Why is this role awesome?
We're building the "Airbnb for event spaces at restaurants" - an $80B offline market. This is a rare opportunity to get the perks of joining an early-stage startup (autonomy, impact, equity) with few of the downsides, as we're well funded and have strong product-market fit (customers in 40 states).

About Perfect Venue

Private events and catering represent about a third of restaurant revenue and are often their highest margin revenue stream. However, most restaurants manage this critical revenue stream using their own home-brewed manual process with poorly organized spreadsheets, cumbersome Word templates, and handwritten credit card authorizations. Errors are costly and can severely harm restaurants' bottom line. Existing solutions are decades old and more complicated and expensive than what most restaurants need.

For guests looking to book a venue, the process is equally frustrating. Often it requires combing the internet, sending dozens of emails, and once a venue is booked - a lengthy back and forth over proposal documents that are often out of date and poorly formatted.

We’re changing that. Our mission is to bring communities together and empower small businesses by making the event booking experience magical.

With our all-in-one event management tool, we save restaurants hours every day and drive tens of thousands of dollars in new revenue. Our tool allows restaurants to manage inbound leads, send digital proposals, and accept online payments in one integrated platform. By being more affordable and easier to use than existing solutions, we can empower independent restaurants to compete with large chains and hotels.

This is just the beginning. Our product roadmap includes:

  • Build a marketplace (à la Airbnb, Open Table) to help guests book restaurants
  • Build a native app for iOS and Android to help our customers manage events on the go
  • Expand into other types of venues (Hotels, Event Centers) and other types of businesses (Caterers, Florists)


The Opportunity

As restaurants are reopening around the country, we’re seeing a surge in demand. You would be the first engineer working directly with the technical co-founder. Being the first engineer, you will weigh in on all product decisions, play an integral role in building out the engineering team, shape company culture, and spearhead new initiatives.

Though we have lots of room to grow, our product has already shown significant traction with many customers around the country paying hundreds of dollars a month for the service. We are venture-backed by leading Silicon Valley VCs including the first investor in Zoom. We have a tremendous vision for the future. Come build it with us.


About You

You want to do the best work of your life and build a product that matters - you're a product engineer. You're an entrepreneur that has either started or tried to start your own startup in the past. You value resourcefulness and pragmatism, if you don’t know how to do something, you will FITFO. You may have spent time in the navy, but you are a pirate at heart (metaphorically) - you like ambiguity and uncertainty, not structure and order. And of course, you enjoy eating at great restaurants.
