Who is REKKI?

REKKI is an app that makes ordering between independent restaurants and suppliers easier, more efficient and more accountable. 

Engineering at REKKI

We work in small, focussed teams and take ownership of the things we build, allowing everyone to have impact and influence. Our user-centric approach means we collaborate with people across the business, and we're always willing to try something new if it's the best thing for the REKKI community. We're not scared to take risks that we believe will pay off in the long term, even if that means building our own tools from scratch.

    • Be involved in discussions shaping our culture and the direction of REKKI

Your skills

    • Experience working with and optimizing relational databases (Postgres)
    • Experience building and using high quality APIs (JSON/REST-based and otherwise)
    • Proficiency with git + GitHub or GitLab

Nice to have

    • Understanding of the challenges in building distributed applications
    • Experience working with message broker systems (RabbitMQ, Kafka)
    • Experience working with NoSQL databases
    • Experience building microservice based applications
    • Experience with infrastructure tools we use (AWS, Docker, Kubernetes, …)
