Imperfect produce delivered from farm to table in LatAm
We are a Mexican startup that is changing the food system in LATAM with the goal of reducing food waste in the region. We are growing and we would like you to be part of this new stage as the leader of our current tech team to improve the product. As the Head of Tech at Perfekto, you will help the company to offer a better user experience and improve the overall technological process.
We are experiencing important growth at Perfekto. We are interested in making a positive impact in our community. We are constantly searching for someone to be part of early culture building. We look for early team members to contribute with fresh ideas to improve together.
To be successful in this role, you need:
Some nice-to-have qualities that will further help you:
We are a small but fast-growing passionate team that loves sharing ideas, helping each other and learning together. Every voice matters, let us know your ideas and let’s tackle them together. We are still building our culture and we would like you to help us shape it as we grow.
We avoid waste at all costs. Our fight against waste is not just limited to food. Being #nowaste means not wasting the valuable resources we have such as time, trust, money and others.
We do not believe in standards that limit diversity or creativity. We create equal opportunities and celebrate diversity every day. To change the world, you have to take risks and do things differently.
Perfekto is written with K, because perfection does not exist.
Dreaming is not enough to change the world. We have to lead by example instead of waiting for someone else. That is why we take action and responsibility in our day-to-day with our purpose as the main motivator.
Real change is not achieved individually. We need a strong community to create a better future that is a win-win for everyone. That is why we open new opportunities for our suppliers and offer the best possible experience to our customers, inspiring confidence and facilitating the change of habits.
Want to solve burning problems, work at a fast-growing startup and ensure your work helps the greater good? 💚 We are looking for tech talent - but not just any tech talent. At Perfekto we want the ones who don't fit the norm. The ones who are Perfekto with 'k' not with 'c' - because we all know imperfection makes true perfection. The ones with an ambition to use tech for good and solve pressing issues like our broken food system. 🌟
More than 1/3 of all food is wasted. That's 1.3 billion tons of food per year - a number set to increase more than double by 2050, while also food demand will increase with our growing population. The carbon footprint of food waste is greater than that of the airline industry.
At Perfekto, we want to help reduce food waste and create a sustainable food system in Latin America. We are changing how people do groceries offering a grocery subscription box consisting of food items that would otherwise be wasted for not 'fitting' industry standards (cosmetic imperfections, short shelf-life, or other inefficiencies).
