What makes us different
We are a B Corp
We are a B Corp - a group of about 2500 companies (like Patagonia and Ben & Jerry's) that prioritize social & environmental impact as well as profits. We can only do well if our community, environment, employees, and customers do well too. 
We have to engineer to move physical product; which is hard! And fun!
Scaling our technology doesn't just mean more users online, but also shipping and managing physical product at scale. Ever tried optimizing order routing across a network of distribution centers to minimize order splitting? Here's your chance. 
We sell real things to real people, and make an impact
We’re not selling to Silicon Valley & New York; Our customers are real families across the United States. We’ve helped hundreds of thousands of families make better decisions and use more sustainable products. 
We ship code to production every day
We believe the key to development speed lies in automation, testing, and incremental change (incremental change, testing, and automation ). Code isn't adding value if it's sitting in a branch; we are optimized to get to production and make an impact. 
The Team
Our engineering team of 22 (18 in San Francisco) works primarily in Python (we have Django, Flask, and, command line applications) and ES6 + VUE on the front end. On any given day, you’ll find engineers collaborating to track down the source of a strange pattern in our metrics, pair programming on a piece of brand new functionality, heads-down on a challenging refactor, or meeting with other departments to understand the business context for what we’re building. We are looking for exceptional developers to take on big challenges and innovate with our fast-growing team.
