About Farmdrop

Farmdrop “the Ethical Grocer” 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 and provide “better food all round”, something we plan to do by providing the best food retail experience for everyone.

Our tech team
We're "agile with a small a" - we do daily standups, we pair when it makes sense to pair. 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/environment at the moment is based around:

Ruby, Rails, Javascript, React.js, Redux.js, ES6, Sass, HTML/CSS, Postgres, Redis, ElasticSearch, Kubernetes, Memcached, Git, Node.js, GraphQL, Apollo, Kafka, TDD/BDD, CI/CD

Our test stack: Rspec, Cucumber, SitePrism, Capybara, Appium, Cypress, Gatling

You will be a central part of moving our software stack forward, working in a team of capable engineers who love building great software. If we can promise anything, it's that you'll learn a lot and have the space to apply the excellent experience you bring with you!
