PlateJoy is building the technology to power disease prevention and treatment through digital nutrition programs that are more efficacious than drugs. We believe in the power of healthy food to change lives.

We’ve been featured in The New York Times, The Today Show, Business Insider’s 50 Coolest Companies in America, Fast Company’s Innovation by Design Awards, Forbes 30 Under 30 and more. You can learn more about what we do here and here.

We’re seeking our first engineering hire to take the lead (in collaboration with our technical cofounder) implementing new features as we build out the PlateJoy chronic disease interventions. Our codebase is robust, built in Ruby on Rails 5.1 and React 16, with an extensive RSpec suite. We work with PHI (protected health information), so everything we do is HIPAA compliant, but we leverage the modern SaaS ecosystem (e.g. Datica) to keep ourselves as nimble as possible.

We’re a small but growing, close-knit team. We work hard but laugh a lot. Humility and willingness to learn are key.

This position requires someone who can jump in and begin contributing to a complex Rails & React app, so we need someone with depth of experience who can also work remotely, in collaboration with our CTO, Daniel.


  • At least 4 years’ experience as a Rails developer
  • At least 2 years’ experience working in React

About PlateJoy

Ultra-personalized, fast recipes and shopping lists to prepare delicious meals tailored to your lifestyle.

We started PlateJoy because we know how hard it is to maintain a healthy diet on top of a busy schedule. Too often, we’d come home after a long day and order unhealthy take-out because there was nothing in the fridge. Or we’d find ourselves in line at yet another fast food restaurant, vowing to plan better in the future.

We believe that healthy eating should be the most convenient option, not the least convenient, as it often is. We also believe there is beauty in ease and simplicity, so we’ve worked to make the entire PlateJoy experience as seamless as possible. The end result is a refrigerator stocked with healthy foods.
