Picnic is an app-only supermarket. We’re data driven with software at our core. Our world-class developers write immaculate code to support the world’s fastest growing supermarket. We’re on a quest for like-minded people to be part of the future of digital grocery shopping.

🏦 Where you fit in

Our developers are integrated, involved, and essential to each part of our company. From route planning, scaling our customer analytics to handle millions of messages, to how many bananas we should have in our warehouse on a Thursday – they write, plan, and predict.

As one of our Java Developers, you take ownership of projects, learn, and work collaboratively with your colleagues. You constantly design, test, evolve, and evaluate the nuts and bolts of our operation while offering a creative and analytical approach.

The high-quality code that stems from your fingertips is stylish, sexy, and robust. You just love to build ultra-scalable systems. You’re at home writing platforms and you display an intricate understanding of how each line of code fits into a business plan.

Your skills will be complemented with the latest tech. We are committed to pushing development wherever possible: we started using Java 11 in January 2019 for all of our backend.

At Picnic we have diverse projects to keep you interested. Think you should focus on Android development? That’s fine - you’ll have the freedom to experiment and evolve your own abilities.

We don’t hide our developments. We open-source with the community that helped us grow. If you require more motivation to apply - check out our page:  http://picnic.tech
