About Us

Our mission is simple: to make the world better friends.

Our friends matter more than we think; research has shown that our social health is just as important as our physical and mental health. That’s why we’re building Picnic, a feel-good social app designed for those who want to spend less time endlessly scrolling and more time having fun with their favourite people.

We believe that re-calibrating social media away from the passive consumption of strangers’ content towards conversations with friends represents the most exciting opportunity in tech today. Our ambition is not simply to build the most compelling social app on the market. It’s to deliver on the original promise of social media, and build a product that makes the world better friends.

Our interview process in detail

The role

We are looking for a software engineer who loves creating products that people want to use. You understand that apps—and code—are for people, not for computers, and always strive to make our app and codebase more understandable and easy to use.

Our team is currently very small, so you will be working directly alongside the CTO. Our product is still rapidly evolving, you will contribute directly to the direction of our product and architecture, making our most ambitious product ideas a reality.

The Senior in our job title does not refer to how many years of experience you have (or your degree!), but to your general approach to development: you are able to think about the system and architecture as a whole, know enough about all aspects of the stack to effectively diagnose issues, and are able to pass your knowledge onto other members of the team.
