What makes us different
 
We are a B Corp
We are a B Corp - a group of about 2500 companies (like Patagonia and Ben & Jerry's) that prioritize social & environmental impact as well as profits. We can only do well if our community, environment, employees, and customers do well too. 
 
We have to engineer to move physical product; which is hard! And fun!
Scaling our technology doesn't just mean more users online, but also shipping and managing physical product at scale. Ever tried optimizing order routing across a network of distribution centers to minimize order splitting? Here's your chance. 
 
We sell real things to real people, and make an impact
We’re not selling to Silicon Valley & New York; Our customers are real families across the United States. We’ve helped hundreds of thousands of families make better decisions and use more sustainable products. 
 
We ship code to production every day
We believe the key to development speed lies in automation, testing, and incremental change (incremental change, testing, and automation ). Code isn't adding value if it's sitting in a branch; we are optimized to get to production and make an impact. 
 
We are in a truly massive market
Laundry detergent alone is a $130bn global market. And there's been little innovation in the past decade. Across consumer goods, it's the same products, sold at the same brick & mortar grocery stores. We can do better for our customers, and for the world.
 
The Team
 
Our engineering team of 13 (11 in San Francisco) works primarily in Python (we have Django, Flask, and, command line applications) and ES6 + VUE on the front end. On any given day, you’ll find engineers collaborating to track down the source of a strange pattern in our metrics, pair programming on a piece of brand new functionality, heads-down on a challenging refactor, or meeting with other departments to understand the business context for what we’re building. We are looking for exceptional developers to take on big challenges and innovate with our fast-growing team.
 
The Role
 
As a senior full stack software engineer, you will have a hand in architecting the technology and customer experience that run grove.co. You will join a team of world-class, highly motivated software engineers to deliver front-end patterns and practices that ensure developer productivity, a great end-user experience, and a performant website. We’re growing incredibly fast (5x year-over-year) and need maintainable and scalable technologies to power our website and internal tools. You’ll help make practical, deliberate decisions about which full stack technologies to adopt (our current stack is Browserify, ES6, Vue.js, and abstractions on top of the JSON-API spec backend) and make sure the team stays informed, happy, and productive as the full stack evolves.
