Lead developer and co-founder at sustainability startup
at KitchenTrack in London
Food waste is one of the biggest sustainability issues globally yet there are few technologies that to help companies address it. One of the biggest areas of opportunity for new technologies is in helping retailers and food service operators cut food waste.
We are funded for the next 18 months to launch a product that is unique to the UK, but has been proven in other markets. The founders have experience in successfully building and exiting startups. We have a mix of technical and business experience. However, we need one more technical co-founder to help us as we iterate on a prototype product to develop something that is ready for commercial trade.
The role will be a mix of on-site problem solving to identify customer needs and lean-startup based development to refine our prototype from a proof of concept to a more scalable system. Your time will be 20% on site with the client, 80% development of an android application paired with a web app.
Compensation will be in a mix of salary and equity (total value of £40,000 to £60,000 depending on experience and skills) with options to define the mix of salary and equity based on your financial needs.
Our prototype was only a proof of concept. You and the CTO will work closely together to improve the prototype design based on feedback from our pilot customer. Given the scope of work, you will need to be comfortable with full-stack web development, have some java/android experience, and be able to work closely with our pilot customer.

• Ability to think creatively and problem solve solutions on site with clients
• Java and Android development experience
