Do you want to build an innovative product that is in its crucial stage of development? How would you like to work on a product that spreads floral joy to over 100,000 customers across Europe? bloomon is a fast-growing online-only flower delivery scaleup. Since 2014, our revolutionary technology has been at the heart of everything we do, powering our business forward. You’d be joining an iconic European flower brand with more than 100k customers across 5 countries and a diversely talented team of 100+ people and growing. What challenges are waiting for our next Python Engineer? Well, we are currently scaling up...“pedal to the metal”! Bad puns aside, this means a 10x increase in volume and added technical complexity. You’ll also be solving a migration puzzle, writing LOTS of brand-new code and building/maintaining some internal tooling that we built and that's used across the business, even on the production lines. We are far from just an e-commerce company and you will be surprised at the amount of tech in flowers.
