Description

At Gousto, we're looking for someone to help us disrupt the online food industry. You will be helping people to discover, buy and cook delicious food at home without the hassle of recipe books and supermarkets, all with no food waste. We’ve grown rapidly since our founding in 2012, seeing a 185% increase in sales over the summer of 2017. Technology remains central to our ability to continue growing and to support this we have bold plans to double our team size during 2018.

Tech is at the heart of Gousto. We’re not your average startup and not your average tech company. Tech maintains our website, apps, customer storefront as well as internal tooling, warehousing and logistics. We also have a data science team in tech that works to personalise the experience our customers get, optimise warehouse routing and more.

As a tech team we love using the latest technologies to solve complex problems. We’re heavily invested in AWS using many of its features. Our platform is fully automated using Ansible and we release code to production daily. We’re moving our platform to a microservice architecture and currently have services built in PHP and node.js as well as a number of AWS Lambda functions in Python. Our frontend has a mix of old PHP Laravel (which we’re removing) and React using cssnext and CSS modules. This year we’re aiming to move our services to use GraphQL and be fully migrated onto Kubernetes by the end of 2018.
