About Elav:

Our mission is to eliminate the frictions of ordering in full-service restaurants.

We believe that by making the “front of the house” more efficient, we can unlock more value for the restaurant in terms of savings and increase in revenue, as well as for the customer in terms of quality of service and convenience.

The Eat Like A VIP app will allow restaurant customers to order their meals directly from their phones, without requiring the assistance of a waiter.

Working at ELAV

  • You will work whenever you feel you are the most productive. The exception to this is when you have set up a time to work or meet with other teammates
  • Our group meetings are generally in the afternoon around 4 pm (UTC +1), depending on your geographical location after the itis (postprandial somnolence) has passed. We meet on Mondays to set up the goals for the upcoming week, and Wednesdays to give a status update on the progress of the week's goals
  • One-on-Ones happen at least bi-weekly, but they can happen as often as you find them necessary. These meetings are for you. It’s for us to make sure you are hitting your personal/academic/professional goals. We want to help you develop as a person, and for you to help us develop as people as well
  • You will submit daily EOD (End of Day) reports summarizing the day’s issues, achievements, any needs you might have concerning the work, as well as tasks for the next day
  • Nobody checks anybody as for when and how they work – only the results are important
  • Don't work if you are sick. It's way better to rest and recover quicker than work at half power for a long time
  • If you feel you are stuck with a task don't hesitate to ask for help. There are no stupid questions, nobody expects you to know everything
  • You build the culture

Interview Process:

  • CV review
  • Links to previous projects you built or helped build will be helpful

    • 30m - 1h video interview, where we'll just ask some basic questions to understand whether you are a fit for this role within ELAV
    • Online technical assessment
    • 1-2 weeks paid trial project, this gives us an opportunity to get to know each other prior to pursuing a full-time offer. It’s also a chance for candidates to get to know the ELAV team and make sure that it’s a good fit for them
