Who we are
If you are looking to have an impact on the world, then read carefully because at Choco, we are moving mountains to transition the world’s food systems to become more sustainable. The food industry is an industry with essential problems, especially in food-supply-chain. We leverage technology to build the digital platform on which the global food trade will operate. We have the potential to reduce food prices, decrease food waste by 30%.
In 2018 we entered the market with our chat-based ordering app and had drastically changed the way businesses work and order with their suppliers. Our founders have helped build companies such as Zalando (IPO’d), Lazada (sold to Alibaba) and Foodora (sold to DeliveryHero). We recently raised one of the largest Series A funding rounds in European history.
Technology is at the core of our work. We are product-minded builders, architects, coders, bug-hunters and designers. We deliver the needed change via our mobile and web apps using cutting-edge tools, modern engineering practices and always keeping software quality on our radar. Of course, it’s not only about working with top-notch tools but keep hiring excellent engineers too.
Join us in leading the world’s transition to sustainable food systems.

You will take part in building a platform that enables tech teams to autonomously develop, test, deploy and operate their stack in a secure and reliable way. We want you to be the all-seeing-eye of our entire infrastructure, keep our systems healthy, speed up product development and increase the quality of our services. Your contribution will be not only directly impacting Choco but even the users of our products themselves.
In the first 3 months you will have the space, support and mentoring to understand our product, the infrastructure behind it and obtain any missing information or skill that’s needed for you to effectively contribute later.
In 3 to 6 months you will be fully operational, independent, take stories on your own and run with them. You will dig deeper to understand the core of complex issues and provide reliable solutions that will stand the test of time.
