A bit about us.

We are Butternut Box. We cook and deliver boxes of fresh, home-cooked dog food to homes across the UK.

There are two things that matter to us the most:

Helping dogs live healthier, happier and longer lives
Leaving our customers smiling after every interaction

At Butternut Box, we combine our love of dogs and technology to create a product that is redefining the pet food industry.

We are on a mission to provide the best customer experience, feed more dogs and revolutionize an arcane industry using the latest technology. That’s where you come in.

Who we are looking for.

You are a software developer with 1-2 years experience. You care deeply about engineering culture and the quality of products you and your team build. You love the web and new technologies (we think AWS Lambda, Golang & Elixir are cool). You have an analytical mind and love solving problems as part of a team. If you have made open source contributions to a project in any language (even English!) that’s a plus.

- work across the stack (Ruby on Rails, React JS, PostgreSQL) to deliver quality, maintainable code.
- collaborate and learn with other team members via pair programming, mentoring, code reviews, and technical talks
- learn about and champion best practices in code, architecture & processes.

Analytical and problem-solving skills
Pro-active, entrepreneurial 'can do’ attitude
Passion for startups
