What our devs say...

Henry, Head of Engineering - “It’s an exciting time to join Bark in many ways but especially from a tech point of view, because we’re at the beginning of the biggest architectural transition in the company's history. As we transition from a startup to a much larger company, we need to upgrade our stack from a few monolith systems, to much more scalable, maintainable, decoupled services.”

George, Senior Engineer - “Working so closely with the product and design teams gives me an opportunity to get involved in the product from the earliest stage. Each week we build a new experiment which is a true collaboration of the ideas from everyone in the group. Due to the scale of Bark as a business, it’s also hugely rewarding to see that the work we produce can make a massive impact, by generating millions of pounds in annualised revenue.”

Tom, Head of Product - I’m really enjoying Bark - there’s a great level of camaraderie across all our teams, and we’ve maintained that whilst splitting development into squads. Our ambitions this year are huge, but we have a great team and I’m so excited to see what we can achieve together this year.”
