Talent Acquisition Manager – Tech // HelloFresh

February 12, 2018

At HelloFresh, we want to change the way people eat. Over the past 5 years we’ve seen this mission spread beyond our wildest dreams. So, how did we do it? Our weekly recipe boxes full of exciting recipes and lovingly sourced, fresh ingredients have blossomed into a community of inspired, energised home cooks that expands across the globe. Now we’re the fastest growing company in Europe, active and growing in 9 different countries across 3 continents.

Our story started in Berlin. As Europe’s tech hub, and the home of our global headquarters, it’s a dynamic, progressive environment where innovation is nurtured and promoted. Since we started, we’ve worked exceptionally hard and we’ve received almost US$ 300 million in investment which together have allowed us to create an award winning product.

As a member of the HelloFresh Talent Acquisition team you’ll be exposed to a lean, fast-paced, and data-driven recruitment function. We’re scaling extremely rapidly and ensure that we have the people we need to continue building a fresh food global champion!
