Start: As soon as possible

Location: Zürich, 100%


FELFEL is a Start-up based in Zürich, Switzerland. The company has revolutionized how people eat at work with its intelligent technology or ‘the FELFEL fridge’. The company is among the fastest growing start-ups in Switzerland with over 50 employees.

FELFEL's technology team, of 7 engineers, has built the heart of FELFEL's product and is responsible for the company's success as a leading European foodtech company. The team of seven developers consists of Front-End Developers, Back-End Developers, Data Scientists, and a Mobile Developer.

As a team member of the technology team, you will work very directly with our founders, the CTO, our other teams (product, growth, sales, support, etc.) to improve the experience for our end-customers eating at work every day, as well as for our internal users of our technology.


  • Lots of good (like really good ;)) food: just steps away from your desk – we make all food dreams come true…
  • Modern way of working: we use the latest technologies and offer lots time flexibility to individual team members (it matters ‘what’ you do not ‘when’ in the day).
  • Beautiful office in Zürich, Switzerland: a large open space on the top floor with lots of room to hide or room to socialize also with other team members. And of course, there is free lunch every day at our long, wooden table. P.s. there is a Lausanne office too where you can escape every now and then if you like…
  • International start-up atmosphere: the company language is English – our team is very diversified and consists of over 10 nationalities.
  • Work with direct impact: Exciting backend challenges to solve that will have very direct impact on our product.
  • Very little red tape. If you like to get things done using the latest in tech rather than talking about it, you'll feel right at home. You work directly with the CTO and other decision makers in the team (very little hierarchy).
  • Great place to work: we are a family business with strong values & beliefs - a great, warm-hearted team is waiting for you
  • Relocation support if you are based outside of Switzerland. We know that moving can be a challenge in terms of housing & documentation – we will do our best to make it as smooth as possible
  • Great team: we are very selective – and only hire the best chess players, cooks or video gamers ;)


  • Develop infrastructure for our forecasting models, thereby working very closely with our analytics team to ensure that they can deploy models to predict what our customers will eat based on historical data and other variables
  • Develop tools for our business analyst and four food scouts to perform daily management of stocking decisions and optimize products and menus based on customer demand
  • Create engaging tools and hacks to engage our customers and help them with their production selection decisions (promotions or simply fun tools to make their life 'better') together with our mobile and UI-focused team members


  • Python is your language: Experienced backend software developer with broad back-end programming skills in Python (Python is really a MUST!) and you are able to build production-ready software that integrates with the work done by our data scientists. You will also shape the whole architecture of services and data stores that you will eventually own
  • The ideal degree: Computer Science or related field
  • Data interest: Basic experience and genuine interest in data analytics/ETL and/or Machine Learning a must. You would like to grow in those areas as well
  • Microservices: You understand distributed systems (microservice) architecture and APIs
  • A little communication skills would be great: You thrive in a collaborative environment involving different stakeholders and subject matter experts
  • Curiosity is key: We like to learn new, fail fast and explore new territories - so do you. The answer is ‘yes’
  • In case you are interested: In case you enjoy building UI’s for internal usage, there will be possibilities to do so (but it won’t be your focus)
  • Some kind of sensitivity for good food (hey, we are very open..) would be great :)
  • You never smell like cigarettes and don’t smoke during the day: FELFEL is about healthy living


Interested? Then please send your CV to including a short motivation letter why you are the person who should take on this role.

Please make sure to mention the job title ' PYTHON BACK-END ENGINEER WITH INTEREST IN DATA’ in the subject line!
