Hey! We’re Grubhub

More About the Role

Internal Tools/Care is a challenging place. We’ve got to balance external stakeholders in our diners with a myriad of internal ones with our care organization. As part of this organization, you’ll create responsive applications that millions of diners will see and use as they troubleshoot issues with their orders, building flows to automate and optimize wherever possible. You’ll rigorously A/B test those changes in a winner-takes-all environment. You’ll also develop powerful internal applications that run both stand-alone and on third-party systems, aligning around a totally different user base. You will have opportunities to drive our data-driven applications to find new ways to automate and optimize our internal workflows. As a senior engineer, you’ll be in the spotlight; developing new features and applications, pushing new technologies, mentoring junior engineers, and having fun!
