About the role

Description

Want to solve burning problems, work at a fast-growing startup and ensure your work helps the greater good? ๐Ÿ’š 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 ๐ŸŒŸ.

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).
