At Flyt, we believe that the way venues (serving food & drinks) acquire customers is perfectly suited for a world that no longer exists. Users have moved on to apps on their phones, home delivery services, and will soon tap into some real crazy possibilities with technology. The good folks at Venues know it's absolutely possible to get customers this way, but installing tech and using it takes months, if not years to get setup and running. And, that's not what they do. It's broken. We must fix it.
We are building - what we call - "The Hub", a universal integration platform for the hospitality industry, that seamlessly connects venues serving food and drinks to the 1000s of apps that customers love, all through One Universal Award Winning API. From that, we will build the second act of our vision - a marketplace - where services and venues get to work together, in minutes not months, so installing technology is made easy. So they both get more customers.
We work with leading hospitality operators and consumer platforms including Nando’s, Mitchells and Butlers, PizzaExpress, Just Eat, Uber Eats, Facebook and more to enable solutions in thousands of venues across the UK (and soon, the US).
How you can contribute
We want to hear from creative and capable engineers who love solving problems.
What will make you a great fit.
Our tech stack:
Our current PHP application powers both our API and POS integration layers and, at the moment, makes up the majority of our development effort. Recently we have introduced some Golang and NodeJS services as we break this monolithic API into slimmer microservices. We don't require that you're a PHP ninja, but you must be willing to pick up code written in that programming language (or at the very least, be willing to learn).
Other recent projects we've run have included: modelling POS communication using a stream of events using AWS Kinesis and Node JS Serverless Lambda Functions, a migration from AWS EC2 to Kubernetes and site reliability work to ensure we can scale our flagship products inline with our current growth.
