Who We Are
The grocery industry is in a state of flux. Consumers are embracing technologies, devices, and services that make everyday tasks like shopping, cooking, and list-making quicker, easier, more fun, and more efficient. Mercatus empowers grocers to adopt this change driven by consumer demand, allowing them to grow with the evolving needs of today’s shoppers. We create and build web and mobile applications exclusively for grocery retailers, helping them to extend their brand’s online presence, offer personalized experiences to their customers, and sell their products on the web. This is all done through one cohesive, enterprise-grade SaaS platform.
Your primary responsibility will be to build industrial-strength, scalable PHP applications (both client-side and RESTful API). This will also mean contributing to application improvement and optimization through code audits, refactoring, and caching. You’ll implement new features, develop schema and unit tests, and maintain user interfaces. Most importantly, you’ll contribute to our innovation.
Additionally, we are committing to rebuilding some legacy applications using the latest and greatest technologies available. You will be able to contribute to a completely new stack of tools and applications built on open-source libraries.
Who Should Apply
You’re excited to combine your technical skills and understanding of the principles of quality and reliable software development. You are familiar with using continuous delivery/integration methodologies and have demonstrated success in transforming feature requirements into clean, maintainable code. You are creative, forward-thinking, and have the desire and insight to challenge the status quo and contribute to making software as stable, as fast, and as high performing as they can be. Oh, and you’re great at interacting with fellow humans.
