About the role:

Genie Shopping has been at the forefront of Shopping Ads development since the platform was first opened to comparison shopping sites (CSS) in 2017. One of our CSS, Crowdstorm, was amongst the first whitelisted as ‘Google approved’ and we’ve been a Google CSS Partner ever since. Genie Shopping is a brand of Genie Ventures, which is a successful, entrepreneurial, debt-free, 70-person tech business based in Cambridge.

We are looking for a lead developer with a proven history of writing great, efficient, clean code in order to help scale the business in a sustainable way through continual improvement of our automated processes, bidding systems and the development of our price comparison tools.

This role is a chance to join an early-stage product with big ambitions. Genie Shopping has made a great start and has a proven business model (and 100%+ growth this year). The successful candidate will play a key role as part of a newly formed product dev team within a multi-functional, agile, mission-based business.

We are based in Cambridge but due to the flexible nature of the business we would be very open to candidates working remotely as part of a distributed team.

Tech Stack: 

The technology stack in use within the engineering team is already using many de-facto industry standards. Still, it is essential that the technology stack remains agile and can deal with our client platforms’ changing landscape. Technology: Symfony, AWS, Elastic Search, RedShift, PHP, JavaScript, React, Stimulus.js, REST.
