Software Engineer - Elixir

  • $90,000.00 - $140,000.00/year
  • Are you a systems thinker who loves to contribute from prototype to scale? Do you find the thought of being part of an early-stage, fast-growing startup exciting? If so, we’re looking for someone like you to help us take our platform to the next level.


    Minnow is building a network of IoT-enabled food delivery and pickup outposts (we call them "pods") to power the on-demand food economy. Minnow’s delivery pods provide office buildings and other workplaces with a state-of-the-art food amenity, while enabling restaurants to increase off-premise sales by meeting their customers wherever they are. Minnow is a venture-funded company that operates at the intersection of food, real estate, and technology.

    We’re quickly building on a string of successes, having already field tested our first prototype, raised a significant seed round, and built and shipped our second prototype. We’re now generating revenue and gearing up for production.

    We move fast. We take our product very seriously, and can go from concept on paper to installation on site in an astonishingly short time.

    We’re constantly learning. A data first, introspective culture of continuous learning and improvement informs everything we do.

    We make amazing products. The love, attention to detail, and craftsmanship that go into our work are apparent from the moment users interact with it.
