Software Engineer

The software engineering team builds the ecommerce platform and internal tooling that support our mission to eliminate food waste and build a kinder food system. Engineers don’t just build widgets -- we participate in the full lifecycle of a feature, from conception to release. We have heaps of interesting problems to solve around customer experience, logistics, supply chain and scale.

Our technology stack currently consists of React on the frontend and a mix of Node and F# in a microservices backend. We’re on a TypeScript migration journey for all JavaScript code. Data persistence is handled by PostgreSQL and Snowflake, messages by RabbitMQ. We believe in building expertise in a relatively small set of modern but mature tools.
