Role Description

WHAT WE DO At Shef, we are building a homemade food marketplace. We believe in providing the shefs in our community (refugees, immigrants, stay-at-home parents, retirees and out-of-work restaurant chefs) the opportunity to make a meaningful income by doing what they love! We also believe that every person should have access to a wholesome, home-cooked meal at an affordable price. Building a community devoted to economic empowerment and cultural inclusivity -- that's why we started Shef.

We are committed to reimagining home cooking regulations around the country to help put people back to work following the COVID-19 pandemic and have raised nearly $30M from investors including Andreessen Horowitz, Y Combinator, Craft Ventures, and M13, as well as founders and executives from Instacart, TaskRabbit, StubHub, AngelList, Lyft, Airbnb, and Yelp. We have a ton of exciting work ahead of us and are excited to have you join us!

ROLE As a software engineer, at Shef you will be responsible for building delightful experiences for consumers and chefs across the country. You will optimize the shopping experience for our consumers, and build out micro-entrepreneurship tools for our shefs to run their own businesses. If we succeed, you will have fundamentally changed how people purchase food and the variety of healthy, affordable, and authentic food that they have access to. This role reports directly to the Head of Engineering and can be fully remote.

At Shef, we are building a platform that celebrates difference and cultural inclusivity by providing equitable opportunities for economic empowerment and by reimagining food making and sharing in our 21st century world. Our employee, shef, and customer communities represent a wide, beautiful cross-section of individuals from diverse cultures, ethnicities, races, and walks of life.

Shef is an equal opportunity employer. We strive to build a team that reflects the communities we serve, and a workplace that nurtures and empowers unique identities and experiences. We are committed to advancing equity in a tech industry that has often fallen short. We strongly encourage applications from BIPOC (Black; Indigenous; People of Color), women, LGBTQ+, and other individuals who are underrepresented in the industry, across color, religion, race, ethnic and national origin, physical ability, gender and sexual identity.

About Shef

Shef is a marketplace connecting talented home-cooks with consumers, unlocking a $800B industry. We provide the community with access to healthy, homemade meals at a fraction of the price charged by restaurant delivery, while creating economic opportunities for women and PoC. We're a YC company with a sizable backing ($9m) from top VCs seeing huge growth and substantial $Xm+ revenue.

Company Culture

We are scrappy, light hearted, humble, and FUN. We work hard, but we also enjoy a culture of sharing and lack of territorialism. Our best ideas come from all parts of the company because of strong communication and willingness to listen. We believe being vulnerable is being strong, and we pride ourselves in fostering an environment where all backgrounds and experiences are welcome.
