Lish is a fast-growing, Seattle-based, food-tech startup that curates high-quality catering for workplaces.

We provide top-notch service and unmatched menu variety, backed by technology that uniquely makes our scale and level of personalization possible. We’re a group of entrepreneurs, engineers, foodies, parents, coffee drinkers and creators with the mission of building workplace food experiences that employees love, made by local chefs & businesses who care.

We curate and serve an unbeatable collection of menus from top chefs around Seattle. Partners on Lish are independent chefs and restaurateurs who are passionate about their craft, each bringing their own cuisine and style. Established in 2014, Lish is the top tech-enabled workplace catering solution in Seattle and is used by many of the region’s best companies.

You will be responsible for Lish’s ordering, planning, menu automation, website, and logistics software.

About You
You are a versatile and experienced software engineer who enjoys a challenge, values flexibility, and doesn’t mind working independently. You enjoy working directly with internal stakeholders and non-technical team members in a small team to improve operations and customer experience.

You aren’t afraid to dust off code, identify a quick fix or a bold new direction, and get things done. You have excellent knowledge of Rails and a very good understanding of modern frontend technologies including Angular and React.

In this role, you will have the opportunity to fully oversee and execute your vision for technology at Lish, as the primary technical team member in a well-resourced and entrepreneurial team. You will work closely with the COO, logistics teams, and also have available mentorship from the founding team, who are multi-time startup founders and alums of both 500 Startups and Y Combinator.

About Our Technology
Our in-house technology is built entirely on open-source technologies, including Ruby on Rails, Spree Commerce, React, Angular, Postgres, and Redis.
It is deployed on Heroku and AWS, with Wordpress on WPEngine used for marketing tech.

• Proficiency in Ruby on Rails. Experience with Spree eCommerce or Solidus is a plus.
• Effective working knowledge of JS, HTML5 & CSS, including ES6 or Coffeescript.
• Knowledge of frontend JS frameworks (React, Angular, or Vue).
• Intermediate to advanced SQL skills (Postgres or similar).
• Experience with automated unit, functional, and/or UI testing tools.
• Experience with continuous integration and deployment on AWS, Heroku, or similar platforms.

Open vacation policy
Company stock incentive plan
Work with an amazing, talented, and dedicated team
