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.
What You'll Do
  • Solid knowledge of Ruby on Rails and PostgreSQL (or equivalent)
  • Ability to build front-end, consumer-facing features
  • A product-first approach to building software. You care about the real world functionality of your programming.
  • You love the fast-paced nature of a startup and want to join a company that is at the intersection of food, technology and commerce.
  • 6+ years professional software development experience.
  • Great coding skills and Computer Science fundamentals. You ship quality code quickly.
  • A talent for problem solving.
  • Deep experience with test-driven development.
  • Proactiveness, good communication and fast learning.

  • Solid compensation package + equity
