Director of Engineering, ChefOS Zone

Cook Unity



The CookUnity ChefOS is all of the tools, processes, and physical support that our chefs need to deliver their best meals every day of the week. We believe the best chefs are masters of their craft, and CookUnity aspires to be the best place for them to perform that craft. The ChefOS will enable them at scale. CookUnity’s customers expect the best quality and variety, and our chefs are masters of delivering on that. The ChefOS Zone is responsible for making that happen every day through smart software, good process, and aligned incentives that drive behavior for the best possible experience for our customers. Some of the best Chefs in America will be your close collaborators. Not only CookUnity's "rising stars", but also the well-known Chefs we've partnered with this year as part of our Creators Club (e.g. Pierre Thiam, Esther Choi, JJ Johnson, Ali Maffucci, Marc Forgione, Einat Admony, and more!). The Director of Engineering for the ChefOS Zone is highly cross functional, and you'll be collaborating with leaders from across the organization. This leadership position will oversee three squads (with more soon), enabling us to take all the orders placed each week by our customers, get the freshest ingredients into the hands of the chefs at the right moment, give the chefs the intel they need to make the best meals, and package up and deliver those meals with world-class reliability. We are rapidly growing our kitchens, customers, and chefs, so this person needs to be able to think in incredible detail, while also zooming out to know how what we are putting in place will scale nationally (and, in time, internationally). You’ll set the bar and mentor tech leads on how to do this for their squads. As a leader of the ChefOS Zone, you’ll partner with product, design, and data leadership, as well as leaders in Operations, Chef Success, and in the local markets to establish the product strategy, OKRs, and roadmap.
