ezCater is the world’s largest online marketplace for catering – a $60+ billion market just in the U.S. Businesspeople use us to find and order great food for meetings and events; restaurants and caterers use us to grow their catering business. We’re backed by Insight Partners, Iconiq Capital, Wellington, Lightspeed, and GIC, and in early 2019 were valued at $1.25 billion. COVID slammed us, but we responded by finding new customer segments and seizing the rare opportunity COVID offered: when in life does a very successful operation get a do-over? Come help us power Food For Work even better than we did it the first time.

Are you excited about coding solutions, building features, and driving efficiency while working with an exceptional team? At ezCater we rely on our dynamic and skilled team of engineers to provide solutions that unlock potential and drive innovation in our rapidly evolving environment. 

As we expand our team we’re seeking engineers that thrive in a forward-thinking organization and are passionate about building products that drive measurable impact, while committing quality code and deconstructing complexities. We are looking for smart, thoughtful, collaborative technologists to help us reach our goals while delivering value and impact across our business. 

ezCater values technology as a differentiator and a key component of our success. It powers everything we do. We push ourselves every day to improve the codebase, improve performance, and deliver an amazing customer experience. Our team values innovation, pragmatism, and transparency. Check out the ezCater Engineering Blog for a glimpse into our culture and team.

You Will:

  • Join a team that is focused on delighting our customers, executing the organization's mission, and propelling our business forward. Build products utilizing Ruby on Rails, React and GraphQL
  • Contribute to performance improvements and efficiencies - we believe speed is a feature and core skill.
  • Respond to customer and business requests by evolving our existing products and identifying areas that would benefit from new initiatives.
  • Decompose problems, design technical solutions and work with other talented engineers to implement, test, and evaluate your team’s work.
  • Communicate with product managers, stakeholders and engineering teams to ensure mission clarity, and provide technical direction.
  • Improve our user experience by increasing the capability and efficiency of our systems and products; based on research, data and metrics.
  • Influence the team’s outcomes and direction by sharing ideas for improving the product, technology and/or process.
  • Operate with scale and speed embracing new challenges and contributing to the development lifecycle. 
  • Have fun building meaningful software with awesome people.

You Have:

  • Several years of professional web development experience, ideally using Ruby on Rails (or a similar MVC framework) or React (or a similar JavaScript tooling ecosystem).
  • Strong experience and working knowledge of CSS fundamentals.
  • Working knowledge of SQL and relational databases. Postgres? Even better.
  • Flexible growth mindset, you’re willing to do what it takes to adapt, and you’re excited to learn a heck of a lot along the way.
  • An appetite for learning, experimentation, relentless curiosity and an ability to leverage what you learn to make our products better.
  • A thirst for personal and professional growth.
  • A flexible, and pragmatic disposition.

An Insider's view of ezCater

How would you describe the company’s work-life balance?

ezCater gives its employees total control over their work-life balance, whether that means taking time for the doctor or going on a vacation. Everyone here understands that life gets in the way of work at times, and as long as you get your job done well and support your fellow co-workers, you get to control your own schedule.

Claire

Business Operations Strategist

How do you collaborate with other teams in the company?

I love working with other teams in the company! Every person I have encountered is insanely helpful and willing to teach me about their job. I'm always pleasantly surprised at how collaborative this company is.

Alyssa

Senior Menu Specialist

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

I've been able to grow a team and department from scratch, and had the opportunity to make decisions on my own. Overall, I've grown faster here than anywhere else I've worked.

Jules

Manager, ezDispatch

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

For me, fostering creativity comes down to ownership & a healthy comfort with failure. I try to make sure the team is pointed at big, meaty problems and then I largely get out of the way.

Dillon

Sr. Product Manager

What are some social events your company does?

Our weekly breakfasts and lunches provide a social avenue throughout the day, while our end of week ezHour gives the entire company a chance to wind down and interact. Outside of that, we're often seeing fun events pop up like our Holiday Party, fun team off-sites, and volunteer events that bring people together from across the company.

David

Sales Manager
