As we continue our rapid growth at Flashfood, we are looking for experienced Software Engineers to join our team. You are a passionate developer with deep technical skills, and you’re comfortable working in evolving technology infrastructure.

You are a problem solver, forward-thinker, and you’re excited about having a big impact. You also love to have fun with your team and help them grow too.


Who We Are:


With the rising cost of food and the challenges faced by our supply chain, Flashfood has become a staple in many North American families.

At Flashfood, we are on a mission to reduce the environmental impact of food waste and provide our communities with easier access to healthy, affordable food.

We are tackling this gigantic problem together, with a diverse team of people from all over the globe.                                                                                                                                                   


At Flashfood, we live by our nine culture boards. What are they, you ask? They are a set of principles and values that drive us to stay confident but humble, patient but persistent, united but able to challenge, and most of all, to create a safe space to be authentic and have fun. Our common goal and commitment to a sustainable future keep us motivated to push through all the challenges we face together. 


We are purposeful about instilling inclusion into our company culture and are committed to building a blame-free culture where people have the ability to learn and grow. Our current team is over 51% women, and we’re proud to say over 47% female representation within leadership positions.
