About the role

ABOUT BENTOCART

Bentocart creates time-saving meal solutions for WFH workers. Customers receive chilled, ready-to-eat meals made by local restaurants every week.

During the COVID-19 lockdown, Bentocart’s novel model enabled new revenue streams for local restaurants and helped them stay in business. Our efficient logistics and fair business practice create sustainable incomes for restaurants and all essential workers we partner with.

Under the hood, Bentocart is building the infrastructure to reshape the food ecosystem: cold storage, warehouse automation, delivery fleet, and the best restaurants and chefs in each city who will be cooking for millions of families. We will forever change how every household eats.

Bentocart was part of Y Combinator's Winter 2019 batch. We’ve received 1M+ in funding and will be expanding nationally in 2021.

WHAT YOU WILL DO

  • You'll build new product features from start to finish: through design, implementation, launch and polish. You’ll help families plan meals and order food easily.
  • You'll build improvements to performance, reliability, and product polish — for example, reducing the request latency.
  • You'll build internal tools to automate and simplify our operation processes - such as a dashboard to help warehouse workers pick & pack orders.

WE ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEONE WHO

  • Enjoys being a generalist working on both the frontend, backend, and anything it takes to solve problems and delight users.
  • Enjoys working remotely and being a part of our remote-first engineering team
  • Cares about the business implications of anything you build. You're not just going after cool stuff — you understand the balance between craft, speed, and the bottom line.
  • Can readily learn most technologies as you go. To you, technologies are about tools and tradeoffs, not an ideology.
  • Has knowledge & skills on systems, services, databases and writes high quality code. We work mostly in Django, Python, Javascript and Postgres.
  • Has spent meaningful time as a senior engineer or tech lead — or even better, you've managed a team before.
  • 2+ years professional experience with one of the server side MVC frameworks.
  • Comfortable working in an all-English environment. You can have productive conversations with other engineers in English. All specs/docs are in English as well.

  • Opportunity to grow fast with the company
  • Competitive compensation (The salary range on workatstartup is in USD/year)
  • Remote-first work environment
