App Engine Developer With an Interest for Mobile Apps Needed

Wish to be part of an ambitious team which is changing the way people order and pay in the hospitality sector? - Then you might be the person we are looking for.

Zerved is looking for a highly talented programmer who can further develop our backend and maybe to a lesser degree work on our Android and iPhone apps with the rest of our skillful team.

The Zerved solution enables busy merchants such as Parken, Me Love Sushi (London) and Koncerthuset to receive orders and payment from their guests' smartphones. For the Zerved user this means less queueing, no need to bring credit card and no need to download several different ordering apps.

UK, Denmark and South Africa are currently Zerved's main markets, but this is just the beginning.

We are looking for someone who not necessarily is an expert in all the platforms we use, but is dedicated and passionate about learning new technologies.

  • System Design
    The Zerved solution is a highly complex system, which you will have to know every part of and be able to know how to change in order to optimize current features or develop new ones.

What we are looking for

A team player but you also have to have the ability to work on your own finding new solutions to problems.
