So far Fy! ships over 150k products from 2,000 creators to over 30 countries - with free shipping and returns! But we're just getting started.

One of Europe's fastest growing consumer brands, we are an ambitious team of creators, designers, analysts and coders split between offices in London, Berlin and Zoom. We're backed by top European & US VCs and angels who've previously worked in or invested in businesses such as Deliveroo, Thread, Instacart, Superawesome and ASOS to name a few.**

The Role

Together with your squad you'll be empowered to determine the best way to write and maintain high quality software to solve our customers' problems, whether through creating delightful user experiences or building robust and scalable third-party integrations. You will take ownership of your code in production, including deployment and monitoring.

You will have opportunities to work across the entire stack. Our backend services are largely developed in Clojure with an emphasis on simplicity and maintainability, and deployed to AWS. Our web and app clients are developed in ClojureScript and React(Native).**

  • Clojure/ClojureScript experience
