What do we do?

Zesty empowers companies to be healthier and more productive by serving healthy, delicious meals from the best local restaurants. We believe that caring for the health of its employees is a top priority for all good companies and we want to make this as easy as possible! We’re supported in this goal by some of Silicon Valley's top investors including Index Ventures, Founders Fund, Forerunner Ventures, SV Angel and Y Combinator.

Technical challenges

Every day, Zesty has to figure out exactly the right set of meals to order for each company, balancing variety, cost, health, dietary restrictions, and automatically learning from individual employee feedback. Then, we need to get thousands of meals from a distributed network of restaurants to hundreds of startups, all before lunch-time, using crowd-sourced transportation. This is a massive logistics and constraint satisfaction problem and we’re building deep technology that will let us do it better than anyone.

Why join us?

1) Proven business model with strong unit economics (unlike the majority of food tech companies!) and a clear path to profitability by the end of the year
2) Poised to expand into new product lines and geographies over the next year
3) Dynamic team who live our value of “health over all”
