About the role

Who we are

Snackpass is building social meets mobile ordering for restaurants. Skip the line and get rewards with friends. Our users save time, save money and connect with friends on our social commerce layer that includes social rewards, group buying, and social menu. Meanwhile, we help restaurants recruit new customers, engage existing ones, and streamline operations to ultimately grow their business. Snackpass is transforming the restaurant ordering experience into a rich, personalized and social experience. Snackpass is one the largest social commerce platforms in the US, one of the fastest growing marketplaces, and a top 100 YC company. We’re backed by Andreessen Horowitz, Y Combinator, First Round Capital, and Craft Ventures. We are growing 3x YoY and are a team of 80 people. And we’re just getting started. The environment at Snackpass is high impact, fast paced, and empowering for everyone. We are growing fast and looking for hungry and humble builders to join us in any of our hubs (NYC, SF, LA) or remotely.

The Opportunity

While we’ve seen the rise of online delivery apps, delivery makes up less than 10% of the restaurant market. The rest — takeout and dine-in — remains offline, anonymous, and on the verge of disruption. There is a $600B opportunity to make offline takeout and dine-in transactions digital, social, and mobile, and we’re leading this movement. We started on college campuses and are now bringing Snackpass to every college campus and city in the country.

What we're looking for 👀

  • 3+ years of experience with full stack payment processors like Stripe, Adyen, Square, etc.
  • Experience with banking, financial and tax systems.
  • Experience with modern JavaScript libraries and tooling such as React
  • Experience with architectural patterns of complex web applications (e.g., well-designed APIs)
  • Experience with SQL or NoSQL databases
  • Experience with functional programming languages is a plus

Projects you'll be working on 👷

  • Take ownership of the lifeblood of Snackpass’ finances: the data flow from time of order to our internal ledger and external accounting services!
  • Apply Clean Architecture principles to ensure correct, consistent and performant financial data for all internal and external clients. Cleanly integrate an external tax-calculation engine into our stack to handle the complexity inherent in a multi- state Marketplace Facilitator business.
  • Close the loop by integrating Snackpass’ internal accounting ledger with an external service (e.g. Quickbooks or NetSuite)
  • Apply rigorous, comprehensive testing and reconciliation mechanisms to these projects to ensure we ship correct software with confidence!

Benefits 🎁

  • Health, dental, and vision insurance
  • Unlimited paid time off and 12 paid holidays
  • Remote friendly
  • Home office stipend
  • Professional development stipend
  • Flexible hours
  • Ample Snackpass swag
  • 12 weeks paid parental leave
  • Employee referral bonus program

We do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, veteran status, or disability status. In fact, we are confident that the most inclusive and diverse teams accomplish the most extraordinary results.

Why you should join Snackpass

At Snackpass we are building a social layer for commerce, where you can buy anything with friends. At $60M/year in sales volume, we are the largest social commerce platform in the US.

We are starting with mobile ordering for restaurants, where there is a 600B opportunity to take offline takeout and dine-in transactions online.

While we’ve seen the rise of online delivery apps, delivery only makes up 8% of the restaurant market. The rest — takeout and dine-in — remains offline, anonymous, and on the verge of disruption.

Snackpass is leading the way in the cashierless transformation. Registers are slow, inefficient, and create long lines. We believe that over the next five years, registers will be replaced by self-service kiosk and mobile order, and restaurant workers will be freed up to create food and service rather than punch in orders.

Unlike incumbent POS companies, we go beyond the transaction layer and create a rich relationship between the restaurant and its followers. Restaurants are brands with local followings, not commodities. We give merchants tools to grow and engage their customer base and convert offline, anonymous in-store traffic into digital followers.

For users, Snackpass is a way to save time, save money and connect with friends. We are building a social network unlike any other that exists today in the west. Social buying creates new ways to connect with friends that go beyond sharing text and photos. On Snackpass, you can share points, see other people’s orders, and team up to unlock value you couldn’t get anywhere else.

We have taken college campuses by storm, where we consistently reach over 80% penetration and industry-high levels of engagement and retention. We are now expanding into cities with the goal of being in every restaurant in the country.
