About the role

About The Position

You will be working closely with our Head of Engineering and a team of talented software and product people to take Flint to the next level. We already have a strong mission and product with traction led by our product-led growth strategy.

We believe the future of the food supply chain is by helping foodservice companies find the right products at the best price while reducing, with value innovation, the schlep created by the current state of the food supply chain, an industry ripe for disruption.

We're looking for our first few engineers to help us lay the foundation for our supply chain logistics product. In this role, you will be wearing multiple hats, you'll be given critical high-level problems to solve, you'll be given a high degree of freedom and responsibility to do your best work, you'll be working in a small team (<10) meaning your work will have an incredible and lasting impact, and you'll get to build something new and exciting at a very early stage (like joining Google in 1999).

As Senior Software Engineer, you'll be an integral part of setting the product vision and strategy while solving the customer problems to build the product that will make us THE platform for the food supply chain and 10x the business.

About you

  • You're disciplined - you believe in a self-disciplined organization where people self-organize, and everyone leads and initiates good customer outcomes.
  • You're curious and empathetic - You care about and want to learn about our users and team.
  • You have product engineering experience - You've led product increments before, and you've measured its success based on good customer outcomes.
  • You work with urgency - We're in a race against time to 10x the business; you work on the right things and get them done.
  • You have high standards - You know what good looks like, and you work with your team to get there. You apply good engineering and design practices systemically.
  • You're passionate - you've designed and architect excellent software products before.
  • You've demonstrated a mastery in functional programming - with languages such as F#, Elm, Haskell, Erlang, Elixir, ML, OCaml, Lisp, Scheme, Scala, Clojure, Racket, Julia in an academic, personal or professional context.
