Software Engineer, Rails - Full Time


The Feed provides athletes with the widest selection of active nutrition and healthy snacks on the market today. We use science, our experience, and advice from athletes to give our customers personalized recommendations for better nutrition. Our e-commerce platform allows customers to learn about nutrition and then build a custom box for one-time or subscription purchase.

We’re looking for a Rails engineer to join our team to build the software that runs our warehouse. Our software handles everything from assembling and shipping an order, inventory management, and production of finished goods like customized cycling water bottles and personalized daily supplement pouch subscriptions. 

The accelerating growth of our business requires a combination of streamlining our process, and integrating with machines to augment our warehouse staff to be more productive. This role will be hands-on in a literal sense, to familiarize yourself with a process or machine in the warehouse to inform what software to write. 

This is a chance to be part of a growing company in an amazing industry. 

The position is based in our Broomfield, Colorado office. We offer flexible work hours and a hybrid schedule. Being on-site is important for understanding the impact of software on the warehouse.
