We're looking for a driven Full Stack React Native engineer to join Cream's founding team on our mission to revolutionize how people discover & communicate with restaurants worldwide.

ABOUT (cream.app)

Cream is a restaurant discovery platform powered by restaurant recommendations from chefs & restaurateurs with a simple mission:

Give everyone access to the most valuable information on where to eat & drink anywhere in the world, and restaurants access to technology to be more successful.

We do that by providing diners with high-quality recommendations from chefs & restaurateurs on a platform that makes it easier for restaurants to communicate and convert those same diners by giving them access to the latest marketing technology that saves them time and money.


A talented, experienced developer looking to make their mark on the world, ready to commit their years of experience to a role with much responsibility and freedom to build the world they want to see and join the founding team in an early-stage startup that has early runs on the board.

This role is for someone sick of being a cog in a machine in their current role with no control or power over the work they're doing and the direction the company is going in, and ultimately, the future they're building. This is a role where your hands are on the steering wheel just as much as ours.

This is an opportunity for extreme growth in terms of skills, responsibility, seniority, and shaping both the future of Cream and the hospitality industry.

Developers with experience in marketplaces, communication tools (chat), e-commerce across mobile and browser are warmly welcomed.

Tech stack:

  • React Native & Expo
  • NodeJS / Express
  • Elastic Search
  • Redis
  • MongoDB


Developers NOT driven to solve complex problems shouldn't apply. Our current external dev team love the product because of the wide-ranging, regularly occurring complex problems. Whilst remote work is accepted and pursued, developers not located in Australia need not apply. Developers who need the support of a dev team and prefer to delegate tasks and not build themselves won't suit this role.


The app has been built by a talented local team and now we're looking for an equally talented Full Stack React Native engineer to join our founding team with substantial equity (founder-level equity), to take on responsibility of the technical future of the company.

We launched in Nov 2019:

  • Before COVID-19, we had started generating revenue through two products and achieved a solid DAU/MAU of 25%. As restaurants are closed, this has been temporarily halted but already resuming.

  • We've completed the RMIT Accelerator Program in 2019, nominated as the top startup in our cohort.

  • Product has 5000+ recommendations from 150+ of Australia's top chefs across 40+ different Melbourne + Sydney neighbourhoods.

  • 30k Instagram followers. @creamapp_


You'll be working side-by-side with the founding team to design and build products that provide value to diners, chefs, and venues, working to iterate as fast as possible so we can learn quickly to churn the best solution to the top of the pile. Although you're a talented engineer, you're here to think and problem solve and steer as well. You'll be adopting the Cream app as well as navigating the future in line with the latest product we want to explore. Cream is designed to scale worldwide so building features and infrastructure that deal with many moving components and stakeholders is key.

Your key responsibilities will be developing robust app features using a mixture of your strong front and back end development & UX experience, adding capabilities and resolving issues in our backend and React Native Android and iOS apps, and exploring a web version.

Attention to detail isn't a nice-to-have, it's the bare minimum.

If this is you, please get in touch.

Tom, Co-founder.
