An online market that delivers groceries to homes throughout the Bay Area.
About Good Eggs
At Good Eggs, we’re changing the world by changing the way we eat. We're revolutionizing how local food is sourced, bought and enjoyed—inspiring our community to cook and eat with the seasons. We connect people who love food directly with people who make it by delivering the most incredible food, straight to Bay Area homes, 7 days a week on the same day it’s ordered.
The people who join us must share our commitment to making real, positive change. Because the better we work, the better the world we all live in. Here you’ll have the opportunity to build relationships—not only with each other—but with farmers, local food producers, and with our devoted community of customers. You’ll reduce our customers’ carbon footprints and improve the entire food ecosystem while you're at it. You’ll collaborate with and learn from your teammates and eat family-style lunches with them every day.
What we’re building
We’re a high-tech company working to revolutionize a low-tech industry.
Our Shopping Engineering team is building a platform that powers a beautiful online shopping experience across both web and iOS. We weave together inputs from multiple parts of the business - from merchandising rules to availability limitations - in order to present a seamless user experience that belies the complex underlying system.
Going forward we see unique opportunities to truly push the boundaries on how people feed their families every day. Unlike other ecommerce domains regularity with small variations (eg. milk & bread every week) is the norm in our customer behavior. This is a pattern we can leverage both in our subscriptions offering as well as in discovery and recommendations throughout the experience. Speaking of personalization, imagine an experience where vegan shoppers never see the meat section, or your favorite chocolate bar always floats to the top of the section, or when we recommend sauce and toppings the minute you add pizza dough to your basket. With a well known and specific domain like food there’s an opportunity to combine machine learning with human curation to create a truly magical experience. Excited? So are we!
