About Choco

Choco is an ingredient ordering platform connecting restaurants and suppliers. Our mission is to build a more sustainable supply chain and eradicate food waste.

Job Description

⌛ Quick summary ⌛

The value of accurate and detailed information about market conditions increases daily. Our Market Intelligence team lies at the center of these efforts. We are looking for a technical & highly curious person, ideally with a good grasp of the gastronomy scene in Germany and/or Spain, to join the MI team and help us push ahead with our goals of building excellent data systems and market research capabilities.

Location: Berlin (our HQ) // Type of contract: Permanent

🍫 Our Kitchen 🍫

Our mission at Choco is to build a global, yet local, food system that is resourceful, fair to all people, and sustainable for the planet. In order to achieve this, our vision is to lead the world’s transition towards sustainable food systems.

This mission won’t be easy and will have to be divided into smaller objectives. Our first step towards realizing this mission is our food-supply ordering platform connecting restaurants and suppliers, simplifying the way food is traded between them.

In challenging market conditions, the importance of adopting new, useful tech has increased substantially for restaurants and vendors alike. Thanks to our investors (COATUE, Bessemer Venture Partners, Atlantic Labs and others), we have the means to support our ambition. Our Series A(s) had great timing and present us now with a unique opportunity and privilege to develop valuable tools for the gastronomy industry of a post-pandemic world.

🥨 Your menu: Market Intelligence 🥨

Remove uncertainty: Decision making without good information is prone to error. You will reduce uncertainty for Choco as a company by creating deep insight into our markets and the customers we wish to attract - no matter if restaurants in Miami, suppliers in Lyon or breweries in Munich.

Embracing depth: Everything we do has to scale - but in market intelligence, scale also has to come with an increased understanding of the individual actors. From how many restaurants are in Rome to the chef’s favorite dish - your systems will generate the answer.

Refine your technical expertise: You will be building complex technical solutions that the entire company will rely on. You are guaranteed to learn a great deal about systems thinking, data engineering and process optimization.

Creatively generate new solutions for data problems: There is no real blueprint for the moves we are making. To find answers to the difficult questions we face, you will be forced to innovate and push the flexibility of your technical imagination.
🍳 The tools we give you to succeed 🍳

On a personal level: You will find yourself in an environment that demands excellence, creativity and teamwork. You will be provided with unparalleled access to cutting edge tools, proximity to crucial stakeholders and freedom to innovate in order to deliver outstanding results.

On a team level: You will enjoy an enviable position. At once a core member of the Market Intelligence team within Global Operations while also holding an important role in the Data/Infrastructure set-up, you will occupy a space at the geographic center of Choco. Data flows through us, it is our currency and we pride ourselves on spending it wisely.  

On a company level: Choco is a rocketship that has already voyaged far and wide in a short time. We are active in around a half-dozen countries across multiple continents. Chocorians (i.e. our team 😉) are devoted to supporting one another as we grow and push ourselves to higher heights. Resilience, focus and dedication to your teammates will be asked of you. But in return, you will be given an environment where an entrepreneurial spirit and a desire to perfect systems can thrive.   

🍋 The ingredients you bring to the table 🍋

Technical prowess. You are proficient in Python in a wide range of applications. You have engineered data systems at scale, plugging in to different sources and utilizing an array of automations. You enjoy building scripts that run efficiently for hours as much as breaking down websites to find the most scalable approach to acquiring information.

A desire to develop research expertise of national food ecosystems. Ideally, you arrive at Choco with a solid sense for the gastronomy industry in Germany and/or Spain, along with the language skills to conduct rigorous research into local scenes.  

An overwhelming curiosity. You enjoy building data processes AND you are keen to understand how those around you participate in food ecosystems. You are probably then a curious person, that’s good. However, to truly excel in this role, you should be unfamiliar with the frontier of your own curiosity and derive your motivation from figuring out how things have been done and then experimenting until such things work as they should. This attitude is the difference between excellence and merely good enough. You will be expected to embody it, day-in, day-out.
