Data Engineer

| Greater Boston Area

About The Opportunity

Here at Grubhub we’ve been dedicated to giving diners the most convenient way to order food from their favorite restaurants (whether that’s a late night Chalupa from Taco Bell or a salad for lunch from a local restaurant the day after they enjoyed said late night Chalupa).

While we are food-obsessed, we are also customer-obsessed. We look to constantly innovate our technology so our diners’ food experience is memorable, restaurant owners get more business and individuals across the country looking for work can deliver the food from the restaurant to the diner flawlessly. We take great pride in knowing that we are a part of 20+ million diners food ordering experience and we are partnered with 125,000 restaurants in 2,400 US cities across our suite of apps (Grubhub, LevelUp, Seamless, Tapingo, AllMenus and MenuPages).

Want to be a part of the biggest movement in the US that is moving eating forward? If so, we want to talk to you - and hear what’s your favorite restaurant for food delivery!

  • Work with other Grubhub teams to assist with data-related technical issues and support their data infrastructure needs.
  • Directly manage our team of data analysts who provide the reporting included in our core produ ct as well as custom reporting for clients.

You Should Have

  • Advanced working SQL knowledge and experience working with relational databases, query authoring (SQL) as well as working familiarity with a variety of databases.

  • Strong analytic skills related to working with unstructured datasets.
  • Build processes supporting data transformation, data structures, metadata, dependency and workload management.

And Of Course, Perks!

  • Unlimited PTO. It’s true, no strings attached and all the time you need to recharge. 
  • Better Benefits. Get quality insurance, flex-spending accounts, retirement options and commuter perks.  
  • Free Food. Kitchens are stocked and free Grubhub each week.
  • Stock Up. All of our employees are owners, in fact, they’re granted Restricted Stock Units, which means we’re all in it to win it. 
  • Casual Culture. Catch rays on the rooftop or get comfy on a couch and get to know your coworkers — because work, should be a place you want to be.

An Insider's view of Grubhub

What’s the vibe like in the office?

It's fun coming to work because there's a constant buzz in the office. Everyone's excited to be here, working on big things, but also having fun collaborating and just being around each other. The marketing team is really tight knit- even though we're busy heading up our own projects, we make sure to take time to catch up on what we're up to.

How do your team's ideas influence the company's direction?

Our inside sales team lives on the company's front lines, playing an integral part in our growth strategy. Our sales team has direct access to our CSO, CEO and the entire marketing team. Their feedback, ideas, and suggestions -- even down to who they choose to call day in and day out ultimately define who our next client becomes.
