About the role

Forage builds payment technology to increase online access to government benefits.

42M Americans rely on their EBT cards (formerly known as ”food stamps”) to buy groceries, and our technology helps them purchase online groceries. Specifically, we sell software solutions to online grocery retailers that help them accept EBT cards at checkout. Our payments API and team of EBT experts provide the easiest path for them to access 42 million shoppers and $120B of food purchases.

  • Write high quality code, value software testing, and uphold best practices in engineering
  • Exhibit a strong understanding of CS fundamentals from your Bachelor's in CS, engineering, related discipline, or equivalent industry experience
  • Work effectively in a remote setting and are able to overlap at least 4 hours per work day at 9am to 5pm PST

Our offer

  • Meaningful work that makes a positive impact on our society.

  • A fun and caring environment that prioritizes transparency, growth, and ownership.
  • A talented, diverse, high-achieving, and humble team with diverse backgrounds and viewpoints.

Our values

Mission-first.

We optimize for the collective good and strive to improve the lives of as many people as possible. We build with dignity and consider the impact of our actions and decisions. We believe deeply in our mission and have a strong sense of duty to succeed on behalf of our customers.

Act like an owner.

We are all owners of Forage. We are biased towards action and accountability. We seek out problems and we solve them. We finish what we start and no task is beneath us. We take incremental steps to make Forage better tomorrow than it is today.

We forage together.

We value collaboration, diversity of background and thought, humility, and ideas over hierarchy. We celebrate others, admit our mistakes, assume positive intent, and invest in our people so that we can be our true selves and do our best work. “If you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far go together” - African Proverb.

And we’re just getting started.

We are dedicated to building for the long-term. We fundamentally believe that our work has only just begun and that our most important work has yet to be done.

Why you should join Forage
