Company mission

To be the operational brain of your D2C company, so that you can focus on other aspects of your business.

Role

Who you are

  • You’ve done this before. Multiple times. Ideally, you've written a lot of Rails code before, building complex applications and systems that just work
  • We’re looking to work with experienced people who can pick a problem and solve it — this will probably mean that you've worked as a Software Engineer for 5+ years
  • Builder at heart. Creating from scratch excites you. Figuring out how to solve problems is one of your favorite activities. Building, scaling, and rapidly iterating upon the software is what keeps you going
  • You care about quality. You champion and deliver rigorously tested, documented, and maintainable code — you know how much time it'll save you down the line
  • You care about the business impact. Perfect software is not the only thing — you care about the business impact of your products, and make trade-offs when necessary

Desirable

  • You have experience with RSpec for writing specs
  • You bring along deep knowledge of OOP and Test-Driven-Development
  • Experience in building Warehouse Management Software (WMS)
  • Proven track record of implementing e-commerce integrations like Shopify, SendCloud, Shopware, Billbee, WooCommerce, or others

What the job involves

  • We are looking for a Senior Software Engineer to join the team and help build out the backend of our Warehouse Management Software
  • Your work will impact hundreds of commerce brands and millions of end customers across our merchant-facing product (“Hive App”), our end customer offering (“Customer Portal” and “Delivery Promise”), and our Warehouse Management Software
  • What you'll be doing
  • Shipping high-quality product: In the end, what matters is what our customers and internal users are using on a day-to-day basis
  • Lead the technical design, development, and maintenance of functionality on the backend, ensuring we’re building a high quality product
  • Work closely with product managers, leads, and fellow engineers to translate product requirements into technical specifications, developing new functionality and enhancing the existing product(s)
  • Identify and address performance bottlenecks, design and implement scalable solutions that can handle increasing user demands and data volumes, ensure sustained performance of our application code for highly performant operations
  • Participate in cross-team discussions shaping the technical direction of our technical stack
  • Additionally, as a Senior Software Engineer, you'll have the chance to shape the product and the team on a higher level by owning features end-to-end, mentoring, and pairing with younger engineers

Otta's take

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

Streamlining commerce operations requires the participation of various departments, which can complicate the purchase-to-delivery cycle and lead to delays. Hive’s platform helps to streamline commerce operations through a network of operations providers.

Hive’s Warehouse Management System works in tandem with its Transport Management System to organise and economise the operations of eCommerce businesses. Importantly, its network of solutions means that users can give their customers an accurate delivery date from the moment of purchase online. This leads to a better experience that can help foster loyalty and support repeat purchases.

This is an attractive proposition, especially as eCommerce begins to take over from the high street and consumer expectations continue to rise. Investors have recognised this potential in Hive, which intends to use its latest funding round to accelerate growth and product development, with the aim to reach profitability by 2025.
