Who Is Foodsmart?
At Foodsmart, we’re knee-deep in changing the food and nutrition landscape and we’re leveraging technology and our team of bright minds with big hearts to make it happen. We believe that eating well should be within reach for all, not some. That food should be accessible and affordable and the foundation of good health. And that we have a role to pay in addressing the nutrition insecurity that plagues too many, and that has a direct impact on our health and susceptibility to illness.
We know the Foodsmart approach works, and we know it matters because we have the clinical outcomes published in major journals, serve >20% of the Fortune 500 and 4 out of 5 major health plans, and have the community engagement to back it up. And because we’re all Foodsmart customers.
We are working parents. We are doctors. We are patients. We have busy lives, tight budgets and need to feed picky eaters. We have lived in households that used SNAP and clipped coupons. So we built a platform that truly changes health outcomes and improves lives.
Our registered dietitians work with individuals to offer personalized nutrition guidance and connect them to the Foodsmart digital platform available on mobile and web, to create sustainable behavior change and deliver real results. Our integrated healthy food marketplace, including partners such as Walmart, Instacart, Grubhub, and others, allow individuals to go from meal planning to grocery delivery in minutes — saving them time and money.
We are a Series C startup based in San Francisco but support a remote working model. Are you ready to join our team and help solve one of the biggest problems facing the world today?

Attention to detail is second nature for you and you’ve done enough projects to instinctively know what works, and what doesn’t.
