THE OPPORTUNITY

Our technology platform enables small business owners handle everything from inventory management to customer support & logistics. We provide customers with access to inventory that was not available before and create a seamless shopping experience when buying from independent boutiques.

As a Full Stack Engineer you’ll work closely with the rest of the team to progress Trouva’s technology platform. The challenge is diverse: you’ll have the opportunity to work on inventory management, order processing, internal communication tools, but also, and maybe most importantly, on creating an alternative shopping experience for the Trouva customer.

We are a full-stack Javascript team utilising a one-language for all approach that allows us to work together efficiently and provide great experiences. It also means that we get to play with shiny new things often which we’re quite happy about. In the end though, we are product engineers and are driven by providing the best possible experience to our customers.

Requirements

* You should have some experience/experimentation with Javascript on the server-side. You should be able to discuss Node.js and understand situations where it would be appropriate. If Javascript is not your primary language, then experience with multiple languages and demonstrable ability to pick up new languages without significant hand-holding is key.
* Experience working with or at least a solid understanding of configuration management tools such as Ansible, Puppet, Chef. Understanding of the role of load balancers and DNS, able to setup a basic infrastructure with some direction.
* Experience having designed at least one API or subset of functionality from scratch. Able to discuss needs from both server side implementation and client side needs.
* Experience working with CI/CD, able to discuss different testing approaches and have a good understanding of difference between things like unit/integration tests.
* You’ve got experience testing applications, through unit, behaviour & integration tests. You understand that testing is essential to build robust applications and you’re experienced with setting up the appropriate test tooling to ensure rapid development and continuous deployment.
* You’ve previously been exposed to at least one frontend production application and have a keen interest in learning more about building beautiful experiences for the end-user.

Benefits

* Competitive salary and share options in one of the UK’s most exciting startups. Equity is very important to us - we want you to be a shareholder in the company so you are part of the upside if we're successful together
* 33 days including 8 bank holidays per annum
* Competitive Maternity, Paternity and Adoption leave policies
* A beautiful office space in Central London, with unlimited coffee, snacks and fresh fruit
* Need tech or equipment? We'll provide you with what you need to get the job done
* Regular team events where we celebrate our success and people, including weekly meditation, yoga, five a side football and Pizza Friday's!
* Company benefits membership (e.g. discount on Apple products, discounted gym membership, free mobile phone insurance - via Perkbox)
* Unlimited staff discount on all Trouva products and a Trouva gift card to get something awesome for your desk
