ezCater is the world’s largest online marketplace for catering – a $60+ billion market just in the U.S. Businesspeople use us to find and order great food for meetings and events; restaurants and caterers use us to grow their catering business. We’re backed by world-class investors including Insight Partners, Iconiq Capital, and others, and in early 2019 were valued at $1.25 billion. COVID slammed us, but we responded by finding new customer segments and seizing the rare opportunity COVID offered: when in life does a very successful operation get a do-over? Come help us power Food For Work even better than we did it the first time.

ezCater is expanding its Engineering team and we are looking for smart, friendly, and collaborative technologists to help us reach our goals while delivering real impact to the business. The marketplace teams work closely with our product team to get people in the door and successfully through the ordering process.  This role focuses on building the systems to make that happen quickly and efficiently.

ezCater values technology as a differentiator and a key component of our success. It powers everything we do. We push ourselves every day to better the codebase, improve performance, and deliver an amazing customer experience. Check out this CBS Boston article for a glimpse into our culture.

Do you enjoy working on systems that are directly used by customers?  The Marketplace Experience team is responsible for the core buying experience of ezCater.  You will work together on testing new and interesting functionality to make the customer's experience as seamless and efficient as possible.

What You'll do:
  • Develop with skills across the full stack - Ruby (Rails), Javascript with a dash of Typescript (React), CSS to build new features and services as we expand the foundation of our e-commerce systems
  • Measure and improve performance in every facet (we believe speed is a feature and core skill)
  • Build a solid foundation to support our catering product portfolio
  • Embrace exciting scale challenges.

What You Have:
  • 5+ years of professional web development experience, ideally using React on the front end and/or Ruby on Rails on the backend
  • Strong experience and working knowledge of CSS fundamentals
  • Solid SQL / relational database experience (Postgres is what we use, but not required)
  • A strong appetite for learning, experimentation, relentless curiosity and an ability to leverage what you learn to make our products better
  • A thirst for personal and professional growth
  • A friendly, flexible, and pragmatic disposition.

Starting Salary Range: $123,000 - $184,000


ezCater does not sponsor applicants for work visas or legal permanent residence.

What you’ll get from us:
You’ll get a terrifically compelling opportunity, in an environment of radical transparency, open access to all the data, and collaborative colleagues at every level of our organization. You’ll also get sane working hours and great flexibility around work/life balance. 

Have people in your life – of any age – who always, often, or sometimes need your help? We make room for that. Have a bad thing or a good thing happen to you? We make room for that, too.

Oh, and you’ll get all this: Market salary, stock options that you’ll help make worth a lot, the usual holidays, all-you-can-eat vacation, 401K with ezCater match, health/dental/FSA, long-term disability insurance, remote-hybrid work from our awesome Boston or Denver offices OR your home OR a mixture of both home and office (you choose!), a tremendous amount of responsibility and autonomy, wicked awesome co-workers, cupcakes (and many more goodies) once we get back to our offices, and knowing that you helped get this rocket ship to the moon.
