●  Collaborate and learn with other team members via pair programming, mentoring, code reviews, and technical talks.

●  Learn about and champion best practices in code, architecture & processes.

🐶 A bit about us. 


At Butternut, we put the food back into dog food. We believe dogs deserve to eat the healthiest, most natural and tastiest food with none of the nasties. That’s why we make freshly prepared dog food. Cooked like you would at home. Delivered in perfect portions.


Our goal is to help dogs live healthier, happier and longer lives whilst leaving humans smiling after every interaction. We’ve come a long way since our co-founders (Kev & Dave) hand-delivered the first Butternut Box, we now feed a lot of dogs across the UK - but we want to feed dogs everywhere. And to do this, we need a team of brilliant people who share that ambition to come and work with us.

  • 24 days holiday (plus 8 bank holidays) 
  • £500 personal learning & development budget 
  • Co-working office space at Huckletree West
