The Role

Grove’s Operations Technology team is responsible for the platform that fulfills every Grove customer orders, and enables our team to provide world class service to all of our members. In 2021, we’re launching two new teams to help us build the next generation warehouse and customer service platforms.

We’re looking for technologists to help grow two of our newest teams: one that works on our warehouse management platform and the second focused on our customer service and relationship management tools. Our plan is to rebuild both platforms from the ground up in the next year so we can ship products faster, more accurately, and provide even better customer service to all of our members.

To support both teams, we are looking for an engineer to architect our new data platform to provide that data to help guide the major decisions about technology and processes that will support our growth. You’ll get an opportunity to work closely with our team members across the US to identify and garner the data that will influence efficiency improvements that have real world ramifications (warehouse automation and robotics, fulfillment center layout, packing algorithms, etc.)

You’ll plan for the future and ensure our data platform remains scalable and fast.

You’ll identify data sources and work with and build APIs from/for other microservices and outside services to build a holistic business perspective using data.

You’ll help us tackle some of the hardest problems in computer science, like the traveling salesman problem (pick path optimization), packing optimization (knapsack problems), and more.
