Mystery is a curated night out that you don’t have to plan yourself. Think Stitch Fix for restaurants, bars, and activities. For an added twist, we arrange rideshare and keep the destinations a surprise until you get there.

Mystery helps its users get out of their comfort zones by connecting them with new and exciting experiences in their city. Mystery isn't just for couples, either—we plan corporate/team building events, activities for friend groups, solo adventures—you name it.

Engineering at Mystery
Engineering team and processes

We're currently very small/early-stage, so you'd be instrumental in establishing the structure and processes for our engineering team along with our other engineers and our CTO.

Technical Challenges

We're building software to match people with relevant experiences in their city. We're also building tools to automate the operations process of guiding customers through their Mystery (automatically ordering/managing rides through Lyft/Uber, sending details like reservation information just-in-time as they're arriving to their stop in order to create a seamless experience, etc.)

Projects you might work on
  • Integrate new products/offerings into our existing mobile app.

  • Unlock new markets by building scrapers to automatically find out which experiences are the hidden gems in any given city.

  • Continue to increase our internal automation to minimize ops head count.
