    Who We Are

    Abel & Cole is an award-winning online food retailer based in south London. Famous for our seasonal organic fruit & veg boxes, we deliver a wide range of excellent organic food to over 50,000 people’s homes every week, across London and the South, the Midlands and the Northwest. No air freight, no silly packaging, no nasty chemicals – just great food produced by people who really love what they do.

    Our achievements would not have been possible without fantastic business systems. Developed and maintained by our in house team, our bespoke website and back-end applications handle around 340,000 unique online visitors a month, and over 80% of our customers sign up and manage their accounts regularly online. Our systems, based on SQL Server and Microsoft Technologies, manage everything that we need to run the business, and allow us to offer customers a unique service including flexible repeat orders and individually tailored boxes of fresh fruit and veg.

    How We Interview & Hire

    Our interview process begins with an introductory call to help you better understand the opportunity, give us a glimpse into your interests and motivations, and help you decide if Abel and Cole is the right place for you.

    From there, we will conduct a technical screen and if successful, invite you in for a face to face interview with our Development Manager and one of our Lead Engineers. The final stage is a group exercise with the team that you will be working with. We will always try to keep the process transparent and work around your busy schedule where possible.
