Livingston James retained by Bella & Duke to appoint new Low-Code Engineer

Established in 2016, Bella & Duke is a private equity-backed pet wellness business, delivering high-quality, raw dog and cat food, and wellness products directly to customers. Mark Scott and Tony Ottley founded the business after their dogs died of terminal illnesses and they were shocked to discover ingredients in some mainstream dog foods can be harmful and started creating products for a raw diet after discovering the benefits of elongating and promoting healthier lives for pets. Based in Fife, the business now supplies healthy fresh dog and cat food with all-natural ingredients to more than 130,000 dogs and cats across the UK, serving more than 15,000,000 meals to over 28,000 happy customers.

The business has been on a strong and continued growth trajectory, growing from a startup to a £30 million business in 5 years. Bella & Duke operates on a data-driven, business-to-consumer model with 70% of new customers switching from non-raw food to raw food. Bella & Duke is PE backed by Mobeus Equity Partners and due to the continued success of the business, Bella & Duke has moved the manufacturing in-house and opened their factory and distribution centre in Fife.

Livingston James is delighted to be retained by Bella & Duke to appoint a Low-Code Engineer. As Bella & Duke continue to embrace new business opportunities, increase efficiency and improve the customer journey, there is a newly created opportunity for a Low-Code Engineer to join the thriving team in Rosyth.

We are looking for someone who is familiar with the disciplines and rigors of software development processes – scope, requirement, think, plan, review, document, implement, test and rollouts. However, instead of wanting to write PHP or JS all day, you will enjoy the speed and power of low-code and no-code systems and how that puts you at the heart of many of our teams’ day-to-day work.

This role requires a structured lateral thinker with a fund of good humour who can interact with non-technical colleagues to understand and translate their requirements and goals to be able to achieve them through our SAAS services. You will be logical, as many of the projects require a structured decision-tree / rules engine approach and you will be able to think through the advantages and disadvantages of any given option. That means you will bridge two very different mindsets simultaneously– lateral and logical.

If you are passionate about being part of Bella & Duke’s mission and enhancing their customers’ experience, please review the full position profile, below, or contact Rachel Sim via [email protected] to learn more.
