Overview

Imperfect Foods was founded in 2015 with a mission to reduce food waste and build a better food system for everyone. We offer imperfect (yet delicious) produce, affordable pantry items, and quality meat and dairy. We deliver them conveniently to our customers’ doorsteps and pride ourselves on offering up to a 30% discount compared to grocery store prices. Our customers can get the healthy, seasonal produce they want alongside the grocery staples they rely on, without having to compromise their budget or values. We’re proving that doing the right thing for the planet doesn’t have to cost more, and that shopping for quality ingredients can support the people and resources that it takes to grow our favorite foods.
We’re headquartered in San Francisco with operations all over the country. Check our website to see if there is an Imperfect near you! We’re looking for folks who are positive, motivated, and ready to change the world. If that sounds like you, drop us a line!
About the role:
At Imperfect our software engineering team builds the e-commerce platform and internal tooling that makes this all possible. Engineers don’t just build widgets — we participate in the full lifecycle of a feature, from conception to release. We’re a remote-first team with members throughout the US.
We have heaps of interesting problems to solve around customer experience, logistics, supply chain and scale. We’re looking for an experienced full stack engineer to take the work out of grocery delivery for our internal stakeholders. Operations Technology is responsible for the part of grocery fulfillment that the customer doesn’t directly see, such as delivery route optimization, ensuring that their order arrives without a hitch. This role will report to the Director of Engineering for Operations Technology.
