About Us

Imagine: 30 unique restaurants to order from, brought to your door in under 30 minutes. That’s what our customers experience.  

At Wonder, we want to make world-class food within reach, no matter where you live. That’s why we’ve created a vertically integrated, new standard of dining that will allow you to enjoy menus from award-winning chefs and iconic restaurants across the country, all in one place. Our elevated brick + mortar locations will offer pick up and dine in options, as well as delivery to your home. 

As a food-tech startup backed by top-tier venture capital and led by a team of experienced entrepreneurs—including some of the most accomplished leaders in the technology, culinary, and logistics industries—we’re growing. Join us in pioneering a new category of dining called “Fast-Fine”, and revolutionizing the way people eat. 

About the role

The Wonder Culinary team is the core of Wonder’s business. Our R&D team has engineered high quality and delicious food specifically designed for our cooking systems while our Production team delivers our food at scale, on time and at cost. As the lead designer for the Culinary Product team, you will own design for two key products – Cookbook and SPORK. 

A critical backbone to our culinary intellectual property and to our entire operations is our recipe data. Cookbook is our centralized recipe data tool, which powers the entire lifecycle of our operations – from R&D entering initial recipe drafts to detailed manufacturing specifications for our central commissary to basic cooking instructions for chefs within our brick + mortar locations. The data created and managed in Cookbook powers all our downstream systems. The objective is to design a tool that is usable by non-technical folks yet outputs accurate technical manufacturing specifications. You will also tackle key design challenges unique to our business such as designing a workflow to create and manage multiple versions of recipes. 

SPORK is our commissary kitchen management tool and interactive touchscreen application for chefs. SPORK provides executive chefs the data and tools to manage their kitchens’ tasks for the day and guides individual production chefs though the cooking and assembly processes while capturing key operational data such as yields, and time spent per recipe. Cookbook provides the recipe data that powers SPORK. The objective is to design an interface that provides clear instructions and captures critical operational data with minimal user interaction.

  • Work in a small team to help define the product strategy and iteratively improve user experience 
  • Tackle complex and ambiguous projects, collaborating with Research, Product Management, Engineering and Business partners to understand your users and collect data needed to make critical design decisions

The way you work

We’re in the very early days of our company. This is a startup culture in a hyper growth environment. For us, that means designers are given a lot of ownership and responsibility. As a product designer, you will thrive if you...

  • Enjoy interacting with your users regularly 
  • Enjoy collaborating with your product and engineering counterparts in a zero-ego environment
  • Can manage multiple initiatives concurrently
