What do we do?

E la Carte develops tablets for restaurants, which allow customers to go through the menu, place orders, and pay right from their seat.

Technical challenges

1) The diversity of platforms is very different from most startups
2) You get to work on a real product that you can touch and visit at a restaurant
3) You get to have a lot of influence on the future of the product itself, we expect engineers to be product owners
4) We cross train across teams intensively

Why join us?

There are ten million restaurant tables in the United States, and there are tablets on only about two-hundred thousand of them.

Mission / Positive Impact on the World:

Bring technology to the restaurant industry.

Other Reason:

Free lunches, ideal work station, competitive table tennis, strong commuter benefits.
