SOFTWARE DEVELOPER POSITION
Zedify is shaking things up in the logistics sector by transforming the way first and last mile deliveries are done. Our unique system for consolidated, zero emission deliveries ensures consumers get their items how and when they want, and is helping to create healthier, more liveable cities.
At the heart of the business is a powerful, easy-to-use web interface to our systems for our clients and staff. We’re looking for an ambitious and capable developer to work alongside our CTO in developing the tools to help make first and last mile deliveries in cities better.
At Zedify we welcome applications from every part of the community regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, race or disability.
Our dedicated tech platform allows our customers to book and view their deliveries in real time and gives our depots the tools to manage and assign deliveries in the best possible way.
We’re looking for a software developer to work with the CTO on the software used by our depot managers, our riders and our clients. The work will be varied and include coding and testing UI improvements; implementing back-end changes; and working out technical designs for feature enhancements. The primary aspect of the role is software development which encompasses technical design, discussion with others about requirements, coding, testing and troubleshooting.
We’re a small business with big ambitions and you’ll relish the challenges and opportunities that come with this.
Zedify works by utilising depots on the edge of urban areas that act as a gateway for small items coming in and out of the area. We re-mode to large electric cargo trikes ensuring we are faster and more agile and can hit the narrow time windows consumers are demanding. By consolidating deliveries going to the same area, we are more efficient.
Zedify was established in 2018 and is a licenced network of independent zero emission delivery operators with a unified brand, business system and shared technology platform. In the past year, we delivered over 350,000 items out of our 8 UK depots.
Who we’re looking for
You’ll be naturally talented at coding but also have the ability to communicate well. You’ll want to make a difference and be part of a team that’s excited about making our cities more liveable. Disappearing into a large organisation or doing the same thing every day doesn't appeal.
We’re looking for someone who demonstrates initiative and an ability to problem solve, rather than someone with a very specific set of coding skills. As long as you’re up for the challenge and can learn fast, we'll be here to support and work with you to ensure you can make a big impact. The role could suit a recent graduate as well as someone with more experience.
We are currently working remotely with frequent communication via email, Slack and other channels as appropriate. We are Cambridge based so there will be some expectation to travel to meetings here. The role is full-time but with an option for part-time working for the right candidate.
What it offers
You'll be joining a small but growing team, so you'll get early responsibility and the work you will do will immediately make a difference.
Salary range £25-35k but negotiable for an exceptional candidate. We’re most keen on getting the right person.
