And our hospitality solutions for restaurants help them stay filled with happy customers. We’ve been transforming dining reservations since 1998, and we’re more excited than ever about the services we’re building for diners and restaurants.

We build products that people love. 

The technology team at OpenTable houses diverse minds full of divergent ideas, and we like it that way. We have the autonomy and luxury to think on our own, experiment, and be challenged. With the excitement and energy of a startup, we’re connected by our desire to continuously try things in new ways and see what works, but we’re fortunate to be able to do it within the structure and direction of a more established company. We work in a fast-paced, agile environment, with rapid deployments. We don’t support micromanagement, instead, we empower our teams to be self-motivated. If you’re excited by the opportunity to regularly challenge engineering processes, come build with us.

Product

OpenTable’s technology helps people on both sides of the dining-out equation, and as the tenured and behemoth brand in our space, we know the importance of focusing our efforts on the most important thing to both audiences—our products. We are passionate about moving fast and building quality products, which is why we maintain a really strong testing culture. While actionable data informs what we build, we always balance that with the importance of great design. For this reason, Design is part of the Product Team. Failing is okay here, in fact, we embrace it. So whether you’re seasoned or new to product management, we can guarantee that this is a place where you can learn and grow.

Design

The Design Team at OpenTable is made up of four smaller teams that coexist as an extended family. Under one colorful umbrella, we house the Product Design, UX Design, User Research, and Brand teams. While work experience is clearly important, we are firm believers that our team is made great by the creative minds and personalities that inhabit it, not the sum total of their working past. In order to keep our four extensions connected, we all come together for weekly meetings to share news and progress, add visibility, and pool our creative thinking for each other’s projects. We’re open thinkers, which is a necessity, because the product we work on is all about potential and helping restaurants flourish to reach theirs. We aspire to help the small businesses that are often forgotten by technology - from a chef who dreams of opening their first place to the neighborhood gem that brings character to their street. Designers can have real impact at a company like this, and while there’s great emphasis on teamwork, there’s also real room to own something that’s yours.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at OpenTable.

    Interview

    This was definitely my favourite interview ever!
    The office is such a cool space, everyone was so friendly and welcoming.
    I sat down with the two supervisors in a small room, they introduced themselves, told me about the time they had spent in the company and how they have progressed. I was then played a recording and was asked to comment on it on how I would have handled that particular situation.
    We then progressed onto the more typical interview questions which turned more into a nice chat with two nice people.
    I was given a good amount of room to talk and received a good amount of information about the company and what is expected.
    I left feeling happy with how it went but also happy that I’d had such a pleasant interview experience.
