📣A bit about the role.  

As part of the Growth Product Engineering team, you will work closely with engineers, product managers, designers and stakeholders to help solve our customers' problems and directly impact their (and their dog's) daily lives.

In this role, you can expect to:

  • Ship customer-facing products constantly.
  • Contribute to the architecture and development direction of the team to ensure quality code is written and excellent products are built.
  • Work across the stack (Ruby on Rails, React JS, Redux , SASS) to deliver quality, maintainable code. This role will be more focused on the Frontend side of things but a willingness to pickup and learn technologies like Ruby on Rails is required.
  • Collaborate and learn with other team members via pair programming, mentoring, code reviews, and technical talks.
  • Learn about and champion best practices in code, architecture & processes.


🕵🏽‍♀️ Who we are looking for.

You are a software engineer with 3+ years of commercial experience with React. You lean towards the frontend but are able to jump into some backend work when needed (We're looking for someone with preference for a 75/25 split in terms of workload between frontend and backend respectively).

You care deeply about the quality of products you and your team build, and are motivated by constantly shipping features and products that directly impact customer's lives. Seeing users benefit from your work is what gets you out of the bed in the morning. You love the web and new technologies (We use React and Redux on a daily basis). You work best by collaborating with other engineers, designers and product managers to make this all happen. Finally, you can't think of anything better than joining a company who's mission is to improve dog's lives.


👋 A bit about you.

  • 3+ years commercial experience in a similar role using React. Redux experience is a bonus.
  • Experience with a server side technology like Node.js, Django or Ruby on Rails would be very helpful.
  • An interest in constantly learning new tools and developing your skills.
  • A true motivation to ship customer-facing products.
  • Pro-active, driven, entrepreneurial 'can do’ attitude.
  • Passion for startups.
  • Obsessed with dogs!

We’ve come a long way since our co-founders (Kev & Dave) hand-delivered the first Butternut Box, we now feed a lot of dogs across the UK - but we want to feed dogs everywhere. And to do this, we need a team of brilliant people who share that ambition to come and work with us.

❗️A few things to note:
