    What our Team says...

    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.”
