Openings:
Full Stack Engineer

About the Role:

 

AllotMe is hiring for a full stack software engineer that can grow in their role with the company in the long-term. Our mission is to make it easy for anyone living in a city to be able to grow their own food, even when they don’t have a garden of their own. It’s an overused comparison, but think of us as the ‘Airbnb for gardens’. 

 

We are a London-based, Venture-backed startup  and we’re looking for a talented engineer to work primarily on front-end development, with a view to work across the full stack in the long term. 

 

This is an exciting opportunity for a developer who wants to have an impact. We want to expand our digital platform to help make us the go-to brand for urban agriculture. If you’re passionate about the environment, and want a role where you can be both hands-on and help to shape overall strategy, then this is the job for you. 

 

We are open to candidates with at least 2 years experience. Salary and equity package will match your experience.

 

Tech Stack:

 

Core product: A 2-sided marketplace built with Sharetribe Go: React JS, Haml, jQuery, Ruby on Rails. Currently hosted on AWS Lightsail.

 

Marketing pages: A collection of front pages including an e-commerce store using Wix, currently in process of being rebuilt in Svelte and transitioning to a headless CMS platform.

 

What you’ll be working on:

 

We’ve got big plans for AllotMe over the next few years. Here’s what you might be working on within the next 6-12 months:

 

  • Building a new onboarding flow for users

  • Rebuilding our map search page

  • Adding referrals

  • Setting up AB testing

  • Adding booking of viewings

 

If you’ve got ideas, then we’d love to hear from you!

 

 

What we’re looking for...

 

Essential:

 

  • An interest in climate tech / the environment / sustainable food

  • Experience with HTML, CSS and JS

  • Some experience with React and/or jQuery

  • Some experience with Ruby on Rails

  • Someone with conviction who is proactive, and able to operate independently

  • An interest in learning new languages & frameworks

  • Comfortable working across the full stack: from testing, to databases, to frontend app &; web development: you are able to, and excited to solve end-to-end challenges

  • A problem-solving attitude!


 

Desirable: 

  • Shipping projects with Ruby on Rails to production

  • Experience in deploying on AWS/Heroku or similar architecture

  • Experience in early stage startups

 

All of the above is more of a wishlist than requirements, so if you don’t meet everything please still apply or get in touch. We’d love to speak with you!

-    Be one of the first hires at an exciting climate-positive startup where you can have a real impact
