Kitchensurfing is a global marketplace for people that love food. We’re changing the way
people eat and we’re building the largest common table in the
world—distributed and at web-scale. Come join us at our home table.
At Kitchensurfing, we believe that a shared meal is humanizing in a way that little else can be, that
people should take more time to enjoy food and enjoy it with others, and that the work you do should be
intellectually rewarding, but also afford the opportunity to see real smiles on faces.
“For some customers, those experiences are unexpectedly personal. The host in Astoria,
a 32-year-old software developer who did not feel comfortable providing his name,
reported that the meeting initially bristled with awkwardness. “The whole time I was thinking,
‘Do I help her?’” he recalled. But by mealtime, he said: “It was basically like we hired a friend
that could cook really well and then we all hung out and ate.””
We work out of a beautiful townhouse in Gowanus, Brooklyn where we’re building a tasting table on the ground floor to showcase talented chefs from our global community.
We've built our workspace to reflect our values about humanizing work, and we've figured out how to do this at a significant discount to a windowless white box with fluorescent lights in Manhattan. We have nap rooms and showers — and nearby gyms, climbing gyms, and great cycling and running territory. Oh, we also have a sun deck.
Despite having deep backgrounds in computer science and applied math, we ultimately believe that people trump technology. We orient our lives and our product accordingly. Open Job Positions >
Your work will resonate with the thousands of people and chefs that have joined us around the world and that grow in number every day. We are a small, tight team where we expect every member to understand our mission, our most pressing objectives, and how those tie into their work.
For developers and designers, this means that you will never be handed product mandates without being able to contextualize why it’s an important problem or feature.
It also means that we empower our interns to run and launch grassroots emergency relief programs with our community.
