Who we are:
Grabango is the leading provider of checkout-free shopper technology for existing stores. Founded by Will Glaser (former founder & CTO of Pandora Media), the Grabango team has developed the only enterprise class solution for large store chains in the market today.
Grabango has raised over $75 million in funding since 2017, with $39 million in Series B announced in June 2021. The round was led by Commerce Ventures with participation from Founders Fund, Unilever Ventures, Honeywell Ventures, Rich Products Ventures, and WIND Ventures. Grabango has signed five retail partners, each over $1 billion in revenue, including a global top-10 grocer and a Fortune-25 multinational. Several multi-store deployments are underway. The company has filed 40 patents, and the earliest ones that predate most prior art in the category have already been awarded.
We’re a growing group of curious, self-directed people working towards a common goal. We delight in taking risks and testing hypotheses in a collaborative environment. Our ability to celebrate both our successes and failures as milestones of progress opens the door to tremendous breakthroughs.
As a Senior Front End Engineer you’ll get to build features and improvements for the mobile application that supports our end users. You’ll have the opportunity to code solutions of moderate complexity on your own, and when more complex projects arise we expect you to collaborate with more senior engineers to learn how to approach more complex problems. Grabango believes strongly in a growth mindset; we're here to learn and we're looking for other folks who have an appetite to grow their skills on the job. Join us in creating the opportunity to eliminate lines and save people time!
