The Role

We are building the API economy for retail by creating a universal platform that makes a shop’s inventory data visible to the internet. We exist so that anyone, anywhere can see what’s in stock in their local shop; opening up possibilities for retail that previously only existed for e-commerce.

We have great foundations: 1000s of happy customers, a fast and easy to use deployment process, good test suites, developer-friendly infrastructure - AWS Lambda, DynamoDB, s3, serverless framework, and great tech stack - Node.js and React.

We are looking for an engineer to join our friendly and awesome team. You will be working on both the back-end and front-end of our system, building out new user interfaces as well as linking them to both existing and new APIs.
