The business

We all know there has been a shift in consumer awareness and alertness to sustainability, ethical fair trading, environmentally positive and local low carbon options. The consumer also expects an effortless browsing and buying experience, plus endless choice.

All together that presents massive opportunity for this start-up venture. 

They have the funding, the management team and the non-exec advisory board in place providing day2day input.

The platform is being built by 3rd parties and now needs taking in-house. It's basic at present and needs a caring pair of arms around it, to build it into something spectacular.

The Software Engineer role

Shape, build and develop a new platform. We need innovation. We will run with good ideas. It's new, it's exciting and it's about leading the way.

Why talk to us ?

We are on a mission to disrupt online retail and encourage thoughtful buying decisions.

Due to the fast-moving nature of a start-up in this industry, this is the perfect role for an ambitious self-starter.

We aren't box-ticking to find the ideal candidate profile for this role. This is about hearts and minds, attitude and enthusiasm, as much as it is about technical experience.  You will need some knowledge of the tech stack, to be able to hit the ground running, but what you don't know you will need to learn pretty quickly.

Please get in touch if you would like to discuss.
