Crisp is expanding, and we're looking for bright, talented graduates to join our team in the summer of 2020.

Here at Crisp, we value the strength in teamwork, and strongly believe that it’s the key to Crisp’s success. By bringing together bright, motivated creators, wherever they live and work, we are leveraging humanity’s diversity of experience and background in order to understand the challenges facing our food supply, and solve them together. Come join us, and help build the type of business you’d like to be a part of.

We are a socially conscious, distributed team. We give you the opportunity to solve challenges in the global food industry while living where you’re most comfortable and working in areas where you can help foster and grow the community that you are a part of.

As a member of the first few engineering teams at Crisp you have will have the unique opportunity to take products from concept to production as we build towards our goal of becoming the global technology platform for the food industry.

Signs of a great candidate

  • Eager to continue learning. You recognize that finishing your degree is just one step on the path to mastering your craft, and you’re eager to dive into the deep end. You thrive in an environment where you and your peers challenge each other to constantly grow and improve, so that you can be better together.
  • Collaborative. In class or class projects, you knew you had to rely on your group members and worked together to get projects done. Sometimes you would take the lead, sometimes others would. What mattered was that you all worked together to be successful.
  • Disciplined and reliable. You are the student who didn't just finish your work on time, but who went above and beyond to ensure that your projects were successful. When you hit a snag in school or at an internship, you communicated and reset expectations early.
  • Appreciative of honest feedback. You know that the best way to learn and grow is through constructive feedback delivered kindly, but without unnecessary ambiguity. You view feedback given to you as an opportunity to get better and strive to do the same for others.
  • Work smarter and harder. You strive for simple, precise solutions to complex problems. You are fluent with your toolchain and can deliver well written, well-tested features quickly. You find ways of eliminating or automating things that are uninteresting or wasteful, rather than complaining about them.

Crisp's Frontend Tech Stack

  • Statically typed, modern languages. We use TypeScript and React for the UI, and GraphQL with Apollo to communicate with our backend.  Knowledge of these specific technologies is not a requirement. If you’re willing to learn, we’re willing to help you along the way.
  • Continuous deployment. Code is never far from being deployed to production, because if it’s not in production, it’s not solving problems in the real world. Our branch time spans are short, and features under development are hidden behind feature flags.
  • JVM based back-end. The JVM has a robust, rich ecosystem of libraries and tools that we’re leveraging to help us focus on building solutions, not tool-chains.
  • Cloud first. As a services offering in the 21st century, the cloud isn’t the future, it’s the present. We’re fully invested in using the features offered by our cloud provider in order to minimize technical debt and maximize productivity.
  • Micro-services. Not for the sake of the buzz, but when they make sense. By adopting a modern, thoughtful services architecture we’re able to scale organizationally, reduce technical debt, and maintain a high, sustained velocity.
  • Start-up mode.  The team is still small, and the product is fresh.  You’ll be able to exert a large amount of influence, and contribute to decisions that will determine the future of the product and the team.

We are building a team of developers with a breadth of combined experiences so that we can collaboratively build great products. There are no hard requirements on specific background, experience or geographical location. Instead we’re looking for individuals that are capable, reliable, and hoping to grow along with us. Do you have strengths you can share? If so, we’d love to hear from you!
