Make a meaningful impact

Shelf Engine forecasts and orders highly perishable foods for grocery stores. We harness the power of AI to help retailers save time, sell more, and waste less.

If you’re mission-obsessed and passionate about sustainability, you’re in the right place. Not only are we solving complex problems at scale, we’re transforming an industry ripe for innovation.

Headquartered in Seattle, we’re leaving a legacy for generations to come.

Good ideas come from everywhere. We feel empowered to share suggestions, then take action to execute our vision to improve the company.

We're collaborative.

We don’t shy away from complex issues. Our attitude is to tackle challenges together and help each other solve them.

We're innovative.

We dream up new ways of doing things—and know not every attempt will be a slam dunk. We’re honest about our successes and mishaps.

We're dynamic.

We’re strong performers who juggle a great deal in a fast-paced, high-growth environment.

We're transparent.

Our leadership is accessible and approachable, sharing accurate, timely information to help every team member make the best decisions.

We're pretty fun.

Bird-watching? Baking? Sports Ball? There’s a group for every passion to help you bring your true shelf to work. (Fun fact: we love puns.)
