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 28M 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 digital kitchen of the future globally.

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 have appetizing aspirations to build the fully connected kitchen of the future.

We recently moved into our brand new home office in San Carlos, close to CalTrain and Highway 101.  Additionally, we have implemented high-level safety protocols for working in the office and offer a flexible work model to allow employees to work where they are most productive.

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