Group. It all began with the frustration over the cost of installing data collection systems on filling lines at the Danish brewery, Royal Unibrew. The consultants in emendo decided that a better technology was needed. The idea behind Blackbird is to provide products and services, which will reduce wasted resources within companies and improve the way people live and work together. Everything is developed in-house and inspired by key customers and top graduate students. The company’s vision is to positively impact the lives of one million people before 2020. The Blackbird platform is already in use in Europe, North America and Asia.

Blackbird is part of emendo Consulting Group, which consists of a total of 72 employees spread across Denmark, USA, and India. Your focus will be on working with next-generation web applications and IoT, and you will therefore work with JavaScript/TypeScript and technologies such as Rust, Elm, Node.js, React, Serverless, Docker, GraphQL, CI/CD, both SQL and NoSQL, Git and AWS.
