About the company
Blue Apron was founded in 2012 premised on a simple desire—our founders wanted to cook at home with their families, but they found grocery shopping and menu planning burdensome, time-consuming, and expensive. Our founders hand-packed the first Blue Apron boxes themselves, delivered them to family and friends, and received immediate positive feedback. Since those initial deliveries, we have scaled rapidly, developing our expertise and an ever-more ambitious vision. We are reimagining the way that food is produced, distributed, and consumed, and as a result, building a better food system that benefits consumers, food producers, and the planet. The nature of our business carries with it unique and exciting challenges, and our employees working across our fives offices, take on these complexities to ensure each customer receives the highest quality product every week. Our core product is the cooking experience we help our customers create. Central to these experiences are the original recipes we design and send along with fresh, seasonal ingredients directly to our customers. We also sell wine, which can be paired with our meals, and kitchen tools and staples we use in our test kitchens where we create new recipes. Our customers often cook with us multiple times each week, and they trust us to craft delicious recipes to feed their families and loved ones. We’re thrilled to be welcomed into our customers' homes and part of their weekly cooking routine!
Our Technology team is a collection of over 50 talented engineers, analysts, designers, and product managers who have built our web and e-commerce applications, our mobile (iOS and Android) apps, our proprietary Warehouse Management System, and our data platform (among many other things). Within Engineering, the Data team is responsible for our enterprise data warehouse, business intelligence platform, ETL processes, machine learning models and deployment infrastructure, including demand forecasting, personalization and product recommendations.
