At The Infatuation, we're building the world’s greatest restaurant discovery platform. We reach our audience across web, mobile, social, and text applications. We’re always looking for people to join our team who will make us smarter, faster, and more valuable to our users.
We recently acquired Zagat and are excited about the opportunity to revamp the user generated platform, combined with The Infatuation, to create the most influential, useful, and authentic restaurant discovery platform in the world. This role will be imperative to ship that product.
A Platform Engineer at The Infatuation is a full stack developer that powers the systems behind our products. The platforms they build are the life blood of The Infatuation and keep our writers going at full steam, while getting our users the intel they need. They have a strong handle on their toolset and an instinct to ship. This role will be a core component of it out of the gate. We’re looking for engineers experience in Go to join our team and own components of a horizontal platform that will serve various client applications.
