.NET Software Engineering Manager at Grubhub
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 21.2 million diners food ordering experience and we are partnered with 140,000 restaurants in 2,700 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!
About the Team
The .NET Engineering team currently includes 10+ contributors, all of whom take the lead on at least one (or more) projects. We also work cross-functionally with members from other teams in the organization, including Design, Mobile, Platform, and White Label. The .NET Engineering team embraces a flat hierarchy, and our goal is to team up the most abled and most interested engineers to solve problems. Small pods form to tackle high-priority projects, all of which benefit from thorough testing and code review.
Curious about current projects? Here are some of the challenges that drive development for our team:
- How can we build an integration for both In-Store Ordering and Online Ordering that’s so easy to use, restaurant customers, cashiers, and operators forget it’s even there?
- How can we improve the security of our systems without placing extra burdens on end users?
- When will our system reach its breaking point? What must be done now to push back that date?
- How do we keep our development cycles fast while improving reliability?
- Seconds matter. Whether you're placing your order online, or ordering in the store, a faster experience can mean a better experience for customers and cashiers alike.
Bonus: When we cut a new release of an integration, we get to walk into a Pret-A-Manager, Caffe Nero, or any other restaurant we work with™ and place an order for a coffee handled by code we’ve written.
