Tech Lead wanted for grocery shopping tech startup

Salary Competitive
Equity To be negotiated
We’re here to make grocery shopping a hands-off experience through smart technology. In an old industry full of potential for innovation, we aim to lead the way, and with two of the world's most recognized companies in the food space as new customers of our SAAS platform, it's time for us to scale! We're now looking for a Tech Lead to join us on this journey, to lead and learn, together with the rest of the team.

Is this you? 🙌

“My current professional career is slowing down, and even though I’ve made a large impact where I am, I need a new challenge that will further propel my development. I love fast speed of iteration, but due to organizational size and complexity at my current job, things just move too slow. I crave speed and having a more direct impact.”

You’re a senior developer, proficient with languages like PHP and Java, with at least 5 years of rich experience. You are a person that enjoys the thrill and intimacy of a startup, creating something end-to-end to solve customer problems, and working closely with your team to deliver on priorities in smart ways. You may be living in Sweden, or you may not be. We’re a remote-first company, but we value meeting face-to-face every once in a while.

Taking the next step in your career can be both frightening and exhilarating. Especially joining a startup. We know because we’ve all been there. As senior developers and product managers from Spotify, Linas Matkasse, Schibsted etc. we have experienced first hand the emotional roller coaster of leaving our high paying “safe” jobs for a job where our input is directly correlated with the success of the company and in return, ourselves.


Our company and mission 🚀

At Northfork we believe in a world where grocery shopping can be put on autopilot. We are creating a system that learns what food you like and dislike, your health profile and what your schedule looks like, and we will help you with everything from preparing your personal meal plan to delivering the groceries to your door, as well as cooking an amazing meal.

We are proud to have recently signed Walmart and Tasty as our first US customers, and we also have ICA, Coop SE and Coop DK as long-term customers. Beyond B2B, we also have, a consumer product, in our portfolio that spearheads our development, where our fantasies can roam free, and where we can experiment to learn.


The role

As Tech Lead you will be working closely with the full company, from the other developers to product & business leadership, and your work will range from actively writing code day-to-day, to creating and evangelizing a technical vision, identifying key work that needs priority, and scoping solutions. We will lean on you to help balance the need for speed in the short run with quality and maintainability in the long run, including setting a strategy for e.g. migration of some of our current PHP services over to e.g. Java, and aligning technical principles that the company should adhere to for long-term success.

We would love to talk to you, learn more about who you are and what drives you, as well as tell you more about anything from our technology stack to how we believe we can make people’s lives easier and more inspiring through intelligent recipe shopping.

Working at

Northfork is changing the way we shop food. Shopping online removes the need to go to the store, but shopping by recipe eliminates the three energy thieves; Figuring out what to eat, Searching for the products, and Improvising in the kitchen. At the core of Northfork is a world leading technology platform that understands the complex relationship between user generated ingredients, products at any retailer and your personal preferences so you can eat healthy and varied in less than 10 clicks.  We focus 100% on our customers. Our customers range from large retailers to end users, and everything we do is based on their needs and desires. Other than focusing on our customers, we like to get things done and be proactive as well as independent. We also like working out together and going out for a beer from time to time (although, a little bit difficult as our team members are located in different parts of the world). At Northfork, every team member is involved in decision making. We do workshops where we decide tactics and strategy together. Since only some of us are based in Stockholm, we optimize for remote-first work and spend time together using tools like Slack, Google Meet and Miro. All of us are very results-driven, and we all share the same vision: to change the way consumers shop food.
