More About the Role

We are looking for a Frontend Software Engineer to provide technical and architectural leadership for a key Restaurant engineering team. You will conceptualize, design, build and deploy new and innovative products and services for the Grubhub Restaurant Platform to facilitate the wide offerings, capabilities, and feedback loops for our restaurant partners.

We have high standards for code quality, all forms of testing, and intelligent architecture.
