We're looking for a Back End Developer

Alex Alex 22 Jun 2022 We're looking for a Back End Developer

Shop Like You Give a Damn is growing fast and we have more plans than we can manage and execute with our three developers Alex, Tim and Bruno. That's why we are looking for a junior or medior back end (or full stack) developer to work on our custom website and back end system with us!

Who are we?

Shop Like You Give a Damn is the largest 100% vegan, fair and sustainable online department store in Europe. Our marketplace offers a collection of ethical clothing, bags, shoes, accessories, home essentials, makeup and care products for essentially everyone, from hundreds of ethical brands and sellers.

Shop Like You Give a Damn was founded by Stephan, Kim and Alex: three enthusiasts who with their team, great plans and a healthy dose of impatience, are on a mission to turn the shopping world upside down. We say: shop with compassion. As little as possible. But when you do buy something, make it a vegan, fair and sustainable purchase. That is kind to all beings on earth. Kind to our fellow animals, to our fellow people, to all future generations.

Our mission is to make compassion and sustainability the new normal, by making ethical and mindful shopping really easy for everyone. That’s why we founded the largest online vegan department store for fair and sustainable products in Europe. For those who give a damn.

What are you going to do?

We are looking for a junior or medior developer to work on our custom website and back-end system. Here's the knowledge and experience you'll need to have:

You probably won't work with the following technologies, but knowledge of them can be beneficial:
