The Company

At Fy! our purpose is to empower creativity. People come to Fy! to discover unique and wonderful things and to realise their creative vision for their home. Our mission is to make the world of design discoverable, affordable and instantly accessible.

For designers, artists and brands, Fy! is a way to share their creative vision and convert it into income. Fy! lets them build a brand, a business, and a life doing what they love. So far Fy! ships over 150k products from 2,000 creators to over 30 countries - with free shipping and returns! But we're just getting started.

One of Europe's fastest growing consumer brands, we are an ambitious team of creators, designers, analysts and coders split between offices in London, Berlin and Zoom. We're backed by top European & US VCs and angels who've previously worked in or invested in businesses such as Deliveroo, Thread, Instacart, Superawesome and ASOS to name a few.

Our backend services are developed in Clojure with an emphasis on simplicity, maintainability and performance. We're working on interesting and challenging problems such as real-time recommendation, event-driven systems and creating data-driven shopping experiences.

You will also share responsibility for deploying and maintaining services on AWS, monitoring and improving the performance of live systems.
