About Picnic

Picnic is an ad network that brings the high-quality ad experiences of social media to the open web (i.e. news or content publishers). Our user-friendly ad formats drive attention and ROI for advertisers whilst transforming the way publishers monetise a specific kind of website (Google AMP pages). You can see more on our website or gallery site

We're a fast-growing, profitable start up with ambitions to scale our product around the world, improving advertiser performance and publisher revenue whilst ensuring we don't compromise on the user's experience.


The Role

We're looking for a junior software developer to join our engineering team, building features for our "Studio" platform as well as delivering mobile adverts built in Picnic's proprietary formats for client projects. This is a full stack, product oriented engineering role, perfect for an ambitious and smart candidate at the beginning of their software development career.

At the beginning, you'll learn all aspects of Picnic's tech stack but over time you'll be encouraged to specialise on products and technologies that excite you and deliver most value to the business. We're expecting the candidate to learn on the job, push code from day one and work collaboratively with everyone in the business, from the CEO to commercial teams and fellow engineers.

  • Working with JS framework (React, Angular, Vue)
  • HTML, CSS and good understanding of vanilla JS
  • Animation with Greensock

  • NoSQL databases

Cultural fit is as important as technical expertise so you should be interested in:
