Hey, my name is Kyle and I am a Platform Engineer on the Platform Team here at Gousto. The Platform Team is responsible for building and maintaining tooling that enables our engineering squads to easily build, test and deploy their applications to AWS.
I started here in March 2019, just over a year and a half ago at the time of writing this.
After studying Computer Science at the University of Greenwich back in 2013, I was lucky enough to join NBCUniversal where I spent the following five years working in their International Digital Team helping build digital products for…
Hi, I’m Sian. I’m a product designer, currently working in the Menu tribe but I’ll be moving to the Growth tribe shortly to start leading the design for the Beetroots Acquisition squad. We’ll mainly be focussing on Conversion Rate Optimisation which basically means improving the user sign-up journey to encourage more prospects to sign up.
I started in May 2020 during lockdown so my entire Gousto experience so far has been virtual. The onboarding was much better than I expected. I had a package arrive in an Addison Lee with all of my equipment. I liked that the onboarding is…
Hello my name is Joe and I’m a software engineer in the Carrots team. Our main mission is to enable customers to order a Gousto box when and wherever they like.
I’ve been working at Gousto for eight months now. Wow. It has gone so fast.
I started out as a broadcast engineering apprentice straight out of sixth form with the BBC. I got to travel around the country a fair amount, that was great and even worked on the 2015 general election. I did that for three years and then my brother suggested I should give this programming thing…
I’m Kira, and I joined Gousto as a Junior Software Engineer at the end of November 2019. It’s been an exciting and challenging journey so far, not only because Gousto is a great company to work for, but also because this is my very first role in Software Engineering… yes, another story of a complete career change (hopefully, eventually it will be a successful one :) )
Well.. I wish I could say that I studied Computer Science & always knew what I wanted to do… but I didn’t. I initially took a social sciences route, worked in some customer-focused…
Oh hi there! I’m Razvan and I’m a haricot. Yep, you read that right. Actually, I am part of a squad called Hacking Haricots. I am the Lead Software Engineer of this squad, which to be fair, is a very easy job as my colleagues are very talented engineers. I mostly just have to nod and approve their ideas and then go to meetings and validate them. Another part of my job is shaping the direction of our frontend ecosystem alongside my fellow frontenders. …
Last night we hosted an event in partnership with #YouEqualTech, who work to promote equality in the Tech sector. This event was a perfect combination of equality, sustainability and tech — three areas we are passionate about in Gousto. We celebrated the 2 year birthday of #YouEqualTech, which was an absolute pleasure to host.
Entitled “People, Profit, Planet: The triple bottom line for a sustainable future” the three fascinating talks were from:

In my previous tutorial “Serverless Framework: Deploy an HTTP endpoint using NodeJS, Lambda on AWS” we learnt how to create an AWS Lambda HTTP endpoint, implemented in NodeJS, with Express using the Serverless framework.
Today we are going to learn how to:

I’m Conrad, and I’m a back end engineer from Oxfordshire. I work in the Carrots team who are in charge of a lot of behind the scenes processes that occur after you order your box — everything from working with payment providers to flexible courier management and optimising box packaging.
I’ve been at Gousto since January 2018 when we were selling 26,000 boxes a week.
I studied Computing at Imperial College in London and while I was there lived round the corner from our current office, it’s fun to be back in Shepherd’s Bush! I then moved on to a…
My name is James and I am the Lead Platform Engineer at Gousto. My responsibilities include working as part of my team to deliver our team goals, planning the platform roadmap, managing other teams requests and supporting fellow engineers in performing their daily tasks.
The Platform teams goal is to maximize our squads ability to deliver and manage high quality software. We are responsible for managing the pipelines to deploy software into our many environments and providing monitoring and alerting tooling.
It is also important to note we are not an operations team, here at Gousto we have the philosophy…
My name is David. I’m a Front End Software Engineer and I’m from Spain.
I have been 1 year in Gousto, we were serving around… 13k boxes? It’s a bit difficult to remember as we were growing so fast when I joined.
I studied Computer Science in Spain. After working one year there, I decided I needed to do something about my poor English, so where better than London? (if it weren’t so full of Spanish speakers! haha)
I went to the Silicon Milkroundabout, a job fair where Gousto is an habitual attendee, I spoke with some of its employee…
