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 teammates 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. The product and engineering team's goal is to build and launch a new Zagat product in late 2020. This backend software engineer will help us get there.
Ideal candidates are comfortable touching various parts of a distributed system, as well as having intuition and strong opinions on how to design and improve relationships between systems and technology.
In this role you will help to decide and drive decisions on things like authentication, database design, and the API. We’re looking for someone that has faced these problems before and can contribute insight and experience to the team.
