Job Description

ABOUT STOWGA
At Stowga we are building the world’s warehousing marketplace.

Stowga matches warehouses with companies looking to take space on-demand. By creating a marketplace to search, compare and book warehouses we have reduced a process that used to take months to minutes.

This completely changes how companies think about their supply chains. With Stowga clients can build completely dynamic, flexible supply chains and respond in real-time to business needs.

Based in London and backed by top tier investors, we are assembling a world-class team of technology and logistics experts to build a category defining product, one that will change an entire industry globally. The prize is enormous: logistics is one of the very few genuine trillion dollar markets yet to be disrupted by technology.

THE ROLE
There are currently 3 of us in the Stowga tech team. We operate a flat team structure and organise the work so that we are exposed to all areas of the tech stack. In a typical day this could involve:

- Working closely with the Product and Commercial teams to shape new features.
- Building a new customer search filter to tweak our warehouse search algorithm.
- Adding a layer of isochrones to a map calculating drive times from a location.
- Pairing with another team member or reviewing their code.
- Deploying to production multiple times a day.
- Enjoying some mob programming at one of our hack days!

THE TECH
The Marketplace is our core application. We have built it with Ruby on Rails 5 and increasingly use Elm for client side components.
The Marketplace leverages PostGIS and geoJSON for a variety of spatial solutions.
We are building an Elixir service to process historical trade and commodity data.
Our stack is deployed to Heroku.
We are open to experimenting with new languages and find that the best way to experiment is with hack days and deploy with a non-core production feature.

WHO ARE WE LOOKING FOR
- Experience with at least 1 web framework e.g. Ruby on Rails, Django, Express.js.
- You want to work on something that makes a real difference, while understanding the wider business impact.
- You will need to show initiative in order to thrive in a dynamic, evolving company.
- You will need to be adaptable in a challenging business environment.
- Knowledge or an interest in Elm, Elixir or functional programming a plus.

WHAT YOU GET FROM US
- A competitive salary.
- A slice of the company through a generous options package.
- 25 days holiday.
- Training, conference and equipment budget.
- Hack days.


INTERVIEW STAGES
- Phone chat with CTO.
- Tech challenge.
- Meet the tech team to discuss your tech challenge solution.
- On site pairing session.
