Sprig - San Francisco, CA

Senior Mobile Engineer

At Sprig, we're bringing delight back to your dinners. We feature a daily rotating menu of three seasonal, sustainable, healthy, and delicious meals designed and crafted by executive chef Nate Keller. With a few taps, our Sprig servers will brave rain and fog to whisk your order over faster than you can say dinner on demand.

To that end, we’re looking for a senior engineer to help us build an amazing experience for Sprig customers. You’ll be the first engineering hire outside of the co-founders, so this is a great opportunity to help define our engineering culture and product focus. We're well-funded and just launched in SF.

Right away you’ll be working on:

- Our customer-facing mobile apps (aka our "front of the house")

- Mobile apps for our servers, helping them efficiently whisk meals from kitchen to table

- Our delivery dispatch algorithm, the key to getting food in people's hands as fast as possible

In the future you might be working on:

- Bringing our app ordering experience to as many customers as possible

- Simulating delivery routing optimizations so we can tune our dispatch

- Scaling the backend to launch new cities

Our stack includes:

- iOS, Rails, Postgres, RabbitMQ, Heroku, AWS

You should have:

- Significant iOS or Android experience, having shipped at least one app

- Some Rails or other backend experience

- Previous startup experience

- Passion for food! You’re joining our engineering team, but we are first and foremost a food company

- A sense of humor, and/or a mild love of accidental food startup puns (too many cooks in the kitchen, let the idea simmer, put it on the back burner...list goes on)
