Job description
FELFEL's technology team has built the heart of FELFEL's product and is responsible for the company's success as a leading European foodtech company.

As a team member of the technology team, you will work very directly with our other teams (product, growth, sales, support, etc.) to improve the experience for our end-customers eating at work every day, as well as for our internal users of our technology.

The team of seven developers consists of Front-End Developers, Back-End Developers, Data Scientists, and a Mobile Developer.


Develop infrastructure for our forecasting models, thereby working very closely with our analytics team to ensure that they can deploy models to predict what our customers will eat based on historical data and other variables

Develop tools for our business analyst and four food scouts to perform daily management of stocking decisions and optimize products and menus based on customer demand

Create engaging tools and hacks to engage our customers and help them with their production selection decisions (promotions or simply fun tools to make their life 'better') together with our mobile and UI-focused team members


Exciting backend challenges to solve with lots of ownership

Great place to work: we are a family business with strong values & beliefs - a great, warm-hearted team is waiting for you

International Start-up team culture – we are one of the fastest growing European FoodTech companies

Great office in Zürich and Lausanne (you will be based in Zürich)

Food, lots and lots of the very best food

Relocation support if you are based outside of Switzerland. We know that moving can be a challenge in terms of housing & documentation – we will do our best to make it as smooth as possible

Skills & requirements
Experienced backend software developer with broad backend programming skills in Python and you are able to build production-ready software that integrates with the work done by our data scientists. You will also shape the whole architecture of services and data stores that you will eventually own

You understand distributed systems (microservice) architecture and APIs

Basic experience and genuine interest in data analytics/ETL and/or Machine Learning a must. You would like to grow in those areas as well

You possess a degree in Computer Science or related fields

In case you enjoy building UI’s for internal usage, there will be possibilities to do so (but it won’t be your focus)

You thrive in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts

We like to learn new, fail fast and explore new territories - so do you

Your Attitude: ‘The Answer is Yes’

The Company Language is English - you are fluent in written and spoken English. If you speak German and/or French - even better

Some kind of sensitivity for good food would be great :)

You never smell like cigarettes and don’t smoke during the day: FELFEL is about healthy living
