At Shelf Engine, we’re harnessing the power of AI to provide real-time, intelligent forecasting for food retailers like grocery stores, food service, and cafes across the United States. We’re able to drastically reduce the amount of shrink (food waste) which in turn drives profit for retailers, lowers costs for consumers, and reduces the ecological impact of waste. We’re using technology to solve a globally-relevant problem that both creates a positive environmental impact and an exciting (and potentially massive) commercial opportunity.
We are hiring a Sr. Software Engineer who will play an integral part in designing a system that allows us to scale up our customer base while maintaining an ability to quickly engineer and deploy new features. You will develop solutions across broad areas, from mobile and desktop UX for our end users, to automated integration with other customer data systems, to our core storage systems and business logic. Our engineering team is small (you’ll be #4), so we’ll need you to flex your skill-set, working across the stack (TypeScript/C#).
• Be one of the first to join our rapidly growing, well-funded Seattle-based startup
• Help us reduce the cost and ecological impact of food waste
• Make a big contribution across our entire product in this small, passionate team
As a Software Engineer at Shelf Engine, you will:
- Write scalable/high-performance code on both the frontend and backend, understanding complex technical areas along the way
- Build efficient and reusable systems that drive complex web and mobile applications
- Create software features that are robust, reliable, and user friendly for both internal teams and our customer base
- Run the full software development lifecycle – problem definition, design, development, testing, demoing, and supporting production use of the features you own
- Be able to balance immediate business objectives against long-term architectural vision
And, our ideal Software Engineer candidate will have:
- 3+ years of production-level engineering under their belt
- Experience developing and interfacing with REST APIs
- Experience building both web applications and mobile applications
- Familiarity with the Microsoft stack: TypeScript/C#, Azure, MSSQL, etc.
- Knowledge of the following frameworks: Angular, Iconic (front end) and ASP.NET, EntityFramework (back end)
- Strong analytical and quantitative problem-solving ability
- Bonus Points: Experience in distributed systems, payments systems (e.g. Stripe, Dwolla, etc), logistics, warehousing, or the food (grocery, etc.) industry
