Senior Mobile Engineer (iOS)

At Sprig, we're bringing delight back to your dinners. We feature a daily rotating menu of three seasonal, sustainable, healthy, and delicious meals designed and crafted by executive chef Nate Keller. Each option is priced at $12. With a few taps, our Sprig servers will brave rain and fog to whisk your order over faster than you can say phone to fork.

 

To that end, we’re looking for a senior engineer to help us build an amazing experience for Sprig customers. You’ll be the first engineering hire outside of the co-founders, so this is a great opportunity to help define our engineering culture and product focus. We're backed by Battery Ventures, MHS Capital and angel investors.

 

Right away you’ll be working on:
  • Our customer facing iPhone app (aka our "front of the house")
  • Mobile apps for our servers, helping them efficiently whisk meals from kitchen to table
  • Our delivery dispatch algorithm, the key to getting food in people's hands as fast as possible
In the future you might be working on:
  • Making our app ordering experience even better
  • Simulating delivery routing optimizations so we can tune our dispatch
  • Scaling the backend to launch new cities
Our stack includes:
  • iOS, Rails, Postgres, RabbitMQ, Heroku, AWS
You should have:
  • Significant iOS experience, having shipped at least one app
  • Some Rails or other backend experience
  • Previous startup experience
  • Passion for food! You’re joining our engineering team, but we are first and foremost a food company
  • A sense of humor, and/or a mild love of accidental food startup puns (too many cooks in the kitchen, let the idea simmer, put it on the back burner...list goes on)
