Description

Brandless Overview:

Brandless is reinventing modern consumption by making better stuff at fairer prices available to everyone. We're starting with our everyday essentials collection: better-for-you versions of the things you use all the time, from snacks to soap to spoons. All for just $3. We created and curated products that match your values and requirements, from organic to gluten-free to paraben-free. Plus, with every order placed on Brandless.com, a meal is donated to people facing hunger through Feeding America.

Position Overview

On the Engineering team at Brandless we use React, Redux, Rails and TypeScript to deliver a modern, fast, and maintainable shopping experience to our customers, along with handling several key systems behind the scenes.

It is our job to ensure our customers orders are correctly fulfilled and accounted for during the ordering process and beyond. As such our team has a huge impact throughout the business.

As a company we have daring plans beyond e-commerce and to execute them we are building out a first class engineering team with experience across the stack. We are accepting all applicants whether you prefer to contribute to the frontend, backend or both.

Mentoring is a core tenant of what we do here at Brandless. Our team already ranges in ability and background (alumni from the likes of GitHub, Munchery and Twitter alongside bootcamp graduates) and we plan to carry this on as we grow. Whether you love teaching or learning from your coworkers, you will enjoy being a member of our team.

This position is located in our HQ in San Francisco.
