Work with us
We love logistics, and we are all about improving the processes in our customers' supply chain.
We are former warehouse employees, business analysts, software coders, testers, jack of all trades, and hard workers. In our spare time, we are musicians, construction workers, moms, dads, writers, travellers, comedians, and adventurers. Because of this blend of people, we have a unique perspective on logistical processes in any warehouse.
Our focus is the implementation of Blue Yonder WMS (the best WMS in the galaxy in our humble opinion). Would you like to learn more about Starware? Click on the button below!

At Starware, we encourage remote work. We are, of course, always happy to have you in one of our offices across the Globe: Netherlands (Gouda & Venlo), Germany (Hamburg), Australia (Melbourne), and Canada (Montreal & Toronto).
We also organise bi-yearly events where we gather all Starware employees, so you have the chance to interact with everybody, even if you work mostly remotely.
These events are quite special, and most of the time, a surprise.
We like to say: "Hope for the best, prepare for the worst!"

At Starware, you will find the casual and warm atmosphere of a family-owned business paired with benefits that go above and beyond. Also, we know that our employees are the heart of our company and aim to make it easy for you to balance your job with your private life and to keep growing professionally. That's why we give you trust from day one and the freedom to organise your workday in the way that works best for you.

We give you the freedom to work when and where you want.
Yes, you read that right!
Do you prefer to work from a local coffee bar, avoid rush hour, or have some time at home with the kids during the day? No problem! (as long as you generally meet your contract hours and it works out for your team and customers).
Work with the latest version of the Blue Yonder WMS, newest automation and robotics technologies in the warehouses, and advanced Machine Learning and AI that are entering the WMS space. Plus, build software using the latest Microsoft Stack and frameworks & tools like MS DevOps, Git, Angular & Azure.

We got you covered! Choose between a lease car and a travel compensation that is paid on top of your salary.
Starware started as a company run by family & friends. This has brought a casual atmosphere to the company that is hard to find somewhere else. And so it is our goal to keep that vibe for as long as we will exist.
Starware is open to all and we enjoy the diversity of our team. What binds us is that we all want to do good work, our drive to keep improving, have a good sense of humor, and our ability to put things into perspective.
Every event we join or organise, we try to do something special, whether it's a trade-show, conference, or own event.
For instance, twice a year we organise the Starware days, in which we invite all colleagues to join in a mix of work & social activities. These events have become quite legendary.
Don’t believe us? We have the pictures to back it up. 😉
Work in a self-steering, motivated, and skilled team, and have the freedom to decide your own career path. So, instead of growing towards the inevitable managerial role, there is also a lot of room to grow your technical skills and keep doing what you love to do. You'll also have a budget to study whatever you want.
Free coffee and snacks
In every office, you can help yourself to free coffee. In our biggest office, the headquarter in Gouda, we additionally take care of your lunch. Our chef Frank prepares a meal every day that you can enjoy with your teammates.
