Byte Kitchen is backed by leading investors including Y-Combinator, Crosslink Capital, WndrCo, Soma Capital and strategic angels. We are a small and rapidly expanding team, and are seeking entrepreneurial individuals to join us.

We are obsessed with what makes a great user experience - and we’re developing the tools that make it possible top to bottom in the antiquated, multi - Trillion dollar food service industry.

Your role:

We are seeking a full stack developer to build products that streamline both our backend operations and frontend user experience. You will be tasked with leading the development of a vertically integrated tech stack for our multi-concept kitchens, building some nodes from scratch while integrating existing off-the-shelf solutions where appropriate.

As an early member of the team you will have significant autonomy, and be involved in both the day-to-day and strategic decisions of Byte Kitchen. You will steer the direction of our technology products, and join an engineering culture that champions empathy for the end user. If you are passionate about building technology to power the future of the restaurant industry, this is the right role for you.

Responsibilities:

Build and guide our growing team and evolving product as an early technology team member

Develop an in-depth understanding of our business model, space, and end user

Assist in developing our technology roadmap for both the near and long term

Work closely with the founding team on product direction decisions and strategy

Approach tired problems with impassioned energy and creative solutions

Work with the founders to attract and employ likewise impassioned engineers set on bringing BK's vision to life.

Ideal experience:

4+ years experience as a full stack engineer/ solutions architect

Proficiency in front end languages (HTML, CSS, JavaScript) and Javascript Frameworks (React)

Proficiency in server-side languages (NodeJS ideal)

Experience with Cloud (AWS, Firestore ideal)

Comfort with Database technology (MySQL, Postgres)

Experience building products from scratch

Excellent problem solving and communication skills

Bonus:

Startup experience / experience in food tech or logistics companies

You are:

Scrappy: you know when to prioritize speed over scalability and are comfortable making those decisions

Comfortable with ambiguity: some things you work on may never become full products. But one might change the course of this industry

Delighted to take ownership: you alone decide the ceiling of the scope of your responsibilities

We are:

Customer obsessed: we serve two customers – our restaurant partners and the end consumers. Every decision we take is focused on improving experience for both

Hungry: to build a solution which is a true partnership for restaurants; to create the kitchen of the future; to bring the best food to our customers every day

Collaborative: we have no time for office politics, everyone takes out the trash, all opinions are not only welcome but highly encouraged

Compensation:

You will receive competitive compensation with meaningful equity for a seed stage startup, amazing food and a collaborative, respectful and inclusive work environment. We don’t pretend to have all the answers. But we do have an obsessive focus to figure them out and we want every single person’s input on the team to do so.

At Byte Kitchen, we firmly believe there is only one way to build a sustainable business model in the food delivery industry – be a true partner to restaurants. If you want to be part of a dynamic team that is transforming the way restaurants expand, please reach out to us.
