 Job Description

You will work to deliver best in class user experiences on our consumer-facing pizza ordering app or our restaurant-facing management apps

What is Slice?

Slice is the leading technology and marketing platform made exclusively for local pizzerias, making it super easy to order delicious, authentic local pizza anywhere, anytime. We serve the $44 billion U.S. pizzeria market in two ways: by providing a pizza-centric mobile and web ordering experience for consumers, and by empowering local restaurants with the technology, tools, and marketing to grow their business, while helping them compete with Big Pizza. Can you imagine what a small mom and pop pizza shop could achieve with the resources of Domino’s?

Slice was born in 2011 and has quietly bootstrapped its way to building a network of more than 10,000 pizzerias nationwide. Ilir Sela, our founder and CEO, started the company as a passion project to help his friends and family in the pizza business, but he quickly saw a massive opportunity to champion these small businesses by bringing their bites to the masses. Ilir has since built an amazing team of operators, marketers, technologists, and investors — all dedicated to making it easier for people to enjoy their favorite local pizza.

 

Yes, we have a pizza philosophy

Across the country, pizza is made by people who care about craft, history, and culture. We created Slice to champion the small pizzerias by connecting those proud makers with customers who are just as passionate about their pizza. We celebrate pizza as the ultimate shareable food that brings people together for more than just a bite.

We’re growing our team every day — so, if you’ve got a passion for local, authentic pizza and the drive to help share it with the world, we’d love to have you on the team!

 

What You’ll Do:

  • Display exceptional productivity when working both independently and with others on shared goals
  • Work to deliver best in class user experiences on our consumer-facing pizza ordering app or our restaurant-facing management apps
  • You’ll have a major impact on the features and performance of all of our applications
  • Collaborate with our designers and product team to build meaningful features and experiences for all our users

  • Lead by example by writing very high quality, maintainable code

  • Advanced knowledge of Java or Kotlin
  • Excellent problem solving, analytical and organisational skills
  • Fluent in English with strong communication skills
  • A drive to improve your skills and further your knowledge
  • Able to clearly express opinions on product design, while respecting the thoughts and opinions of your peers

Interested?

We operate like a startup, so being self-motivated, curious, and flexible is a good start. You prefer to come up with your own solutions to problems but are not afraid to ask for help. You enjoy making suggestions for how to improve our product and business, no matter the department. You’re the kind of person who roots for the underdog. And lastly, this job will probably be a lot easier if you have a soulmate-level love for authentic pizza.

Why Slice?
