How often do you come across a company that has redefined an entire industry? Maybe even created one from scratch? And what if that company’s main focus is a simple yet profoundly powerful product that unites family and friends, creates rich and memorable experiences and is becoming a staple of the American dinner table more each day?
We’re Lot18 , the company that’s helped hundreds of thousands of Americans discover and buy wines in a completely new way. Wine is a $40 billion industry in the U.S., larger than music and Hollywood, and is growing every year. But until the launch of Lot18 two years ago, family-owned producers and discerning wine lovers had no way to find each other. In less than two years, Lot18 has helped our members purchase and receive more than 1 million bottles from more than 500 wineries around the world. And we’re just getting started.
Our team comprises deeply passionate and experienced wine and startup veterans, and our investors – FirstMark Capital, Accel Partners and New Enterprise Associates –who have contributed over $50M to Lot18– are behind almost every big-name Web brand you can think of, including Salesforce, Gilt, Facebook, Dropbox, Spotify, Bonobos, Stubhub, Kayak and Pinterest, to name but a few.
Innovation is woven into the fabric of our company. No idea is immune to questioning or testing, and every day we push our team to take risks and experiment. We look for folks who think in the same way and can build further on our philosophies, helping to evolve the way we create, engineer and deliver the most elegant, educational, sophisticated and gratifying wine-buying experience in the world.
It takes top talent to transform an industry that began, more or less, at the dawn of civilization and that has only just begun to change. If you think you can help, we want to hear from you.
We are currently looking for a well-rounded DevOps Engineer to join our talented development team and work closely with both software and operations engineering. You will help to influence architecture decisions and scale our technology stack. As a DevOps Engineer at Lot18 you’ll have opportunities to work with cutting edge technologies, partner with other groups, and build important systems that serve both internal users and our customers.
