Work at Avocando

We don't do agency work - we are a product-driven company. At Avocando, we build new, forward-thinking grocery shopping experiences that already reach 20 million consumers.

Our well-crafted products enable consumers to purchase groceries from their favourite online retailers, whenever and wherever they come across tasty recipes and food content. Avocando is integrated with recipe sites (such as Chefkoch), brand content and smart home apps, and working with some of the world’s biggest brands and retailers.

We do customer research, develop and iterate the entire product experience and then roll-out our products through our large partner and publisher network to millions of consumers all over Europe.

Be part of our journey!

You will add new partners and integrations to our network, making you a part of our push to roll-out Avocando across Europe.

About our team

We are a driven, pragmatic team with a strong development background and sales skills. We believe in transparency to keep all of us on the same page - from business decisions to code reviews. And we like clever, scalable solutions and automating repetitive processes - that’s what enables us to roll-out Avocando internationally without big overhead.

We have a very positive, funny and lighthearted atmosphere - in our day-to-day, and outside the office, during team lunches, video game nights, Smoothie Thursdays and events like laser tag and barbecuing.

We plan to double our team in 2017 - and look forward to meeting you!
