About Zipongo

San Francisco-based Zipongo (Eating Well Made Simple) has opened up the "Food Benefits Management" category to tackle chronic disease through nutrition. Zipongo's FBM platform helps users manage their nutrition via the Health (Digital Dietitian), Cooking (recipes, meal planning, grocery delivery, discounts, etc) and Restaurants (menus, restaurant ordering, workplace cafes) tools of our Zipongo Engage platform. In addition, the Zipongo FoodScripts platform helps users manage their disease ("Food as Medicine") and helps risk-bearing healthcare companies and employers drive an ROI vs. drug and traditional-only provider spending.

    • Experience developing and shipping highly scalable web, or mobile applications.
    • Strong MySQL background and knowledge of REST API architectures
    • Experience with MVC architecture
    • Loves to collaborate with product and design teams
    • Excellent critical thinking, problem solving and analytical skills
    • Detail-oriented, motivated and a self-starter who can work without supervision
    • Degree in Computer Science or related technical discipline (or equivalent)
    • Minimum 2+ years of professional experience

Bonus points for

We believe that experimenting, measuring results, and iterating with data support is the best process for solving hard problems.

Impactful -
We are passionate about having a positive impact on health and having a positive attitude.

Collaborative -
We value collaboration, respect, and team over ego. We believe that as a team we can achieve far more than as a group of individuals, and that the best ideas are developed through a collaborative process.
