Job Summary

Our partner's final goal is to make the market as efficient as possible, in the meantime reducing costs for the final consumer, reducing waste, and lowering carbon emissions.

Our partner's tech team is composed of very passionate engineers, who strive to create a scalable and user-friendly platform. They all come from strong academic backgrounds (some of them have carried out research at Oxford, Cambridge, and Berkeley) and have expertise in complementary fields, to develop the company as a well-rounded product.

Our partner asked their colleagues to describe 3 things they like most about working at the company – the most recurrent aspects were:

  1. the work being participatory and applied, with a healthy culture of collaboration and orientation towards problem-solving;

  3. being able to work on the technology of great impact for the future, flexibly.

Our partner is looking to expand their team by bringing new experienced and self-driven specialists to build the company's forecasting platform together with them.

They value an engineering, hands-on spirit, above anything else. They offer continuous opportunities for building quality software in the dynamic environment fostered by the team.

They are flexible with the working schedule & also with working remotely. Currently, an ultra-modern office in Bucharest, in one of the Globalworth buildings is being specially set up for the company and will be available from August 2022.
