Over the past 10 years, we've seen this mission spread around the world and beyond our wildest dreams. Now, we are a global food solutions group and the world's leading meal kit company, active in 17 countries across 3 continents. So, how did we do it? Our weekly boxes full of exciting recipes and fresh ingredients have blossomed into a community of customers looking for delicious, healthy and sustainable options. The HelloFresh Group now includes our core brand, HelloFresh, as well as: GreenChef, EveryPlate, Chef's Plate, Factor, and Youfoodz.

The role and the team

HelloFresh has expanded rapidly as a technology organization going from just over one hundred engineers to almost one thousand engineers in the last few years. As part of scaling as an engineering team, we’ve created a Foundations Alliance to be responsible for unleashing developer productivity across the company.

Our team builds the tools, services, systems, and infrastructure that teams all over the company (and in turn, all HelloFresh customers) use on a day-to-day basis. We are building platforms (cloud, mobile, design systems) for engineers to be able to quickly innovate while providing operational safety, security, and best practices out of the box. Come join us if you’re passionate about building developer productivity tools and services that will change the way people eat, forever.

Above all, we are seeking people who are passionate about delivering value for internal customers, and who will make HelloFresh better.

  • Guide and educate the engineering organization about operations and reliability
  • Remove toil in infrastructure through automation
