Are you a Software Engineer looking for a new challenge? Do you want to be part of an expanding tech team where you can perform and advocate for great software development in a fast-moving and evolving environment? Then this is the role for you.

The Modern Milkman started as a local milkround inspired by David Attenborough's Blue Planet and the need to reduce plastic waste. In the space of a few short years, we've grown from four friends and a van to a vast network of milkmen and women.

We specialise in reducing consumer waste, with ethically sourced groceries, online ordering and convenient doorstep deliveries. Our mobile tech allows us to support local dairies and independent farmers and suppliers by connecting them to our network of milk rounds. We're committed to plastic-free packaging and are continually innovating to expand our return and reuse range.

Our business is ever-evolving, but our intent is steadfast. Our mission is to revolutionise consumer habits by delivering fresh ways to return and reuse packaging, shop ethically, and feel good about convenience.

As a Software Engineer, you will be responsible for the development of our bespoke ecommerce and operations platform. Our platform covers everything we do from a customer's first sign up, through to managing delivery and operational activities such as stock management. This is the opportunity to make your mark on a platform that is constantly growing and evolving.


The successful candidate will:

  • Help design and build out our platform
  • Ensure that quality is at the heart of their delivery
  • Passionate about tech and up to date on latest trends
  • Work with on and offshore colleagues
  • Be an active team player

  • Good understanding of Agile practices and tools (Kanban, Scrum etc.)
  • Appreciation of design patterns e.g. MVC
  • Use of CI/CD
  • Unit Testing frameworks
  • Integration of analytic platforms such as google analytics


  • Previous ecommerce or logistics experience
  • Previous experience of working with remote teams an advantage
  • React Native
  • Previous app development skills
  • Use of A/B Testing and/or conversion rate optimisation tools



The Modern Milkman is an amazing business to work in with a super exciting and executable vision. Our team members are rewarded well, not only from a salary perspective but also with:

  • Competitive salary, pension and other company benefits
  • Participation in the EMI share option scheme
  • High level of responsibility from day one
  • The opportunity to rapidly advance your career
  • Working with a fun, energetic, and supportive team

And not to forget…
