About Bite

At Bite, we are reimagining the restaurant guest experience. Our flagship product, Bite Kiosk, brings together technologies like facial recognition and machine learning to deliver restaurant guests a personalized and delightful ordering experience that, in turn, makes restaurant brands more profitable.

Today, Bite powers in-store ordering for leading restaurant brands like By Chloe, Noodles and Co., Togo’s, Veggie Grill, and Num Pang. Headquartered in New York City, Bite continues to grow aggressively as we work towards elevating hospitality everywhere.

About the Role

We are looking for an exceptional Software Engineer to join our team in New York and help us bring our platform to the next level so we can serve more guests and more restaurants. We are looking for someone who's quick on their feet as we are a lean team that likes to move fast and learn new things on the go. We are all about fast iteration, while maintaining the attention to detail that is essential to a user experience that keeps guests coming back.

In order to provide a seamless experience both to guests and to restaurant brands, our platform has to communicate with a broad and ever-growing array of external services. We have a modular plug-n-play architecture that makes it easy to add any new integration from Point of Sale systems, to loyalty platforms, to payments processors. We also have a completely customizable guest UI that can be deployed to every restaurant in seconds. And it's all built using Node.js and MongoDB. There is never a lack of interesting challenges in need of inventive solutions, and we’d love to have you experimenting alongside us.

What you will be responsible for:

● Building modular, well-tested, and documented code
● Developing and architecting Node.js APIs and backend services
● Always thinking about scalability, availability, and security
● Collaborating closely with the engineering and product teams
● Publishing, deploying, monitoring, and troubleshooting code

Your qualities:

● You’ll need deep JavaScript experience and a history of building performant Node.js applications
● You keep up to date with all the latest developments in the space and are excited about applying them
● You have a passion for developing high-quality, well-tested code
● You’re always refactoring your code to be cleaner and using build tools to optimize performance
● You have experience developing and debugging Node.js applications in a large-scale production environment
● You’re familiar with unit testing, integration testing, and end-to-end testing and know when each is appropriate
● You have experience with Github and Agile Development
● You're knowledgeable in deploying to and monitoring applications in AWS or other cloud infrastructure
