Role overview

Senior Software Engineer - Platform

Location – Remote or hybrid (Buckfastleigh, Devon, TQ11 0JU)

Work with us at Riverford and join a thriving employee-owned business

·        You get paid to write Clojure all day, every day.

·        Be part of a friendly, inclusive, and talented team.

·        Grow with us – we’re proud to offer a bucketload of training and development opportunities to support your chosen career path.

·        We offer 10% training time every week helping you to grow

·        Work-life balance. We love what we do, but we also cherish our non-work time to relax and recharge.

·        Flexitime. Our core working hours are 10am-3pm, with flexibility outside of that.

·        Annual profit share; at least 10% of all our profits are split equally between all co-owners. In 2021, this was £3600 each.

More than just a veg box….

Riverford are mad about organic veg. It’s at the core of everything we do. We love to grow it, pack it into boxes, and deliver it to around 90,000 homes across the UK every week. 

This takes loads of brilliant people – and working here makes you a ‘co-owner’, since Riverford is employee owned. Success means much more than just profits; we want this to be a place people enjoy coming to work, and a business our co-owners feel proud of!

In 2021, we were delighted to be awarded two-star Best Companies accreditation, recognising Riverford as an ‘outstanding’ place to work.  

What you’ll be doing…

Brilliant veg has the power to shape a better world – through what we grow, how we grow it, how it inspires people in the kitchen, and the joy it brings to their plates. With the support of customers, in the past year we’ve saved 21 tonnes of plastic, donated over 1 million portions of veg to charity, planted 1525 native trees, and raised £164,744 for Send a Cow. And there’s still so much more to come.

As a Senior Engineer in our Platform Engineering Team, you will play a key role in the direction of our engineering effort over the next 12-18 months. We've got a wide variety of interesting problems to solve, from delivery and logistics, to warehouse automation, to building scalable and robust APIs that power the core of our e-commerce business. And we build it all using powerful functional programming techniques.

Who knew selling veg could be so interesting, right?

What is the salary?

£50,000 to £65,000 per annum d.o.e.

Requirements

The right person for this role will bring a combination of the following:

·        You’re passionate about Clojure, with at least one year of commercial experience in it or another functional language such as Haskell, Scala, or Elixir.

·        You’re friendly and easy to work with. You value collaboration and teamwork.

·        You have a track record of success at identifying and solving high-value business problems.

·        You’re a strong communicator. You're familiar with the XY problem, and are really good at asking the right questions to get to the heart of an issue.

·        Tech stack: Clojure(Script), MySQL, AWS, GitLab, GraphQL

·        We understand that you might not tick every box. It's important that you have commercial functional programming experience, though it's totally fine if you aren't a MySQL or GraphQL guru.

This is a permanent contract, 40 hours a week.

Co-owner benefits

Riverford is a beautiful place to work, with lots of great people – and other perks too. Some of our benefits include: 33 days holiday pro rata (including bank holidays), generous company pension scheme, heavily discounted organic breakfasts and lunches, annual profit share (10% of all our profits are split equally between all co-owners), free organic fruit and veg, time and half on bank holidays, and free parking.

 

  • 250+
  • United Kingdom

As the UK’s largest independent producer of organic veg boxes, you can imagine that we’re no ordinary e-commerce company. We deliver to more than 90,000 households every week. Every part of our company is enabled through technology, from mobile devices in the fields, to our website, picking lines and mobile apps. We are extraordinarily passionate about our products, the ethics we demand of ourselves in their supply, and the attention to detail we take in their delivery. We have turned our backs on the traditional route of using commercial off the shelf software and third party integrators for our key business functionality. Instead we have built a small, capable team of experts who have been able to deliver above and beyond any other companies that Riverford have worked with in their history. With a large variety of projects from e-commerce to systems integration there is never a dull moment. We are proud of our achievements so far. We are ambitious and have big plans for the future.
