Zoomer (YC S14) - REMOTE

Zoomer is building a new take on food delivery - a platform to handle an extraordinarily high volume of concurrent deliveries from restaurants that already deliver (i.e. pizza, wings, sandwiches, etc.). We’re bringing much needed change to local high-volume delivery restaurants that are still doing delivery the way they’ve always done it. It's a very interesting technology and logistics problem, quickly routing orders to optimal drivers in near-real-time. Our CEO has a substantial amount of experience in the space from his first startup.

In addition to Y Combinator, we are backed by some of the premier early stage venture capital funds, including First Round Capital and SV Angel, and awesome angel investors like Eric Ries & Gabriel Weinberg, the founder of DuckDuckGo. This is your opportunity to get in on the ground-floor. You would be engineer number 3 or 4. You’ll have a ton of impact – lots of freedom to help us evolve our platform, stack, and apps. We have strong dev practices, put an emphasis on testing, and deploy rapidly.

Our stack: We have an AI backend service that handles order routing, multiple mobile applications – for our drivers and restaurants, and several Ruby on Rails applications for customer-facing/internal services. We’re using Angular.js and CoffeeScript on the frontend.

The roles we’re hiring for:

  * Artificial Intelligence engineer
  * Data Science – roles open for data analysis and data infrastructure
  * Ruby on Rails engineers
  * Frontend engineer (Angular.js)
  * Mobile (iOS and Android) engineers
  * Infrastructure/DevOps engineer
