As one of the fastest growing e-commerce companies in Asia, RedMart offers an unparalleled startup experience. Our culture: entrepreneurial, fiercely intelligent, team oriented, deeply creative and whatever you add to it!  We’re fanatical about improving our customer experience and providing “wow” customer service.

At RedMart, iOS Engineers, Android Engineers and frontend/backend engineers work closely together in a small team to deliver a consistent and cross-platform experience to users. They get involved in projects early to really understand the business goals and contribute to UI/UX design process. They do not stop at meeting business objectives but always improving the product to delight customers. In addition to our consumer apps, we build custom Android applications for our warehouse workers and delivery drivers.

  • We have big plans to disrupt the traditional grocery retail market and become a $Billion+ company in the next few years
  • Everything we do is focused on empowering our customers
  • We work really hard
  • We have a lot of fun!
  • Try this coding challenge, and we'll look at you resume before others. Alternatively, if you wish to challenge yourself with a more difficult coding puzzle give this coding challenge a try.

At RedMart software engineers use technology to delight our customers. They innovate to make our customers’ lives better. And since RedMart does e-commerce from the online storefront all the way to home delivery, there are lots of areas to make an impact with technology. Can we improve warehouse efficiency to get the orders delivered faster? Can we reduce delivery costs so we can save our customers money? Can we make it easier for them to find the products they need and checkout?

As a Front-end Engineer you will:

  • Work as part of a small cross-functional team that has ownership of a product, an important initiative or part of the business. A startup within a startup. Your teammates will be other software engineers, a product manager, UX designers and test engineers. You’ll need to have superb communication skills and thrive in a collaborative environment and be committed to the success of the team as a whole.
  • Learn the business and get close to users and customers. Working on consumer apps? - How often do you use the website or mobile app to shop RedMart? Working on the delivery platform? - When was the last time you joined a RedMart truck on a delivery run? In addition to customer and user interaction, you will need to build close relationships with the business stakeholders for your domain.
  • Design, implement and test robust technical solutions. Write clean code that’s testable, maintainable, solves the right problem and does it well. Code you can be proud of.
  • Have the opportunity to and be expected to innovate and demonstrate your creativity. Do you have ideas on how to improve the customer shopping experience or effectively use a new technology? Can you find a way to do what others thought impossible?
