Job Description

Born from the belief that great things come to those who cook, Yummly provides limitless inspiration, with the tools to make it happen-from recipe discovery to prep to perfect results. Just as appliances removed the most cumbersome chores, the next tipping point in daily life is upon us in the food space. A system of personalized discovery that learns you better to serve you better, so the question "what's for dinner?" is answered before it's even asked.

Yummly has grown to over 26M registered users and our mobile apps are consistently one of the leading recipe apps on iPhone, iPad, Android, and Windows. Next on the menu? Building the connected kitchen of the future.

As a Software Engineer on the Data Team, you will:

* Work with our team of scientists and developers, building the most advanced ML-powered software in the kitchen
* Build and maintain backend systems for content understanding, search, personalization, computer vision, and tracking user behavior


* Demonstrated experience building and shipping production software
* Experience with Scala, Clojure, Python, or the ability to learn these languages quickly
* A collaborative attitude and strong desire to succeed as part of the team
* Self-motivation and a desire to learn
* 3-7 years of engineering experience
* A minimum of a bachelor's degree, preferably in computer science


* A strong interest in functional programming
* Experience with AWS or GCP
* Experience with ETL, data pipelines, SQL, Spark, Elastic Search
* Interest in or experience with ML, deep learning, NLP, search, computer vision, or recommendation systems

And a little more about us:

At Yummly, we are a team of talented and diverse technology professionals on a mission to rule the kitchen. We've seen great success using machine learning and artificial intelligence to make cooking fun, easy, and personalized. Our iOS and Android apps have 4.5+ star reviews, millions of downloads, and many awards (download and give it a try!).

We were recently acquired by Whirlpool, the world's largest home appliance maker. Together, we have appetizing aspirations to build the fully-connected kitchen of the future.

We're located in a beautiful, modern office in downtown Redwood City, a few minutes' walk from Caltrain. Please talk to us if you have a love for data, hard problems, and food!
