The opportunity

Stowga is an early stage, rapidly growing startup backed by some of the best investors in Europe and the US. We won Wired Magazine’s Startup Showcase 2017 award and have just closed a £1.5m funding round. We are looking for highly motivated and intellectually-curious software engineers to join our rapidly expanding team.

About Stowga

Our platform allows warehouses to optimise their space by offering under-utilised capacity to customers who take that space without the long-term commitment of a lease. By switching the fixed cost of a lease to a variable cost we transform the economics of this $300bn global market.

We are early stage but growth and traction to date has been impressive: we built the largest database of warehouses on the planet, identified a data-driven customer acquisition model, and signed up some of the biggest names in the industry on both the retail and the warehouse side of our marketplace.

Team and Technology

We are gathering a world class team of technology and logistics experts to build this category-defining product.

We like to build things that solve problems, you will not be constrained by process – we work in small product teams that take a lean approach.

Our tech team look for skilled and collaborative developers who are motivated, excited about technology and keen to consistently raise the quality of our collective work by building elegant solutions through clean, efficient and testable code.

Our core stack is Ruby on Rails, Python and Heroku. We take a data-driven approach in everything we do. From collecting, cleaning and analysing billions of trade data points for understanding demand; to using earth orbit technology to identify warehouses. This position will ideally suit a developer with the creativity to push the envelope and the drive to excel.

Who we are looking for

  • 2 or more years of commercial experience with Ruby on Rails.

  • Someone who strives to understand how lines of code translate to business value.

  • A strong communicator.

  • Knowledge of Python and an interest in data science a plus.

What you get from us

  • An excellent salary

  • Options in a well backed, fast growing company with big ambition.

  • 25 days holiday.

  • Training, conference and equipment budget.

  • Hack days.
