Senior Ruby on Rails Developer

London, United Kingdom · Engineering


Farmdrop is growing quickly. We're looking for a talented, experienced, sensible and creative Senior Ruby Developer to help lead the business forward. We have strong investors who share our mission to fix the food chain.

About Farmdrop

Farmdrop represents a new economic approach to food retailing whereby the benefits of cutting out the middlemen are shared between customers who enjoy fresher, healthier food at lower prices, and smaller scale producers who enjoy best-ever trading terms. Our mission is to Fix The Food Chain, something we plan to do by providing the best food retail experience.

Our tech team

We're "agile with a small a" - we do daily standups, we have a scrum board, we pair when it makes sense to pair, and we've burned all gantt charts. It's a pragmatic process that's working well for us, but we're tweaking it all the time and you would be part of that. We generally "do the right thing" (TDD, constant refactoring, pairing, pull requests and so on) but the need to deliver features quickly stops us from being dogmatic.

Our tech stack at the moment is based around:

As a key member of a small, fast-moving company, you will have a lot of autonomy, creativity and impact, getting involved at all levels of the product lifecycle. There's very little in the way of donkey-work - we're constantly evolving our product, building key features and taking big decisions that will affect the business for years to come. You would be a central part of moving our software stack forward at every level, working in a small team of capable and friendly developers who love building great software. If we can promise anything, it's that you'll learn a lot!

Ideally, you are an experienced Ruby Developer with proven expertise in building world-class e-commerce solutions.
