  • About The Opportunity

    Here at Grubhub we’ve been dedicated to giving diners the most convenient way to order food from their favorite restaurants (whether that’s a late night Chalupa from Taco Bell or a salad for lunch from a local restaurant the day after they enjoyed said late night Chalupa).

    While we are food-obsessed, we are also customer-obsessed. We look to constantly innovate our technology so our diners’ food experience is memorable, restaurant owners get more business and individuals across the country looking for work can deliver the food from the restaurant to the diner flawlessly. We take great pride in knowing that we are a part of 20+ million diners food ordering experience and we are partnered with 125,000 restaurants in 2,400 US cities across our suite of apps (Grubhub, LevelUp, Seamless, Tapingo, AllMenus and MenuPages).

    This team is responsible for the most critical parts of the diner food ordering experience including the REST APIs used by our web and native applications, the RPC endpoints used by the rest of the platform, and all of the back end functionality for managing orders. They focus on building a frictionless, high-throughput experience across all major client platforms and are responsible for powering the user experience all the way from choosing a restaurant through menu selections, the check-out flow, and diner notifications as well as users editing orders and modification of orders by customer service. They leverage cutting edge technologies to deliver resiliency, high availability, visibility, and feature delivery.
