Founded in 2015, Imperfect Foods, a Certified B CorporationTM (B CorpTM), is the leading online grocer at the forefront of eliminating food waste and building a better food system. We work directly with farmers and producers to rescue, redistribute, and develop goods across multiple grocery categories, and to date have rescued more than 150 million pounds of food from lesser outcomes. Our customers enjoy a customizable service that is more affordable and more environmentally friendly than the average trip to the grocery store. Mission:  At Imperfect Foods, we're on a mission to eliminate food waste and build a better food system for everyone. Net Zero Carbon Commitment:  Imperfect Foods pledged to become a net-zero carbon operation by 2030. To do that, we’re working to optimize every part of our business operations and supply chain to mitigate waste, and are switching to 100% renewable energy in our fulfillment centers and vehicle fleet by 2027.

Responses will in no way affect your candidacy for the position you apply for. Information collected will be kept secure and confidential and will be used solely to evaluate our DEI efforts. We thank you in advance for helping us to become a better company for people of all backgrounds.

We’re looking for a DevOps engineer to support the overall engineering team as they help us take the work out of grocery shopping by building delightfully functional web and mobile experiences.

Data persistence is handled by PostgreSQL and Snowflake, and messages by RabbitMQ. Recently, our customer-facing application has been released as iOS and Android apps. We believe in building expertise in a relatively small set of modern but mature tools. We’re a remote-first team with members throughout the US. If owning the full product engineering lifecycle, sustainability, preventing food waste, and working daily with a bunch of pleasant people excites you, come join us! This role will report to the DevOps Manager and can be remotely located within US time zones. You should have the technical skills to work directly with AWS and test suites, and the communication skills to educate others and help to institute a culture of quality.
