Do you want to work at an impact startup within food data, health and sustainability?

FoodFacts is looking for a tech star to join them as CTO


FoodFacts is on a mission to power the revolution towards a better food system by making food data intelligent, accessible and actionable to the whole food ecosystem.

Change in the food sector is absolutely necessary: food is the no.1 cause of biodiversity loss, responsible for up to one third of our CO2 emissions, for ¾ of deforestation and for the increase in poor health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease.


Who are we?

FoodFacts was founded in 2020 and offers intelligent food data for B2B companies to accelerate the shift to a healthier and more sustainable food system. We create intelligent food data by operating an AWS cloud platform which deeply analyses standard food product data and draws on multiple data sources to create actionable data throughout the food system.

Our SaaS service makes it easy to analyse and search food data and work with health and sustainability-related data points.

FoodFacts is now in a growth phase, with a clear product - market fit and several B2B customers. We are looking for a tech star who wants to contribute to our mission and help take our product and tech solution to the next level.


What is the role?

As FoodFacts CTO, you will “own” our technology platform and be a key member of the company management team. You will be responsible for all aspects of the technical capabilities and deliver on the product roadmap, leading a team of resources both offshore and in Sweden, while implementing instrumental components of the system yourself.

You will make strategic technology choices and be a key advisor to the CEO in investment decisions.

You will recruit and manage other tech team members and you will drive the company’s vision and mission together with the rest of the management team.


Who are you?

You are a senior and technically advanced full stack developer, with at least 5-8 years’ experience, who still writes code on a daily basis and is comfortable building large systems. You have a strategic edge and are always curious about how to incorporate new technologies in the solutions you build.

You like working in teams and driving change, you have led tech teams before and are comfortable making recruitments.

You might already have had a CTO role previously or you are ready to take this next step in your career. As a person, we imagine you are self-driven, organised, pragmatic in your approach and collaborative.

And, last but not least, you want to work in an impact-driven company and believe that conscious consumption and better food choices could make a real impact. And you want to be part of our revolution.


We are currently working with the following technologies:

  • AWS

  • React

  • Node.js

  • GraphQL

  • Typescript

  • Python

  • MySql


We believe the following could help you in this role but are not mandatory:

  • Experience with data management solutions / SaaS solutions

  • Interest in food, sustainability and health

  • Have worked in a start-up environment before


What can we offer?

  • The opportunity to join an impact start-up in an exciting growth phase

  • Close collaboration and learning with a passionate and diverse team of colleagues

  • The possibility to steer and lead the tech developments of the company


Location: We are based in Stockholm (currently located at Norrsken House). We have a flexible work policy (work remotely or at the office, you choose). You will be asked to come to Stockholm from time to time for meetings.

Type of position: full-time

Compensation: fixed salary, stock options, pension benefits



We look forward to hearing from you!
