About Goldbelly

Goldbely is an online marketplace that connects curious eaters with America's best gourmet food purveyors, an alternative to the food conglomerates and big box retailers that control most of the food world today.

Job Description

Goldbelly empowers the top food makers around the country to sell their specialty dishes (think deep dish pizza from Chicago, iconic Texas BBQ, etc) to food-lovers nationwide. Consumers know we are the marketplace of the best food you can get in the US. Merchants can use our platform to manage sales, fulfillment, reporting and easily create a new revenue stream. We never have to touch the inventory, which allows us to scale rapidly without inventory risk. It's a win-win. We're solving an incredibly complex problem around perishable shipping from n endpoints.

Our team is growing fast since our early beginnings in Y Combinator. It includes previously successful entrepreneurs, top class engineers, and people that have been responsible for large exits at the likes of Delivery, Shopify & Napster. We've been able to do a lot with a lean team of 53 and we expect everyone that comes on board to do the same. We believe in product ownership.


        Develop scalable software systems that power Goldbelly's consumer experience
        Improve system design and architecture to ensure high performance and stability of the services
        Work with multiple cross-functional teams in a rapid product development environment


        Bachelor degree in computer science or related discipline with 5+ years working experience in software/web development
        Experience building backend services for client-facing tools
        Proficiency with Ruby on Rails
        Solid understanding of data structures and algorithms
        Good team communication and collaboration skills


        Ruby on Rails
        React (bonus points)
        GraphQL (bonus points)
        Typescript (bonus points)
        Kafka or other streaming platforms (bonus points)
        AWS (bonus points)
