Senior Frontend Engineer

Nydalen, Oslo
Product & Tech – Software Engineering
Full-time
Kolonial.no is by far the leading online grocery in Norway, but as a company we’re first and foremost an ambitious tech and logistics company - not a classic retailer. We’re one of the fastest growing startups in the Nordics, working with huge, complex challenges in order to make the lives of our customers simpler and easier. Want to join us?

Our goal is to create the world's most efficient retail system. Through smart work, passionate customer focus and our own technology we make a difference in the lives of thousands of customers and change society for the better through a completely re-imagined value chain for grocery shopping.

Our customers save more than 60 hours a year, time we believe can be better spent than going to the store. Our effective value chain and logistics save society tonnes of food waste each year and each additional electric vehicle on the road through our distribution network replace almost 13,000 individual trips by car to the grocery store each year.

As a Senior Frontend Engineer you will be a part of a visionary Product & Tech team organised in cross-functional product teams with software engineers, designers, product managers and data scientists. You’ll work with designers and full-stack developers to make innovative solutions that make the shopping experience for our customers or our internal Kolonial.no systems user-friendly and efficient. We’re creating a new standard for everyday shopping and solving the complex logistics associated with it, and we think great UI and UX are fundamental to this.
