Our TAM Expansion team aims to grow our global footprint by launching our core products in different markets and expanding our offerings through multiple brands and verticals. We are a globally-distributed team working together on 7+ brands in 15+ countries. There are lots of exciting projects on the go, so if you are passionate about taking on challenges like this, join us!

The Team

We are a close-knit group of engineers of different stripes and background - frontend, backend, full-stack, and mobile. As a team, we have a track record in successfully bootstrapping new ventures in several countries. Once established at the market, we grow our brands and continuously iterate towards a better customer experience. That requires us to build new frontend and backend capabilities on top an build new functionality into the HelloTech system.

We are looking for developers who are excited by great code that scales well. As a member of our Berlin team, you’ll team up with ambitious, geeky, and experienced engineers who have been solving problems in this space for quite some time, and have turned HelloFresh into the #1 meal delivery service in the world.

The “learning never stops” here at HelloFresh. We expect you to learn every day, both through your work and beyond. We support you with ambitious learning OKRs, and subsequently through dedicated self-development time and learning budget.

If you value speed and agility and believe in a data-driven development space, this is the place for you. The ideal candidate for this role will leverage data - test results, logs, defect rates - to ruthlessly prioritize the work that needs to be done and collaborate with both local and international teams to find MVP solutions.

By the way, most of us love dogs, but we have cat enthusiasts, too. Some of us care about their plants, some about their coffee. We are multi-national and like to impress our colleagues with sweets from our home regions. Come in and tell us what you care about.
