Imperfect Foods

About Imperfect

Imperfect Foods was founded in 2015 with a mission to reduce food waste and build a better food system for everyone. We offer imperfect (yet delicious) produce, affordable pantry items, and quality meat and dairy. We deliver them conveniently to our customers’ doorsteps and pride ourselves on offering up to a 30% discount compared to grocery store prices. Our customers can get the healthy, seasonal produce they want alongside the grocery staples they rely on, without having to compromise their budget or values. We’re proving that doing the right thing for the planet doesn’t have to cost more, and that shopping for quality ingredients can support the people and resources that it takes to grow our favorite foods.

We're headquartered in San Francisco with operations all over the country. Check our website to see if there is an Imperfect near you!

We're looking for folks who are positive, motivated, and ready to change the world. If that sounds like you, drop us a line!

About the Role: 

The software engineering team builds the ecommerce platform and internal tooling that support our mission to eliminate food waste and build a kinder food system. Engineers don’t just build widgets -- we participate in the full lifecycle of a feature, from conception to release. We have heaps of interesting problems to solve around customer experience, logistics, supply chain and scale. We’re looking for an experienced software engineer to help us take the work out of grocery shopping by building delightfully functional web and mobile experiences.

Our technology stack currently consists of React on the frontend and a mix of Node and F# in a microservices backend. We’re on a TypeScript migration journey for all JavaScript code. Data persistence is handled by PostgreSQL and Snowflake, messages by RabbitMQ. We believe in building expertise in a relatively small set of modern but mature tools. We’re a remote-first team with members throughout the US.
