? Where you fit in
Our developers are highly involved and essential to each part of our company. From route planning, scaling our customers’ analytics to handle enormous chunks of data, to calculating how many bananas we should have in our warehouse on a Thursday – our teams write, plan, and predict.
As one of our Senior Software Engineers, you grab ownership of projects, grow, and work collaboratively with your colleagues. You design, test, evolve, and evaluate the nuts and bolts of our operation while offering a creative and analytical approach. You feel at home writing platforms and display an intricate understanding of how each line of code fits into a business plan. You don't really care about titles, but if you had to choose one, "senior" would fit best.
At Picnic your skills will be complemented with the latest tech and our diverse projects will keep you challenged and motivated. From designing, developing, and testing new user-facing features, to optimizing supply chain systems and improving the scalability and security of our platform: you’ll be managing individual project priorities, deadlines, and deliverables, while finding yourself fully immersed in an engaging startup culture.We don’t hide what we do.
