Serial tech entrepreneur Ilir Sela started Slice in 2010 with the belief that local pizzerias deserve all of the advantages of major franchises without compromising their independence. Starting with his family’s pizzerias, we now empower over 18,000 restaurants (that’s nearly triple Domino’s U.S. network!) with the technology, services, and collective power that owners need to better serve their digitally minded customers and build lasting businesses. We’re growing and adding more talent to help fulfil this valuable mission. That’s where you come in.

With varied tasks that utilise everything from Spark to Kafka to Kubernetes, you’ll have the opportunity to deepen your knowledge and focus on the areas you find interesting.

The Team

As a team, there is frequent partnership across the business with Data Analytics, Product and Engineering to provide both feature and reporting products. You’ll contribute to knowledge sharing within the team and be able to lean on a friendly bunch of engineers who are happy to share their expertise in return. This role reports to the Director of Data Engineering, and will have support of a Senior Engineer for day to day collaboration.
