What Is Snackpass 🤔
It’s such a great time to join Snackpass!
We are building a way to buy anything with friends, starting with restaurant takeout on college campuses. Students use Snackpass to order ahead at local restaurants, skip the line and get discounts with their friends. After every purchase, you get a reward point for yourself and a bonus point to send to a friend.
We're helping restaurants transition to digital and contactless to thrive in a post COVID world where takeout is a core pillar of every restaurant.
We believe that
1. all restaurant orders will move from offline (physical credit cards) to online (digital ordering)
2. all e-commerce will go social, starting with food.
In the semester we launched, over 80% of Yale student body started using Snackpass to order food. We’ve repeated our success at multiple campuses (Brown, Berkeley, Michigan, Dartmouth) and are looking to expand to 100 campuses, and then radiate into surrounding cities.
We're looking for creative and ambitious people to join our team! We'd love to talk with you.
Snackpass is a startup backed by Andreessen Horowitz, Y Combinator, General Catalyst and First Round Capital, the same firms who invested in Square, Uber and Airbnb.
Our software engineers are determined to build the most fun, convenient and social experiences for our customers. We are also building products for our restaurant partners to grow their customer base and improve their operations.
At Snackpass, you will talk to customers, find and fix pain points on the fly, and build extensive internal tooling to support on-the-ground launch operations. You will be building a scalable payments platform that handles marketplace transactions between users and restaurants: automated payouts, promotions, customer analytics and acquisition tools, and recommendations.
We believe operating a brick-and-mortar restaurant should be as easy as operating an online Shopify store. Most local business still run on legacy systems. At Snackpass, we are building the OS for local commerce.
