💡A bit about your responsibilities:

  • Work across the stack which includes React Native (mobile), React and Ruby on Rails. 
  • Ensure the systems we build are modular, scalable and reliable.

Here are some of the projects the team have worked on recently:

  • Enabling international expansion by adapting our systems for other currencies and languages.
  • Helping customers better resolve issues with their deliveries themselves through a self-serve platform that looks great and is easy to use.
  • Building a new onboarding flow to make sure new customers feel at home with Butternut.

👋  A bit about you:

  • Significant commercial experience in a similar senior fullstack engineering position, on a Ruby on Rails / React stack. 
  • An interest in developing your skills and coaching others around you. 
  • A true motivation to ship customer-facing products that have a direct impact on commercials. 
  • Pro-active, driven, entrepreneurial spirit. 
  • Passion for startups.
  • Obsessed with dogs!
