Our Technology & Attitude

Runn is built using a modern development stack: React, Node, GraphQL, Postgres tested with Cypress and Vitest, and deployed via Github Actions.

Our developers are involved in the entire product life cycle. We aren't just full stack, we are product stack. That means you'll be involved from the idea stage, into design, then development, testing, deployment and support. Your engineers are passionate about what you are building, and the technology you can employ to build it.

Who are we looking for?

Runn is currently hiring across all role levels. We are looking for people with some experience, but if this is your first job, then open source contributions or an app running in production will suffice. Conversely, if you’re a senior engineer, we’re looking for the ability to execute effectively and elevate the people around you.

We recognise that soft skills are just as important as intricate technical knowledge and we try to build our team with a mix of both. We want people who are willing to empathise with our customers and give them the best experience. If you feel limited at your current job, we want to talk to you.

Because we are a remote company, communication is a vital skill. We prefer people that over-communicate and are willing to respond quickly. So much of what we do is over Slack and we want to see your personality come through when you write.

If you're someone who excels at producing high-quality work and is dedicated to delivering positive outcomes for customers, you'll fit right in with our team. We believe in setting high standards for ourselves and we're always looking for ways to improve and grow.
