Senior Software Engineer (ecommerce)

ChefSteps is seeking a full-time Senior Software Engineer to help us revolutionize the home kitchen. Is it you we’re looking for?


We are a Seattle-based cooking and technology company dedicated to inspiring home cooks to cook more often and have more fun doing it. We design our software and hardware products to solve problems, boost creative instincts, and encourage experimentation in the home kitchen. As a key member of our software development team, the backend engineer plays a vital role in making that vision a reality. There’s also a lot of delicious food.


We are looking for a seasoned, skilled backend engineer with a passion for ecommerce—bonus points if you love food and cooking. Ideally, you have worked with the Shopify API and accounting integrations, and you have been responsible for the entire ordering shebang. You’re a pro at ensuring that the backend shopping experience is seamless and reliable. Our current stack is Ruby on Rails, AWS, and Node.js, but we’re open to engineers with knowledge of other technologies.


  • Demonstrated ability to design and implement an integrated eCommerce experience
  • Skill at writing elegant, reusable, well-tested code
  • Sense of balance: you deliver excellent work while also shipping rapidly and iteratively
  • Ability to design a system involving heterogeneous clients and complex asynchronous workers—you should be able to thoughtfully explain the tradeoffs of your architecture
  • Passion for developing elegant, future-proofed APIs
  • Skill at prototyping rapidly, then turning prototypes into production-ready code

​Bonus skills:

  • Background working on hardware or firmware projects
  • Ability to support auditing, trending, and reconciliation efforts for financial specialists
  • Hands-on architectural experience building large-scale distributed systems
