    The Military, Linguistics, and Cooking - The Munchery Blog

    I grew up in Wenatchee, Washington, a small town on the banks of the Columbia River in the warmer, drier, apple-growing region of the state. I didn't grow up in a foodie household. We had PB&J sandwiches on white bread for lunch, and Hamburger Helper for dinner a couple times a week.

Munchery – Why Work For Us?


MAKING EATING BETTER EASIER

We got our start back in 2010 as a couple of busy new parents desperate for an easier answer to "what’s for dinner?" Because we’ve all been there.

It’s late afternoon, and your schedule is overflowing. Meetings for this, and IMs for that. You’re overcommitted, under caffeinated and inbox zero seems like a cruel joke.

At some point, you’ve gotta figure out what’s for dinner. And when you’re too busy or tired to cook, it’s all too easy to just grab something fast on nights like these. But usually the easy option isn’t the best one for you.

We thought there had to be a better way, and that’s why we started Munchery. To make the easy option for putting dinner on the table the better one for you and the people you care about — even if that table was made for coffee or it’s actually your desk.

Our chefs use the best fresh ingredients in every dish.

We like to know what we’re eating, so we make sure to provide complete ingredient lists and nutritional data for every dish. We take pictures of each one and do our best to describe our food so you’ll have a sense of whether you’ll like it or not.

Our food comes from the same great food vendors used by local restaurants. For example, in San Francisco we use Golden Gate Meats, Veggie Works, and Panorama Bakery. All of our kitchens buy their ingredients from similar vendors.

We select our ingredients carefully. Although we do use some items—like ketchup or hoisin sauce—that contain preservatives or high fructose corn syrup, we are always working to find options that minimize or eliminate them from our food.

Since we love food, we’re always looking for ways to bring the best dining experiences to our customers. We partner with companies who make food we love and want to eat—from Le Petit Pot’s luscious organic pot de crèmes on our San Francisco menu to the organic, GMO-free tofu and soy from Hodo Soy Beanery in our cooking kits.

Our Vision: 

To make real food accessible to everyone, everywhere.


Our Core Values:

Humility: We think beyond ourselves, always ensuring what we do is good for our teammates, the company, and the community.

Embrace Change: We do not accept how it is today as how it should be.

Take initiative:We won't wait to be asked to make that change.

Integrity: We are thoughtful in our actions, always remaining true to the company vision.

Giving back is important to us. Making sure everyone gets a good dinner is why we started this company. We will donate 1% of every eligible purchase to the charitable organization of your choice.

JOIN TEAM MUNCHERY

Good food should be convenient, diverse, healthy, and, above all, delicious. We’re changing how people answer “what’s for dinner” with a vertically integrated food delivery company. From cooking the meals to engineering the app to delivering the food, we do it all.

LOVE FOOD, LOVE TECH

A love of food and a love of tech define the entire company, so they should define you too. We love multi-talented people. Engineers who spend their weekends cooking, drivers who are into photography, cooks up on the latest gadgetry—people with strong interests intrigue us and we know they make our teams stronger. We also value flexibility, creativity, and a nice dose of grit.

WORK THAT’S DELICIOUS

Do rewarding work, knowing that you’re helping people get good food on the table. Do it in a fun, relaxed environment—one that’s full of tasty treats just waiting for you in the kitchen, as well as benefits.

    I have been working at Munchery (More than a year)

    Pros

    Munchery has great culture and is fun place to work at, at least as a delivery driver. Tons of free food (Steaks, Salmon, and much more) will cut your grocery bill to almost nothing and everyone works together as a team to get all the delivers completed.

    Cons

    Pay and hours leaves one to desire more.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Munchery.

    Interview

    The interview process was brief and informal but qualitative. I met with the then General Manager, a Logistics Lead and the People Operations Manager. They all were very nice and accommodating.
