Founded in 2013, SALIDO continuously innovates hospitality technology so that operators can lower costs and increase profits. We are building the first-ever Restaurant Operating System that combines all operating needs on one cohesive platform. At their present state, restaurants are becoming less and less profitable. Rent, labor, food, and technology costs are constantly increasing and margins are endlessly shrinking. In order to combat this, they need the best technology that will give them control of their business. From our offices in Soho, New York City, we are dedicated to changing the way the hospitality industry operates, to create a system that is built for the best interests of restaurants all over the world.
Many companies are data driven, but being on the bleeding edge of the hospitality industry, we partner with Data to conquer a whole new world of challenges. Data is the center of our business—it drives the development of our platform, measures the effectiveness of our technology, and surfaces opportunities to improve how SALIDO operates. It is impossible to be at SALIDO and not feel the presence of Data.
Needless to say, as a member of the Engineering Team at SALIDO, you will be at the epicenter of an amazing company experiencing extreme growth and solving the challenges that come with scaling rapidly. Accessibility of insight requires accessibility of data; quality of insight requires quality of data. And everyone deserves accessibility to quality data.
As a Platform Engineer, you will be building and scaling a data workflow platform that enables reliable, trustworthy, and approachable data delivered to thousands of SALIDO platform users. Your software will model, curate and deliver data that powers core services at SALIDO.
-A skilled practitioner. You are well-versed in software and data design patterns. Your code is understandable, maintainable, and reusable.
