Opportunities for permanent roles in a range of business sectors

Senior Developer

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 take the platform to the next level. 

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. But we want our tech to be truly world leading and we need someone to put this ambition into practice.

We’re looking for someone who is happy to get their hands dirty and be competent enough to take on multiple roles. As well as getting stuck into the code, you’ll need to have the ability to help build the longer-term strategy and set the agenda for all new development work.

You’ll need to be confident and effective at all aspects of web development, from efficient database management and server backend handling, to writing cutting-edge client-side code and creating attractive and intuitive client experiences. Our systems are based on standard web technologies - a MySQL database, PHP for server-side code, and javascript in the browser. 

We’re a small business with big ambitions and you’ll relish the challenges and opportunities that come with this. 

About Zedify

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.

Day to day you’ll be understanding the challenges from our depots and be looking to put in place solutions to make processes simpler and more efficient. You’ll understand how important the client experience is and be able to make key decisions that will allow Zedify’s services to expand rapidly.

You’ll need to have experience in web development, databases and API integrations. We’re looking for someone who demonstrates initiative and an ability to problem solve, rather than big visionaries or someone with a very specific set of coding skills.

As long as you’re up for the challenge, we’ll be here to support and work with you to make this something great. 

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. We share our head office in Cambridge with 10 other small businesses and charities that are working to make our cities better places to be. It’s a busy but friendly and informal atmosphere.

Salary range £30-50k but negotiable for an exceptional candidate. We’re most keen on getting the right person.
