We're not your traditional tech company and we don't aim to be. Going against the grain is in our DNA. Building a revolutionary product begins with revolutionary thinking. That's why we value diversity of thought, background and experience. Together, we empower restaurants of all sizes to build great teams, increase revenue, improve operations, and delight their guests. We pair our deep understanding of the restaurant industry with powerful cloud based software and restaurant-grade hardware to deliver an intuitive all-in-one platform. Join us in our mission to empower the restaurant community to delight guests, do what they love, and thrive.

Do you like to solve complex problems at scale? We are looking for a backend focused Software Engineer to play a senior role on our Employee Cloud team. A restaurant's employees are a critical part of every restaurant, and we need your help to revolutionize our payroll and team management products that are used by thousands of restaurants and hundreds of thousands of employees every day.

Some projects we've been working on recently include:

  • Automating the entire restaurant tip management process from point of sale to payroll

  • Allowing restaurants to self onboard themselves in order to facilitate the rapid expansion of our customer base

  • Re-architecting our monolithic systems into microservices, utilizing AWS Serverless technologies

As a Senior Backend Engineer on the Employee Cloud team, you will be:

  • Improving/expanding our database architecture and application data workflows in order to support a rapidly growing customer base

  • Making hands-on contributions in all phases of the software lifecycle, including: product solutioning, technical design and architecture, implementation, testing, deploying, and maintaining.

  • Mentoring and developing team members

Do you have the right ingredients?

  • Strong experience with relational databases and database development

  • Proficient with non-relational databases and alternative data stores

  • Proficient in .NET, Javascript, or other object oriented languages

  • A quality driven approach to development with a desire to keep things simple

  • Enjoy collaborating with and mentoring colleagues

  • Passionate about technology and learning new things

  • Desire to make continuous improvements to teams and technology

  • Prior experience with distributed systems, microservices and capacity planning is a plus

Our Tech Stack:

We have a pretty varied tech stack! We are fully in AWS, and have traditionally been on the .NET stack, leveraging ASP.NET, C#, some VB.NET. We have since been re-architecting our systems to React based front ends while transitioning to serverless stacks with Lambda/API Gateway where systems are being written in a mix of Node.js and .NET Core. On the database side, we are using Aurora MySQL for relational data storage, and DynamoDB for non-relational data stores. We have invested heavily in the areas of build, test, and deploy automation, using GoCD for Continuous Delivery pipelines, and CloudFormation for Infrastructure as Code.
