About the job

Adiona's APIs and apps are used to power millions of efficient product deliveries around the world for brands like Coca-Cola, Amazon, BP, Marley Spoon, and many more.

Our values revolve around efficiency, integrity, transparency, inclusivity, and creating "triple wins" for businesses, invividuals, and our planet. We are a fast-growing privately funded scale-up with a small core team in Sydney and a growing team overseas.

Working together to build a team for:

  • Data security, pen testing, etc. Managing 3rd parties to put us on the path to SOC2 and ISO compliance.

And the transport sector contributes the highest single share of greenhouse gas emissions globally. Modern technology including AI and commercial mathematics in the cloud can help offset a significant portion of these problems. Adiona is dedicated to that potential.
