We are one of the few companies doing just that. We’re growing our engineering team and capabilities and are working to create best in class solutions that support our business first, refusing to accept the legacy tech that other restaurants merely work around. There has never been a better time to join the company as an engineer and as we build the next generation of food system that will change the world.”
