Director of App Development (Full-Stack JavaScript)


Spoonzy’s mission is to make it easier and more affordable to eat healthily at home. We’re doing that by radically simplifying grocery shopping.

As food consumers, we are given a bad choice between convenience or affordability. Services like HelloFresh or Deliveroo are convenient, but expensive. Shopping from Tesco is affordable, but requires alot of mental effort. Spoonzy is creating a new, better option. We combine the convenience of meal kits with the cost of shopping through or any local supermarket.

You will join the CEO, Director of Marketing, and Head of Content to become an integral founding team member. Through long-term commitment to our mission, you will earn a large equity stake.

This is a unique opportunity to develop an app from an early stage, and make a huge impact. Spoonzy is a product that connects with a large proportion of society. Long term, we anticipate your role growing into an executive level role as our company grows.

This is an opportunity for only the most entrepreneurial, creative, and determined individuals. Spoonzy is still a startup, and there will be major challenges, but it will be worth it.

Core Responsibilities

You will be responsible for Spoonzy’s ongoing app development. You build will build on our existing stack of React Native, Node, and Mongo.

Early in your tenure, you will have four core jobs:

1. Ideate and design new features with the CEO

2. Implement these in Javascript

3. Manage external designers and developers where necessary

4. Manage our analytics

As Spoonzy grows, you will hire and manage our tech team.


You should have at least 2 years’ experience creating full stack applications with React Native, Node, and Mongo DB. Computer science degrees are preferred.

You will not only have coding skills, but also design, creative, and product management skills. You will be able to take features from idea, to prototype, to full implementation. You will have a trained design eye. This will allow you to effectively grow into being our head of product.

About You

You will have an open, scientific, test-driven mindset. You will obsessively measure the impact of our product changes on our core retention and engagement metrics. Your analytical skills will enable you to spot product problems and opportunities within Spoonzy’s analytics data.

You will be collaborative and creative, allowing you brainstorm ideas for new features. You will not assume you know the answer to important feature questions, and you will know how to ask the right questions to get to the bottom of any issue.

Finally, you will have an enduring optimism as we face inevitable set-backs, contributing to a company culture that relentlessly drives forward.


£36/year + 5-15% equity

You will receive a base salary in addition to your equity. You will join Spoonzy because you believe that your equity stake will eventually be worth a life-changing amount of money. In other words, you will believe in our mission, and you will believe in your ability to help grow the value of our company dramatically.
