Chief Technology Officer

Food portrays the story of mankind. What we eat, how we eat and why we eat it is a story, a story that every food and cuisine has. Sizzle is an online soul-food platform bringing food and stories from around the globe, with a vision of becoming a food incubator housing the best and most innovative new food brands. We work with home-chefs and small food businesses who cook their food with love, offering them services like kitchen infrastructure, procurement and preparation support, marketing, sales and delivery to make the food landscape of Stockholm reflect it’s vibrant society. Sizzle is an effort to encourage and support food entrepreneurs with a focus on people from underrepresented communities. We aim to be a genuine expression of collaboration and love for food, a better and conscious social sustainability company that uses the online food delivery platform to communicate its values. 


Today our platform consists of a front-end written in React and Java on the back-end leveraging microservices. All of it runs on Amazon Web Services for now. This is the customer facing platform where they can browse through our food business partners offerings, as well as meals made in our own kitchens, Sizzle meals. Our value proposition, through showing the stories of our chefs on top of the food, is the unique user experience that we offer our customers. To do this, we need a world class tech platform and infrastructure.

Sizzle is a start-up. We want to become a food ecosystem that offers a variety of services to food entrepreneurs and engages in multiple domains like kitchen sharing and management systems and indoor farming. As a CTO you will, together with our project leads, drive our innovations forward with the tech structure. This means that you would either be making ideas work or coming up with ideas for the company to pursue based on tech capabilities. 

What we need:

  • An original thinker

  • With interest and passion for automating processes, both through pure software solutions and a combination of software and hardware

  • With an interest in AI and using data mining techniques to crunch data

  • A doer with the ability to work independently and lead a team

You should have experience as a full-stack web developer with skills within the following areas:

  • Javascript and React/React Native 

  • Database technologies like postgreSQL or any other SQL

  • Java or other object oriented languages 

  • node.js, Ruby, PHP, python (any of these are a plus)

  • AWS (not necessary, simply a plus)

Special focus will be on your ability to strategize over what technologies are needed, your ability to get things done, your faith in our concept and finally ability to lead our tech team. We are looking for someone who can carry the role as CTO (working hours are flexible, depending on your ability to reach targets). As we are in an initial phase, we cannot offer remuneration, instead, the returns will be in the form of equity. There is a lot more we can discuss. We don’t think a CTO should have to fill in an application. If you fit the bill, check us out on and and let us know!

Working at

Sizzle is a collective of independent food businesses and dark kitchens that has social inclusion at it's heart. The idea for our marketplace grew from observing women selling food that you couldn't find anywhere else on Facebook Marketplace. We then saw how the same mechanism that led to the creation of taxi medallions in New York, was leading to high prices in Sthlm that block truly talented people from doing what they love - cooking food. We want to disrupt the european food & beverage industry's tendency to favour the big and maintain the status quo where abstract or generic brands sell food, but you don't even know who made it. As Swedes, 1st and 2nd generation immigrants, former bike messengers, and sons and daughters to mothers who have worked hard to give us opportunities, we understand that the forces that rule this world, and how greed and a deeply flawed view on capitalism can become the death by thousand cuts that destroys an organization and society. We are builders that come in all forms and shapes as engineers, operations specialists, computer scientists, and artists. Our organization spans Kitchens, Logistics,, our Chefs, Salesmen and marketers, and again more chefs. We are communicators that tell the stories of our chefs and what how home chefs have to be creative in order to innovate. Our vision is to spearhead the dark kitchen movement in Scandinavia and we will do it with independent food businesses and homechefs instead of established brands. Join us now
