Project Description

A forum of four internationally strong companies, of which two are long-standing Fortune 500, have commissioned us to build a platform which will significantly update their traditional way of offering products and services, as well as ease the management of ongoing support services.

Besides having the freedom to apply the technologies and practices of our choice, the most exciting part of this project is how widely the platform will reach globally.

The platform is a digital solution based on four-years of research and will solve internally painful processes which carry heavy administrative cost and require a global network of a hands-on manual workforce. The platform will use advanced automatisation and introduce new digital workspace for the four stakeholders, which are all catering to large enterprises and governmental organisations. In some cases the stakeholders are serving the same clients by complementing each other’s products and services, hence the joint cause.

The platform will serve as a backbone for intelligent product and service delivery whilst supporting high level of legal compliance for complex cross border documentation.

We were chosen as an external party in order to ensure equal interests of each stakeholder and have already a signed contract and have agreed on the scope, deliverables, as well as the preliminary timelines.  

Our mission is to build a new Enterprise Service Platform using a combination of the best modern practices and fitting technology based on written specifications and a working prototype which was built last year.


About Us

Blue Orange is a Digital shop that produces highly tailored solutions. Putting together latest technologies and bright minds we have created simple yet entertaining consumer interfaces on top of complex systems.

We are problem-solvers so our projects are large in scale and come with market challenging requirements. In other words, we stay away from small and simple projects that just pay the bills. We don’t cut corners, we do it right and we do it well; something to be proud of.

We are a small but strong international team where everyone matters and is treated equally. The hard work is balanced with a friendly and pleasant environment where we have some fun along the way. We are in Barcelona because we love the weather, the food and the sea. In our opinion, it is the best city in Europe and therefore it was a simple choice to settle here.

Our company values are respect, transparency, commitment, responsibility, attention to detail and fun.​


We Offer

We offer a competitive salary that is in line with your experience.

A relocation package for the right candidate is available.

The role is based in central Barcelona.
