BigOven is hiring!
Are you passionate about creating remarkably useful user experiences that millions of people can enjoy every day? Are you excited by the potential of tablets, smartphones and the cloud? Would you like to work for company modeled along the lines of 37Signals or Fog Creek -- a creative team of focused professionals working on a big mission?
Then BigOven may be your place. Serving millions of cooks every month with award-winning apps and companion website, BigOven's mission is to get home cooks organized and inspired, in the kitchen or on the go. Our target market is huge -- pretty much anyone who has a smartphone, tablet or web access who cooks. Started in 2004 by Steve Murch, a highly successful serial entrepreneur, BigOven has grown rapidly to 9+ million downloads and now welcomes thousands of new signups every day. BigOven's mobile apps consistently get 4.5/5 star ratings on every platform, and cooks and food brands alike are intrigued by our plans.
Our Fremont-area Seattle office is new. Through 2012, BigOven was run entirely remotely. Our small handful of rockstar team members has collaborated from around the country, much like an open-source team coordinates their work.
Now that we've hit some key growth milestones, we've opened our Seattle office, and it's your chance to get in on the ground floor.
We are located right in the heart of Seattle's beautiful and hip Fremont neighborhood. Great cafés and lunch spots are steps away, and we're just two blocks from the Burke-Gilman bicycle trail.Powered by ZipRecruiter
Started in 2004 by Steve Murch, former VP of Expedia and Microsoft excecutive, BigOven is now the leading independent cooking app with over 7 million downloads, 1.7 million registered users and 350,000 recipes posted in a shared archive. BigOven helps home cooks get organized, in the kitchen and on-the-go.
BigOven's new office is located right in the heart of Fremont, just off the Burke-Gilman trail, making it an easy bike ride from the University district, Wallingford or Ballard. Our loft has great views, a full kitchen, and even a roof deck for spring/summer cookouts.
We value customer success, innovation. We are a relatively small, very creative group of passionate professionals building something new and fantastic. No prima-donnas. BigOven is the mobile innovation leader in the recipe category -- first to iPhone, first to iPad, first to Android and Windows Phone. And we're revolutionizing the way the world's cooks discover, plan, shop for and create their daily meals.
After years of working on our own in a virtual-company format, BigOven has set up headquarters in Seattle's Fremont neighborhood. The bar is high -- we are adding to an existing team of rock-star developers and marketers.
BigOven has won numerous awards, including "Readers Choice - Best Recipe App" in both 2011 and 2012 by the readers of About.com, and has been twice-nominated for "Best Bootstrapped Startup of the Year" by Geekwire.com. It's been featured in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and Newsweek. But that's just a start -- we've got a great deal more in store for the future.
