About Ferdia

Ferdia aims to digitize and renew the tour bus industry through an Uber-like approach. We will revolutionize the tour bus market by digitizing small and medium-sized tour bus companies and by making it much easier to rent and use tour buses. Be it for company trips, festivals or football matches.

We have good drive and plans for international expansion. To strengthen and manage our front-end team, we are looking for an experienced front-end developer. We were started in 2016. Currently we are 5 employees in Oslo, and soon we will be more.

We have received support from Innovation Norway, entered into a partnership with Tide (one of Norway’s largest bus companies), and have begun work on internationalization. We are facing an exciting time!

We currently provide 2 services:

  • IT platform for tour bus companies that handle sales / orders, planning and invoicing. It is called TEQ and is now in use in 10 bus companies (and counting).
  • Bus rental for private customers and companies. We are currently the only player in Norway where the customer can get an accurate price estimate, as well as accept an offer with one click.

You will be the prime mover for the front-end team that develops and maintains the code base. You will guide and coach the team, and set a good standard for the development team through active participation in the development work.
