Senior back-end Developer

Zurich, Switzerland Full-time


FELFEL Zürich Office

Start: As soon as possible

FELFEL changes the way we eat at work by offering great fresh food 24x7 at very reasonable prices, steps away from your desk. We place intelligent fridges in offices (‘the FELFEL’) and stock them with fresh meals from local chefs. Employees can grab an innovative salad, warming soup, or tasty menu and get charged directly to their credit card. We operate FELFEL fridges all across Switzerland and are expanding every week. FELFEL is also a food tech company and is currently a team of 40 in Zurich and Lausanne, backed by a group of Zurich, London, and Boston-based investors. See more at or via Social Media.

In order to give our customers the best FELFEL experience possible, we rely on a lot of tech:

  • Our connected fridge running on Android
  • Internal and customer facing web applications (React, Vue.js)
  • Neural algorithms that solve complex forecasting and stocking problems
  • A backbone of microservices in the cloud (Python, Javascript)
  • Mobile applications in our warehouse (React Native)
  • Custom supply chain and a sophisticated logistics system that guides our operators in the cooling cell
  • ... and much more!

For you, this means a wide range of systems, processes and technologies to master and own! You will solve problems from front to end, using the right tools and tech to get the job done, in collaboration with a team of software engineers, mobile developers and data scientists. The focus of your role will be to ensure that our backend systems can handle our growing business needs - we expect to expand our customer basis by a whopping 100% in 2018 alone!

  • 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’

  • Authentic Love & Passion for good food
  • You never smell like cigarettes and don’t smoke during the day: FELFEL is about healthy living.


  • Exciting tech problems to solve with lots of ownership across a broad spectrum
  • International Start-up team culture – we won the Swiss Economic Award in 2017 and are one of the fastest growing FoodTech companies
  • Great office in Zürich and Lausanne (you will be based in Zürich)
  • Food, lots and lots of the very best food
  • We everyday cook lunch in small teams
