What Is Zoomer?

Zoomer is building a new take on food delivery - a platform to handle an extraordinarily high volume of concurrent deliveries from restaurants that already deliver (i.e. pizza, wings, sandwiches, etc.). We’re bringing much needed change to local high-volume delivery restaurants that are still doing delivery the way they’ve always done it. Our restaurants and their customers love the service, and our order volume is surging. You’ll make a real impact working to build and scale Zoomer as we continue to grow to new restaurants and territories.

We have amazing investors behind us, including Y Combinator (S14), First Round Capital, SV Angel, CrunchFund, Eric Ries, Gabriel Weinberg, the founder of DuckDuckGo and others. This is your opportunity to get in on the ground-floor. You’ll have a ton of impact – lots of freedom to evolve our platform, stack, and apps. We follow strong dev practices, put an emphasis on testing, and deploy rapidly.


  • Build a feature-rich API to enable our mobile applications, complex real-time interfaces for our team, and tools to enable our growth - Rails is the backbone for all of this
  • Develop software for Zoomer’s restaurants, drivers, and internal teams
  • Play a key role in defining and evolving our architecture
  • Scale our high-volume transactional systems as our volume continues to surge


  • Expert knowledge of Ruby on Rails
  • Excellent understanding of Rails best practices, and the ability to apply them through constructive code reviews
  • Strong experience with TDD and related testing competencies
  • Experience scaling and optimizing Rails applications
  • Experience with related technologies (JavaScript, PostgreSQL, Redis, Git, AWS, Passenger, Sidekiq)
  • Strong agile development experience using short sprints and deploying to production rapidly
  • Excellent track record of delivering and maintaining a highly transactional, feature-rich web product
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skillset
  • Knowledge of Linux, MacOS X, or other *nix environments


  • Senior-level developer experience with high achievement and success across multiple projects
  • BS in computer science or related discipline, or comparable experience


  • Get in on the ground floor of an experienced startup engineering team, with direct influence over the product and technology
  • Extremely flexible work schedule
  • Unlimited vacation time
  • Build or buy your ideal workstation

Product and engineering for Zoomer is headquartered in San Francisco but we have talented developers working remotely to help tackle very unique and extremely complex problems. We place a big emphasis on using the best tools and processes so that the entire company can collaborate from wherever we are - Zoomer has teams in each geography that we’re delivering in.
