Impact the Future of Grocery Shopping
Consumers expect to be presented with relevant suggestions instead of searching for the ingredients. Join our product team to help them!
CURRENTLY LOOKING FOR:
Quality Assurance

Kyiv-based (but remote-friendly)
Founded in 2014 in Stockholm, Northfork is a technology company that's driving a shift in consumer expectations and retailer experiences by making recipes shoppable.
700k
ingredients across 70k recipes
400k
products across 4 retailers
300M
monthly inventory updates
6M
API calls per month
We build smart algorithms and infrastructure to allow for almost real-time stock management, apply NLP for ingredient-to-product matching, and use modern UI frameworks to create seamless user experiences.
Too many people still shop groceries like our grandparents did, by writing long lists and buying dozens of individual products. But we believe that can be elevated to a much nicer experience by moving focus to what people really want - a tasty meal.
Gastrofy is our consumer service that allows effortless shopping by recipe to consumers in Sweden (and may well expand to other markets soon). While Northfork is our core business with careful feature selection, Gastrofy is a venture allowing for more experimentation.
Northfork is a SAAS platform that makes recipes shoppable. We do this by understanding, structuring, and processing data about recipes and products in smart ways, and exposing API endpoints that allow our customers to easily build rich user experiences for seamless grocery shopping. We're proud to be a technology provider to e.g. Walmart - the world's largest retailer.
Technologies
The core technology is about converting recipes into products. We have an event-driven micro-services architecture built using PHPs Symphony, Kafka event bus, cached by Redis and Varnish, hosted on AWS and stored in MySQL. Client in written using Angular.

We are Looking for Engineers

Front-end Engineer
Experience:
3+ years
Location:
Kyiv-based (but remote-friendly)
Start:
ASAP
Along with figuring out the product-market fit for our consumer-facing service, Gastrofy, comes a need to strengthen our front-end expertise.

Our ideal candidate is an inspired engineer, with a strong passion for developing efficient user interfaces - for web and for mobile alike.
You will join a small, cross-functional team where your focus will be on evolving the user facing side of our platform. It's an Angular App today, while our ambitious product roadmap suggests that we should start looking into other technologies. React and React Native feel like the natural choices, but your help will be much needed in making this decision.

While being a driving force behind figuring out the new direction for our front-end architecture, you'll also be expected to be comfortable with supporting and expanding our existing Angular set-up.

None of these are strictly mandatory, but the ideal candidate likely has them:
  • effortless communication in English
  • degree in CS or an engineering relevant field
  • 3+ years of commercial web development
  • experience with Angular, React, and React Native
  • well-versed in architecture patterns, system design, product lifecycle

You will be part of a growing team, working in a remote-first agile environment. In your day-to-day, you will work alongside experienced engineers that love innovation.

We encourage all our engineers to go outside of their comfort zone, try new languages, solutions, implementations.

As we expand the team and streamline our processes, the need for quality assurance increases.

Our ideal candidate has a mix of product management, process management, and engineering passions and skills, while possessing a perfectionist mindset with extreme attention to details.

You will join a small, cross-functional team, where your focus will be on integrating modern QA practices into our product development lifecycle. You will frequently communicate with the product owner, validate work done by the development team, conduct testing prior to releases, automate as much testing as feasible, and be generally involved in product development on a daily basis - monitor performance and suggest improvements, refine the development and team collaboration processes, discuss plans and strategies for future development, etc.

None of these are strictly mandatory, but the ideal candidate likely has them:
  • effortless communication in English
  • engineering background
  • 2+ years involvement in commercial product development (may be in different roles)
  • well versed in modern QA processes and best practices
  • experience with test automation

You will be part of a growing team, working in a remote-first agile environment. In your day-to-day, you will work alongside experienced engineers that love innovation.
