posted 6 months ago via

Yumpingo is a platform that delivers business-changing insights to restaurants based on real-time reviews from diners, collected through our devices at the end of the meal. Last year over a million people completed our 1-minute review, enabling restaurants across the UK and US (such as Wagamama, TGI Fridays and Bill’s) to transform the quality of their food and service. This year, many more people will interact with our apps as we broaden out our product offering to restaurants and diners.

You must have at least 3-4 years experience with Node.js/Typescript, MySQL and Github.

We need to know that you can build back end solutions that will scale and that you’re thorough with your testing.

  • Node.js - TypeScript (nest framework)
  • OOP
  • TDD
  • MySQL at scale
  • Git
  • Docker

Bonus skills

  • Competitive salary
  • Remote working
  • 25 days annual leave

The recruitment process

After you submit your CV, we’ll send you a few short screening questions by email. The next step is an initial video interview. The final stage is to come and meet the team in the office if possible.
