Senior Software Engineer - Back End

Senior Software Engineer - Back End

There's hungry, and there's happy. EatStreet was born to be the world's smartest shortcut between the two. We don't make the hoagies, hot wings, or egg rolls, because cooking is best left to cooks. What EatStreet does is make ordering-out as second nature as humanly possible. We combat complicated to hook you up with the food delivery and takeout options you crave, whenever you need it most.

EatStreet is looking for a highly-motivated back end engineer to join our software engineering team. The ideal candidate has a strong foundation in web technologies and is passionate about creating full-stack solutions. You will be required to effectively participate in our sprint planning and development cycles, to solicit technical requirements, investigate the feasibility, and see projects through to completion in a timely manner.

  • Architect, design, and develop the API powering our ordering platform
  • Contribute to the long-term architecture vision of the back end tech stack
  • Mentor other engineers to ensure high quality
  • Analyze and identify performance and scalability issues
