At Olo we develop an online food ordering platform used by many of the country's largest restaurant chains, reaching millions of consumers. Chances are if you've ordered directly from a restaurant brand's app or website, we've made that happen.

As part of the Technology Evolution Team at Olo, you'll work on transformative cross-cutting projects sponsored by our CTO, with a large focus on scaling our e-commerce platform. Reporting to an Engineering Manager, you'll be part of a small team that works with product engineering teams to ensure that our systems can scale predictably and reliably, and ushering in changes to our technology stack. This is a hands-on role where you will collaborate on designs and contribute to the implementation.

We aim to collaborate well. We encourage new ideas and experimentation. No part of the codebase is off limits. We take pride in a neat codebase with automated tests and continuous integration, and encourage constant refactoring. You'll work with a passionate team dedicated to delivering amazing products using modern technologies.
