Data Manager for Food App

We are seeking a Data Manager to help with food ingredient categorization!

You love food and technology.

You regularly use mobile apps related to making, buying, and eating food. But you always felt there
could be a better place to share and discover food other than Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest or any
existing recipe platform.

Well, we couldn’t agree more.

We’ve spent the past year applying everything about social networking to food itself.
- Creating a profile for 10,000+ ingredients of this world (say Penne Pasta)
- Tracking the gazillion connections between ingredients (say Penne Chicken Pesto)
- Enabling anyone to share, search, and track food like never before (Penne matches 251 ingredients,
was tagged in 2,570 dishes, has 11 brands selling and more...)
We’re two months away from launch with 4 developers in Shanghai and 8 of us here in San Francisco.
With the time difference, the complexity of the app, we’re looking for an experienced data manager
who takes up this vital role to lead our metadata of food ingredients and dishes.
