Engineering at Bean Box, Inc.

Engineering team and processes

Seven years and hundreds of thousands of customers in, and we're still a one-engineer shop. There's no established religion around how we engineer our systems, except to say that if we build it, we own it, and if it goes down, we're on it. We do have amazing co-workers, on both the consumer side and the manufacturing/fulfillment sides, who are incredibly passionate about what we build, which makes the work that much more well-defined and fulfilling.

Technical Challenges

Algorithmic curation of coffee based on palate, preference, history, margin, behavior, and other factors. Maximizing customer revenue through dynamic packaging and offers. Developing ever-tighter customer engagement loops based on behavioral data. Building tools and process that guide the entire manufacturing process, from ingredient selection to receiving, materials flow, inventory, build recipes, etc. through to fulfillment to the customer, for upwards of 100 tons of fresh coffee annually. Just-in-time inventory management, manufacturing, and fulfillment.

Projects you might work on
  • Consumer-facing next-generation checkout.

  • Facility-wide inventory, process, and state tracking using QR codes.

  • Developing the next version of our subscription management engine.

  • Building our a third-party marketplace so roasters nationwide can leverage our reach and platform.

  • Develop a system for behavioral and event-driven SMS campaigns.

  • Help us install and tweak fully automated packaging equipment (I know, atoms not electrons, but super fun anyway).
