About the role

About Farmstead

Our mission at Farmstead is to make fresh, high-quality food accessible to everyone. We’re a new delivery-only grocer that’s re-inventing grocery from the ground up. We focus on mid-market customers (think Safeway, Kroger, etc) and offer them lower prices than stores and free delivery as part of a best-in-class grocery product experience, even in areas traditionally underserved by supermarket chains. We accomplish this by writing consumer-facing and operations orchestration code that allows us to be highly efficient relative to legacy supermarkets.

We’re headquartered in the Bay Area with a fully-remote product and engineering team.

Why Farmstead?

  • You want to join an early-stage startup where you can have a large impact on architecture, process and culture.
  • You want to work on a suite of products targeting a challenging and rewarding opportunity.
  • You want a supportive team that has high ambition and low ego.

The Role

We're looking for an Android developer to build intuitive and efficient applications for our customers and internal users. You'll have a chance to work on our shopping app as well as our internal apps covering the entire flow from receiving bulk produce at our dock doors to dropping off customer deliveries at their doorsteps. It's a dynamic and challenging environment where attention to detail and empathy are as important as technical chops.

  • Collaborate with product and design to create best-in-class user experiences on Android devices
  • Advocate for quality and architecture principles in our code base
  • Have a bias to action and experimentation
  • Desire to build multi-modular Kotlin apps using Coroutines + LiveData/Kotlin Flows


  • 3+ years experience building production applications, ideally in the areas of e-commerce, fulfillment or logistics systems using Kotlin
  • Familiar with all aspects of mobile development from concept development to production monitoring and support
  • Experience building multi-modular apps with Jetpack components is desirable


We're a fast-growing startup that values personal growth and family time. We offer:

  • Competitive salary
  • Healthcare, dental, vision benefits 85% covered for the employee, plus 50% covered for all dependents
  • Unlimited PTO
  • Up to 12 weeks maternity/paternity leave

If you tick all the boxes then please write to us.

Why you should join Farmstead
