Company info and history:

FarmShoppr is looking to make its first engineering hires and we want to build a team with smart, creative people that are looking to build innovative solutions and not afraid to make big impacts.

We are an online marketplace and delivery network for farmers markets. It’s similar to an InstaCart for farmers markets. We make the farmers market available to shop online. Vendors who have little no to tech savviness can sell online and customers can order online and get farm fresh goods delivered to them.

About the interview process

Please email me at if you are interested with “Elixir Job” in the subject title.

We’ll setup a time to chat so you can get a sense of who we are and what you’re looking for to see if it would be a good match and go from there.


If it’s not a secret, why the experience with PHP is a plus?

Our current stack uses PHP so it would be nice to have someone that could easily help with it, but not necessary as we will be moving away from it.
