Engineering Manager

at Rooser in Edinburgh for salary not provided

🔭 Our vision Rooser is on a mission to reduce the amount of waste from seafood that is caught and harvested from our oceans. Founded by industry experts, we come from a world that still uses the fax machine, along with WhatsApp, email and phone calls to trade over 130 commodity seafood products on a daily basis and in real-time.

Our solution is simple: become the largest facilitator in the seafood industry, connecting both buyers and sellers through our sales and stock management tools and online marketplace. Achieving this will mean seafood commodity information will be transparently communicated for the first time ever, and with seafood flowing more efficiently through the supply chain, there will be increased shelf life and therefore less waste.

With backing from Index Ventures (Etsy, Farfetch and Just Eat), Google Ventures (Uber, Stripe, StockX) and Point Nine Capital (Zendesk, DeliveryHero, Revolut), we’re not alone in believing in this vision.

🏅 What we value Rooser was founded on the idea that we should leave the planet in a better way than it was given to us. We want to work with people who have the same values we do.

You’re the Skipper: We all own a part of Rooser and act like it.

Be a Salmon: Salmon are mavericks. We’re ready to swim against the current, focus on the goal & get it done.

Humble & respectful: We facilitate seafood trading, not disrupt.
