Intro

Trouva is one of the fastest growing tech businesses in Europe, one of  Wired Magazine's hottest European Startups and is 3rd in the prestigious Startups 100 Index, ranking the UK’s best high growth startups.

A software-enabled marketplace, Trouva brings customers beautiful homewares from the best independent boutiques around the world. We’re building a different kind of e-commerce experience, driven by discovery and inspiration. Using cutting edge technology, Trouva harnesses the expertise of the best bricks-and-mortar shops from Shoreditch to Stockholm, and scales their offering online to connect with a global customer base seeking unique, hard-to-find homewares.

Backed by world-leading investors, we’re growing incredibly quickly and are looking for exceptional people to join the Trouva family.

The Role

As a Full-stack Engineer you’ll work closely with the rest of the team to progress Trouva’s technology platform. The challenge is diverse: you’ll have the opportunity to work on inventory management, order processing, internal communication tools, but also, and maybe most importantly, on creating an alternative shopping experience for the Trouva customer.


We are a Full-stack Javascript team utilising a one-language for all approach that allows us to work together efficiently and provide great experiences. It also means that we get to play with shiny new things often which we’re quite happy about. In the end though, we are product engineers and are driven by providing the best possible experience to our customers. 

Main requirements

  • 2+ working experience
  • Experience/experimentation with Javascript on the server-side. Able to discuss Node.js and understand situations where it would be appropriate.
  • Experience working with or at least a solid understanding of configuration management tools such as Ansible, Puppet, Chef. Understanding of the role of load balancers and DNS, able to setup a basic infrastructure with some direction.
  • Experience having designed at least one API or subset of functionality from scratch. Able to discuss needs from both server side implementation and client side needs.

Nice to have

  • If Javascript is not your primary language, then experience with multiple languages and demonstrable ability to pick up new languages without significant hand-holding is key. 
  • Experience working with CI/CD, able to discuss different testing approaches and have a good understanding of difference between things like unit/integration tests.
  • You’ve got experience testing applications, through unit, behaviour & integration tests. You understand that testing is essential to build robust applications and you’re experienced with setting up the appropriate test tooling to ensure rapid development and continuous deployment.
  • You’ve previously been exposed to at least one front-end production application and have a keen interest in learning more about building beautiful experiences for the end-user. 

Perks

  • 25 days holiday + bank holidays
  • Macbook Pro and Bose Noise cancelling headphones as standard issue and other accessories such as monitor, keyboard and mice to suit your needs
  • A beautiful office space in Central Lisbon, with unlimited coffee, snacks and fresh fruit
  • Regular team events where we celebrate our success and people, including weekly meditation, and Pizza Friday's!
  • Unlimited staff discount on all Trouva products and a Trouva gift card to get something awesome for your desk
