And a little more about us:

At Yummly, we are a team of talented and diverse engineers, scientists, product experts, and marketers 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!).

In 2017, we were acquired by Whirlpool, the world’s largest home appliance maker. Together, we are building the fully connected kitchen of the future.

We’re putting the finishing touches on our permanent home office in San Carlos that will open its doors in 2021. Due to COVID-19, we are all working at home at the moment and will remain flexible through mid-year 2021. In the meantime, we are planning and implementing high-level safety protocols for working in the office when the time comes. This role can be remote if you are in the Western US. 

Please talk to us if you have a love for software development, hard problems, and food!
