Job Description

At Afresh, our commitment to our communities extends beyond products and technologies: we want to create a workplace and culture that values diversity—where anyone can make an impact by embracing and celebrating their fully authentic selves.

As a Software Engineer at Afresh, you’ll work on an array of increasingly difficult projects to become an independent, high-impact software engineer. Depending upon the team, the work can focus anywhere on improving our modeling capabilities for ordering fresh produce, creating customer-centric and engaging user experiences, helping scale our mobile app development to support thousands of stores and dozens of partners, or work on tooling to process tens of billions of historical data points collected from tens of thousands of retail stores and beyond.

Your work will help drive the future of food by helping retailers order the right amount at the right time. At Afresh, we're invested in seeing you grow and develop, make an impact with your role, and help us on our mission to eliminate waste and increase access to fresh food.

What you will do:

  • Work on cross-functional projects, directly collaborating with other engineers, as well as product managers and designers
  • Give and receive meaningful feedback on code reviews and technical designs
  • Build the skills to own a project from beginning to end, learning project management and technical leadership skills
  • Ensure that the systems your team operates continue running well and can scale to meet the needs of our users

What skills or experience do you need?

The following represent attributes our ideal candidate possesses. We encourage all highly-qualified candidates to apply, even if they do not fulfill all the listed criteria.

  • Experience either in internships or working collaboratively on multi-person coding projects (in a university or professional setting)
  • Ability and willingness to learn unfamiliar systems and form an understanding of those systems, through independent research and working with a mentor and subject matter experts
  • One or more areas of specialized knowledge in balance with general skills and knowledge, such as knowing front end or mobile technologies, while having an understanding of backend services
  • Ability to start work June 2022

Founded in 2017, Afresh is the first A.I.-powered fresh food optimization platform for grocery chains. We have partnered with several large grocers representing hundreds of stores and >$10B in revenue. Our cutting-edge AI research has been published in top journals (e.g., ICML). We’re backed by some of the top investors in grocery and tech including Innovation Endeavors (former Google CEO Eric Schmidt’s firm), Baseline Ventures (first money in Stitch Fix, SoFi, Heroku, Instagram), Food Retail Ventures, Maersk Growth, and Impact Engine.

We are building a vibrant, diverse, and inclusive team that embodies our company’s values: proactivity, kindness, candor, and humility. We aspire to continually grow as individuals and as an organization to live these values and realize our mission. We earnestly believe that Afresh represents a one-of-a-kind opportunity to have massive social impact at scale by employing novel technology—and to have a ton of fun along the way.
