About HelloFresh:

At HelloFresh, we want to change the way people eat. Over the past 8 years we've seen this mission spread around the world and beyond our wildest dreams. Now, we are the leading global company in the expanding online recipe kit delivery market. So, how did we do it? Our weekly recipe boxes full of exciting recipes and lovingly sourced, fresh ingredients have blossomed into a community of encouraged, energized home cooks that expands across the globe. We are one of the fastest growing meal kit businesses and are active and growing in 10+ different countries across 3 continents. Our growth trajectory and expansion has been phenomenal and we have launched facilities across Canada and have recently added Chefs Plate to our team!

About the team: 

We are a close-knit group of engineers of different stripes - developers, testers, and product owners - who are working together to solve interesting e-commerce and supply chain problems around how people eat. Sometimes, this involves experimenting  to improve the user journey and making it easier for our customers to buy amazing food. Sometimes, this means creating stable software solutions that keep our distribution centers running. 

About the role: 

We are looking for an Engineering Manager to help architect and implement solutions, lead developers, and write beautiful code. You will strive to achieve company goals and collaborate with local and international teams to find the best solution possible. As a member of our North America team, you’ll work with highly-skilled 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!

You will: 

  • Take ownership of the architecture, design, development, deployment, and operations of the applications that you develop
  • Lead a small team of engineers (4-7) as a line manager: supervising day-to-day technical tasks, as well as mentoring/growing engineering skill set within your team
  • Create and execute programs to help individual career progressions
  • Be an active, solution-oriented leader & member of autonomous, cross-functional agile teams collaborating with Product Owners, Frontend and Backend Engineers, Designers, and Business Intelligence teams 
  • Develop an in-depth understanding of HelloFresh’s core product and architecture

You have:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Engineering, or, equivalent
  • 6+ years of experience on a agile software development team, preferably in a lead or senior role for at least 2+ years
  • Hands-on experience in developing and releasing microservices, distributed system, and/or large-scale solutions
  • 4+ years experience in a current service-oriented programming language, such as Golang (preferred), Java, Python, or NodeJS
  • 2+ years of experience with relational databases (e.g. MySQL, PostgreSQL) and NoSQL technologies (e.g. MongoDB), with demonstrable ability to write and execute effective queries

Why you'll love this job:

  • You’ll have the chance to push your ideas from inception to execution without being held back by bureaucracy.
  • We’re a start-up within a start-up. We’re nimble but we have the institutional knowledge and the global resources
  • Competitive salary and company benefits
  • 75% discount on HelloFresh boxes
  • Working with a fun, energetic and supportive team

To ensure the health and safety of our employees during COVID-19, our HQ employees are currently working remotely! When we return to the office, you’ll love:

  • Our test kitchen, where our recipes are tested on-site, so there are delicious meals constantly flowing!
  • Our newly renovated employee lounge, decked out with a movie projector, comfy couches, board games, a ping pong table, and local craft beer on tap!
