Backend Developer (m/f/d)

Permanent employee, Full-time · Gate Garching

About us
The idea for Delicious Data was born when we had a late lunch at our cafeteria and there was still plenty of food available. That was the moment when we started to think about how kitchens plan their menus and numbers of meals. In Germany alone, restaurants and other food service businesses throw away roughly 2 million tons of food every year. The main reason for this problem is overproduction due to uncertain guest demand. Our software solves this issue by precisely predicting the number of meals needed, based on people’s behaviour and external data such as the weather. Currently we are focussing on the DACH region and plan to serve customers in other European countries in 2020. Our successful fundraising activities allow us to start building a team that joins our mission of reducing global food waste!
