Lead the development of a new eco-system
We are looking for an experienced engineer willing to take the reins of developing an on-premise kiosk system, mobile application and future peripheral integrations.
You will be responsible for creating and leading a software development team to bring our vision alive in close collaboration with our founder, product designers, hardware and beverage teams.
Autonomy and responsibility in a completely new team
As the lead engineer, you will own the entire development of all software parts. Although an initial technology stack has been selected to be able to quickly kickstart this project, you will be able to greatly influence the direction of all things technological as the company grows.
Aside from being hands-on in this completely new project, you will be able to select your team members, hiring either locally or offshore.
Although the first year of development and launch will be based in Japan and focus on the Japanese market, the company intends to go globally fast, and our founders, partners and investors are international (though often with some Japanese background). For this reason, we are looking to hire an international team. Much communication will happen in Japanese, but the company’s first language is English.
As the first version of our project will launch in mid-2024, we have selected Flutter and FlutterFlow for the development of the user applications. This will allow us to quickly get the first versions of the application out and tested while still allowing us to branch out and move over to complete custom Flutter development as required.
Our product will also consist of a kiosk-type interface for vending machines on-site. This involves integration with native third-party SDKs and the deployment and management of these devices.
The system will use Supabase as a backend architecture, although other solutions and services will be added as needed in the long term. As a lead engineer of the project, you will be expected to be able to hire and lead other engineers working both on the backend and front end of these products, as well as contributing yourself.
