Node.js developer wanted for group-buying food and groceries startup

Where: -

Date Posted:

Contact: Ross Vincent

We're a mobile platform that enables groups of 3 to 8 people to bulk buy fresh food and then split up the orders between themselves. Our biggest challenge is making it easy for small groups of people to co-ordinate themselves. We also plan to let suppliers link directly into our platform.

We're looking for someone to be involved in all aspects of the product, from the server-side API to rapidly prototyping mobile websites for our customers to use. This is an opportunity to work on the 'full stack' of a new and growing startup.

Required: - Writing, maintaining and deploying Node.js applications - MongoDB - Modern HTML and CSS, including the latest best practices

Desirable: - Deploying applications to Heroku - Writing modular code with RequireJS - Templating with Handlebars - User testing - Keeping on top Lean / Agile

This is an ambitious project, so your skills are important... but most important of all is your ability to work - and get on well with - a small team.

Although we've been running successful test groups for 12 months we‘re still feeling our way into an unexplored market (only three companies - worldwide - working in this area). So it's essential that we team up with someone who can understand and help solve the challenges we'll face, as we get to them.

If this sounds interesting and you think you may be who we‘re looking for, please send some info about yourself.
