We’re reinventing delivery!

Circuit is a distributed SaaS company building a software platform that improves the experience and efficiency of last-mile delivery.

Our platform spans the entire breadth of the last-mile delivery process, from deciding which packages are to be delivered by which drivers, through optimizing each individual driver's route, all the way to alerting the recipient that their delivery is 5 minutes away from being delivered.

More than 10,000 drivers at hundreds of companies rely on Circuit to complete their day's work, making ~35M deliveries every year.

In the future, we envision a consumer platform where individuals can manage, schedule and reschedule the vast majority of their deliveries from one place, regardless of the company carrying out the actual delivery.

We’re looking to expand our team with an additional senior frontend engineer.

We’re looking for someone who cares about quality code; beautiful, purposeful design; and that is comfortable working in a remote environment with a lot of autonomy.

Your Profile/Skills

  • 4+ years of professional experience developing web apps with JavaScript

  • 2+ years of professional experience developing web apps with Ember.js (preferred)

  • Personal side projects, or project ownership experience preferred.

  • Experience working remotely preferred.

Your Role

  • Build web applications with Ember.js

  • Enforce agreed-upon code standards and continue to escalate our quality

  • Help architect new Apps/APIs

  • Help maintain and improve existing systems

  • Our Stack

  • Circuit is built on top of the Firebase and Google Cloud platform. Our web app is built entirely with Ember.

  • We use GitHub and Jira to get things organized and built.

How We Work

  • We are a small team of 6, 4 of which are developers.

  • You’ll work alongside our existing front-end developer.

  • We encourage teammates to bring in well-reasoned opinions, productively disagree with us, and to make decisions based on technical merits.

  • We’re obsessed with continuous improvement, and we’re not afraid to scrap work if we figure out a better way to do things.

  • Our web application is still in the early stages, and as a result, we look for opportunities to get 80% of the gain from 20% of the effort, delaying the other 20% for later.

We offer:

  • ~£60k Salary + Equity

  • The flexibility to explore other disciplines in our stack

  • The ability to work flexibly

  • Swift decision making and flat hierarchies

  • A high degree of autonomy in your work

    What you'll do

    • Work on the Rainforest QA dashboard, our single page application where users manage their test suite, configure test runs, review results and set up their account

    • Work on our tester application, where our crowd of testers connect to our virtual machine infrastructure to conduct tests and submit their results

    • Professional experience in engineering SaaS products

    • Experience leading projects with teams

    • An ownership mindset: you should look not only at what you’re asked to do, but ask why you’re doing it and how it impacts on the rest of the product, our customers, and whether it makes sense. We expect you to be responsible for your work and to resolve any bugs you might ship

    • Comfortable working in a large codebase with many stakeholders

    • Identify with our company values

This also means brevity, clarity of thought, and clarity of communication. We give and take feedback without ego, with the knowledge that we all are operating with good intent. No ego is the check system to balance no BS and keep it kind. No ad-hominem attacks.

    • 1% better every day: Continuous improvement is what motivates us. We design our product, our organization and our careers to be continually improving. Mistakes are only bad if they are repeated. Experiments are only wasted if they are not learned from.

    • Own the journey: We are all owners. We demand that of each other. The journey we own is threefold: our customers’ journey, our company’s journey and our personal journey. Our reason for existence is to nail our customer journey, so that we can scale our company’s success.

    • Flexible, remote work options

    • Generous vacation time

    • Competitive compensation and stock options

    • Professional development, career coaching, and conference attendance

    • 3 offsites per year: every ~4 months we arrange an offsite for the whole company to get together so we can get to know our colleagues better and understand what we need to do. The location is ever changing, so you will get to see some new places!

    At Rainforest QA we believe that diverse teams improve our business. We are an equal opportunity employer and do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, nationality, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status.
