Here’s our deal.
Retail is at a turning point. The wholesale industry is a trillion-dollar market divided between 1.2MM retailers. In the past, the market had been dominated by big-box stores, largely selling the same products from the same national brands – but the consumer has changed.
Today, consumers are purchasing smaller, independent brands that are healthier, more environmentally friendly, more ethical. Consumers have moved their spending to independent retailers (both online and offline) who they share values with, and who provide the best curated selections of craft brands.
This is where Hubba comes in. We’re a marketplace that allows independent retailers to purchase products directly from the planet’s hottest craft brands to carry on their store shelves. We use a combination of machine learning and personal curation to match these retailers with their next best seller.
Here’s what the role’s about.
To get there, we need a product (and the supporting underlying architecture/infrastructure) that delivers real value to our users. The Senior Backend Developer is the individual charged with shipping efficient, scalable code that brings this product to life. This means:
How the reporting structure works:
Reports to the Team Lead, Engineering; Individual contributor role (no direct reports)
Here’s what you need to be successful.
Bonus points for, but not necessary:
What we offer.
We’re doing something big. The platform and company we’re building has a real global impact, and you’re getting in early enough to play a material part in our success. The work you will do has a direct bearing on our trajectory and performance as a company. Hubba will invest in you, help you be better and help you go further.
You’ll be surrounded and supported by some amazing people who are light on ego, high on curiosity, and are passionate about changing retail for the better. The senior leadership are grown ups who have built things before and are building a business, not a frat house or summer camp.
If you’re interested, let us know why we should talk. We are proud to foster a workplace free from discrimination. We strongly believe that diversity of experience, perspectives, and background will lead to a better environment for our employees and a better product for our users. This is something we value deeply, and we encourage everyone to come be a part of this!
