Fullstack Job Details

When our customers shop for groceries, there is a lot of tech at work, both customer facing and behind the scenes. We are expanding the development team that maintains and develops these systems.

Full-time · De Pijp, Amsterdam

Crisp is the supermarket app that brings you better groceries. We deliver fresh, seasonal and affordable products from independent producers to families all over the Netherlands. That’s how we make good food accessible to more people.

What we seek

We are looking for software engineers that like to work directly with their colleagues in other disciplines such as warehouse operations, retail commerce or app user experience. An ideal candidate has a background in computer science, a healthy disregard for red tape and excellent communication skills.

Engineering culture

Our approach to building software is lean and pragmatic, with a focus on building the right abstractions for our specific domain. We don't simply slap together a couple of NPM modules, but continuously balance how this impacts our managed complexity and technical debt.

Our stack currently consists of Typescript, React (Native), PostgreSQL, Golang and PHP. We prefer to work with people who have seen—or want to learn—different technologies, as we believe that all tools are a means to an end and it’s good to have some perspective.

We try hard to maintain a high level of readability of our code by putting in the time to adjust abstractions to our ever-changing business. Through extensive automated testing, we have a lot of confidence in the code we release. Everyone in the team is encouraged to touch the entire release process—there are no dedicated testers or system administrators. At Crisp, you will ship code to production on day one.

What you will do

  • Work on our entire technology stack (frontend, backend, infra, testing, development tooling) to create the best possible experience for our users.
  • Collaborate directly with specialists of other teams such as warehouse, commerce, service, finance and product.
  • Design, develop and test features from inception to rollout.
  • Create high-quality code that is easy to follow, reliable and reusable.

Who you are

We are looking for people with a strong computer science or software engineering background. And regardless of whether you're just out of school or have been doing this work for 30 years (we love to work with both!), you fit the following profile:

  • You have at least two years of experience with a general purpose programming language (Python, JavaScript, PHP, etc.).
  • You have a good understanding of database technology such as PostgreSQL.
  • You have a strong understanding of computer science fundamentals.
  • You are a passionate learner who isn’t afraid of new tools and technologies.
  • You possess a degree of pragmatism, with a drive to ship code and solve business problems.
  • Experience with React (Native) is a plus.
  • Experience working on systems that serve a large user base is a plus.
  • Extensive experience with Linux is a plus.
  • Proficiency speaking in Dutch is a plus.

What we offer

  • Working with the best: a high-profile team experienced in building and scaling ventures from the ground up, with diverse backgrounds.
  • The ability for you to learn quickly from others on the team.
  • A team culture based on modesty, openness and excellence.
  • A competitive salary and equity/stock.
  • Regular hackweeks to work on anything you find worthwhile.
  • A personal budget for yoga, sports and mobility.
  • Time to get to know your colleagues during sports, events and tastings.
  • A beautiful office in De Pijp in Amsterdam. Delicious and healthy lunch included.
  • And... a sweet discount on your Crisp groceries, because you'll likely also want to eat well at home.
We would love to hear from you! Our process starts with a technical assignment, followed up by an on-site interview. A reference check is part of our selection process.
