We build products that people love. 

Millions of diners and thousands of restaurants around the world use our products. In Engineering at OpenTable, we take pleasure in Software Design.

We take ownership of our features from ideas to delivery — and would love to learn more about how you might contribute to our growing team.

We believe that design helps us understand the world. 

We’re reimagining how people discover and enjoy great restaurants across the world. At OpenTable, design is meaningful. It helps us understand the world around us. It brings delight to the ordinary. We’re a group of designers, writers and researchers who believe that good ideas come from everywhere and collaboration is our greatest tool. We leave our titles at the door and seek opportunities to help each other grow and learn new things daily.

Our product team builds solutions that enhance the magic of what can happen around a restaurant table. The OpenTable product development process is agile, but adapted to suit various teams. We are individual owners but collaborate as a team. We love our engineers and design teams, and work beside them every day. We are always on the lookout for our next challenge, and our walls are filled with mockups and inspiration.

    I have been working at OpenTable full-time


    The culture here is very collaborative and mission driven. It feels like everyone is bought into the vision of the company, which makes it easy to come into work everyday and move the needle. This, to me, is evidenced by the tenure of much of the management and the quality of work that is done in many departments, especially product and engineering. Recently, the company has put a huge focus on culture and employee performance, which has been a breathe of fresh air to know that good work equates to career growth and rewards.


    For a company that focuses on food and dining, some more perks to that end would feel more appropriate (but I guess not necessary). I would have more here but the company has been proactive about addressing issues and mine have been.

    Advice to Management

    Let's leverage our value of hospitality and ingrain it more deeply into our culture. More company events/activities/initiatives that bring different departments together.
