Senior Full-Stack Software Engineer
Our mission at Farmstead is to make fresh, high-quality food accessible to everyone. We’re a new delivery-only grocer that’s re-inventing grocery from the ground up. We focus on mid-market customers (think Safeway, Kroger, etc) and bring them a best-in-class grocery product experience right to their doorsteps, even in areas traditionally underserved by supermarket chains. We accomplish this by writing consumer-facing and operations orchestration code that allows us to be highly efficient relative to legacy supermarkets.
You are a seasoned engineer with a reputation for being highly productive. You communicate early and often with your team to get full context, and then switch to solo mode to dig in and get features shipped. When you hit problems you reach out early, while keeping everyone involved in sync.
You’re used to the commercial realities of software development in a startup environment, you know that sometimes you need to leave a fire burning at a soft smolder. You’re able to develop clean, elegant solutions when needed, and fix a critical issue in legacy code without rewriting the whole codebase.
