Feastfox, backed by some of Silicon Valley’s top venture-capital investors, creates products that enable users to navigate thousands of restaurants and find one that perfectly matches the mood and the moment. The tech team consists of just a handful of engineers, but are responsible for the development of the core product of the company. It is an important company focus that we only hire people who are really great at what they are doing, but this is especially true for the engineers. Therefore we proudly have software developers who are capable of creating magic and are fully motivated in doing that. Feastfox’s engine analyses millions of restaurant attributes and matches them to personal preferences stored in the user’s profile. It then filters these matches through the type of dining experience that the user seeks -- date night, business lunch, family brunch -- and provides recommendations on where to go. Feastfox’s diners get what they want - every time. Our venture was founded at Stanford University by entrepreneurs with strong ties for the restaurant industry. Two of Feastfox’s founders worked on the strategy team at e-commerce giant Groupon, Inc. Our advisory board members include world-class academics, well-known entrepreneurs and industry experts including a former OpenTable executive. In addition to Seattle and Budapest, Feastfox also has an office in Cape Town, South Africa.
