Recruiter ·eatsa ·

At eatsa, we are working to revolutionize restaurants through innovative technology and design. We believe that everyone deserves access to better food, better dining experiences and to have a little more magic in their day.

We are focused on an industry that is ripe for change – the $900 Billion restaurant industry. Our unique, world-class team combines software and hardware engineers, designers and restaurant operations experts to push the boundaries on re-engineering every aspect of the business. We've created a one of a kind product, customer experience, and back-of-house operation platform to empower and delight customers and operators alike.

Customers, restaurant partners, investors, and media have responded with overwhelming enthusiasm. As we enter an aggressive growth phase, we are looking for motivated, talented folks to join us in making this critical change!

The Role: eatsa’s engineering team is growing and we need a Senior DevOps engineer to support our two types of infrastructure: cloud and store. We use AWS in the cloud, and we want someone to come in and fine tune our existing system, help make deployment of code effortless, and generally make sure things run smoothly and efficiently. In our restaurants, we run a fair amount of hardware, and we are hoping to scale back on sending engineers into our stores to troubleshoot and instead seek to empower store employees to fix and resolve issues. By empowering our store employees we are able to scale troubleshooting efforts across thousands or hundreds of thousands of stores.
