Vinterior London, United Kingdom June 06

Who are we?

Vinterior is an online marketplace reshaping the interiors and furniture industry. We have an ambitious goal to build the Worlds go to platform for extraordinary furniture and decor. Our mission is to rid the world of bland, mass produced, flat-pack furniture.

Having grown our revenue by 100x in less than 2 years, our track record speaks for itself. As a result, were a well funded startup and backed by top-tier investors.

Youll be working with:

The Product Team; currently a small but hungry team of 4. Were a well balanced group of junior and senior engineers. Were proud of our pair programming culture and enjoy the benefits of this in terms of both personal growth and shipping high quality code.

How do we work?

As a team we run fortnightly sprints with daily standups. This is a new habit for the team and were enjoying the process of improving ourselves as a product while we improve the actual product.

Were ship-a-holics too and love to see our work go live. We follow the Boulders and Pebbles methodology. We think its a great approach to maintaining momentum and also preventing burnout.

Problems were solving

With big ambitions come big problems. Here are some of the biggest challenges we face

  • Scaling our product pipeline

We list 500 new products a day and aim to grow this number to over 1 million. We will need admin tools that can quickly and accurately list products using the expanse of historical data weve collected (machine learning). Customer facing, how do we ensure our merchandising is relevant and personal to the user and their current needs?

  • Building a highly connected network of furniture delivery experts

We move delicate, heavy and non-standardized products around the World. Our customers demand timely communication about the process and returns should be equally as painless. How do we make the experience of getting a sofa delivered as seamless as purchasing a book on Amazon Prime?

  • Help our sellers to grow

Our sellers range from single person businesses to bigger and better resourced organisations. Our aim is to get products in front of the right audience at the right time whilst maximising the business opportunity. Would a dynamic bidding platform solve this problem?

  • Digitalizing the furniture buying experience

We want to recreate the real-life experience of buying furniture. We want to do this by giving consumers the opportunity to touch the products theyre interested in, visualise the item in their own homes (augmented reality) and to ask questions and interact with the sellers (chatbots).

What does our Stack look like?

Our current setup is a Rails application hosted on Heroku. Weve rolled our own e-commerce system and our seller tools are within that same system too. Our frontend uses React to power aspects of the customer experience. For that we use modern JS tooling such as: Webpack and Yarn.


Benefits


Other things you should know about us

  • Were customer obsessed. Were constantly asking ourselves if what were working on is solving a genuine problem. To build empathy, the Product team recently started their own Cinema Club dedicated to watching Hotjar videos (and eating popcorn).
  • Feedback is our middle name. We have company retros every two weeks. This session is for giving and receiving respectful and constructive feedback. This goes for everyone, no one is exempt. Well entice you in with cheese and biscuits though.
  • Were big believers in empowerment. Nobody wants to be the bottleneck in a fast-growing startup. We think that by providing tools and solutions to our teams internally, they can achieve much more with less resources.
  • Personal development is important to us too. Our engineers spend time every Friday afternoon learning about whatever topic interests them around their role.
