About the startup & role
I am an EIR at Menlo Ventures who is currently laying the groundwork for a completely new take on the nutrition tracking space. This space has been stale for a long time and AI unlocks an opportunity to completely change the experience. I am looking for a 0 to 1 mobile engineer that’s going to craft the core mobile experience behind this exciting new product.

Few important notes about the company

  • This platform is not just about nutrition tracking but about discovery, "fun" is a missing term in this space and we want to bring it back.
  • We're going to make good use of wearable health data to tie your nutrition to outcomes; this is not being done at this stage beyond basic calorie in-out calculations.
  • We're mission-driven and focused on ways to bring the cost for the user to as low as possible, ideally free.
  • We're investigating ways this platform can be used to reduce food waste at a societal level.

Current team

  • Seasoned Founder, a decade in the wearables and health spaces, exited first startup to WHOOP
  • Talented Head of Design, a decade at top tier design companies like Uber, Dropbox, Apple and Patreon

What we're looking for

  • Deep consumer experience, has built B2C mobile apps that scaled
  • Deep knowledge of either Swift or React Native, with a preference for Swift
  • Thought deeply about AI and AI-first experiences, ideally hacked around with LLMs
  • Ready to build quick prototypes to test new concepts
  • 0 to 1 engineer that loves the speed and independence that comes with small agile teams
  • Passion for sweating the details, crafting micro-interactions and animations to create delightful user experiences with a high craft bar

Your responsibilities

  • Full ownership over the mobile development from A to Z, close collaboration with our designer and ML engineer
  • Close collaboration with CEO and ML Engineer on leveraging AI to the max in the development of this product

What we can offer

  • As an early hire, a substantial equity package
  • An opportunity to move into a management position and scale yourself or continue to contribute through great development
  • Competitive cash pay
