Job Description

Afresh is on a mission to eliminate food waste and make fresh food accessible to all. Our first A.I.-powered solution optimizes ordering, forecasting, and store operations for fresh food departments in brick-and-mortar grocers. With our Fresh Operating System, regional and national grocery retailers have placed $1.6 billion in produce orders across the US and we've helped our partners prevent 34 million pounds of food from going to waste. Working at Afresh represents a one-of-a-kind opportunity to have massive social impact at scale by leveraging uncommonly impactful software – we hope you'll join us!

About the role

The Product Engineering team at Afresh is responsible for building out the suite of products that our customers use every day, whether it’s an individual produce manager looking to order their store’s groceries for the day, corporate supervisors looking to view individual store performance, or everything in between. Grocers rely on these solutions within Afresh’s Fresh Operating System to improve the accuracy and efficiency of their workflows, all contributing to our goal of reducing food waste. 

You will be playing a key role in building out these solutions for our customers. Our team and products are growing at a rapid pace, which means that there will be plenty of opportunities for ownership and making your impact felt. Some of your responsibilities will include: 

  • Leading complex cross-functional projects and shipping high-quality apps and services.
  • Designing and building our GraphQL APIs which serve our mobile and web apps.
  • Scaling our APIs, architecture, and infrastructure to serve thousands of grocery stores as we grow our customer base over the next year.
  • Collaborating closely with our product and design teams to build rich and engaging user experiences.
  • Building out our analytics and monitoring/observability to understand our system behavior and make informed decisions.
  • Helping lay the foundation of our scalable service-based infrastructure to support developer productivity and resiliency.
  • Work with other engineering teams to drive improvements in process, practice, and positive engineering culture so we all grow and mature together.

 

Skills and experience

  • BS in Computer Science or equivalent experience
  • 6+ years experience with full-stack and API development
  • Experience acting as a tech lead on complex cross-functional projects
  • Proven track record of shipping high-quality apps and services
  • Strong understanding of API development and good API design
  • Collaborative attitude while also being highly self-directed
  • System-level problem solving and excitement to tackle hard problems
