Do you want to build generic tools all your life, or do you want to come with me and save the world?
If you haven’t heard of us, we’re the world’s only neighbour-to-neighbour food sharing app, and we’ve been featured in Apple’s WWDC closing video, on BBC World Hacks, on Jamie & Jimmy’s Friday Night Feast, and in publications all over the world. Not to brag but we’ve also won countless awards and we get so much good publicity because what we are doing is so obvious and so important. Here at OLIO, we’re tackling the massive global problems of: • food waste • hunger • social isolation • plastic waste ….all wrapped up into a neat device held in your very palm. Simply put, our mission is to reduce food waste in the home, through harnessing the power of digital technology, and coupling it with a passionate community. We’re looking for a WordPress plugin Developer to join us on a temporary placement to help update our existing plugin to support new features of the app. We anticipate that you will be working 10-20 hours per week and we will be paying the living wage. Your work will be seen by millions of people every year via our website and help drive new visitors to our app through SEO (Search Engine Optimisation). Technologies we work with are: • Wordpress plugins • CSS • API • PHP You’ll get to work with a great team (aren’t we all?), a great amount of autonomy, plus a lot of support, and knowing each day that you are making a huge difference. Mission fit is very important to us, so if food waste/environmentalism isn’t something important to you then this probably isn’t the position you are looking for. Similarly, if you’d consider writing code without it being backed up with a good set of unit tests then please hit ‘next’.
