Choco provides a centralized platform connecting restaurants and suppliers. The result is better communication, simplified logistics, and - here comes the big one - less food waste. Our aim is to contribute to a transparent, sustainable and waste-free global food chain by 2030.
With technology at the core of our work, our engineers are driven by quality. Our chat-based ordering app has already changed the game for thousands of restaurants and suppliers across the globe, but there is much more work to be done. And that’s where we need your help. If you’re looking to be at the intersection of purpose and innovation, we’d love to hear from you.
Meet your team
As Lead observability engineer you will work as specialist in the cloud (DevOps) platform team delivering services to and coaching cross-functional autonomous teams (QA, Android, iOS, frontend, backend) that are building the product features. The platform team has 3 teams (Data platform, Cloud platform and product Platform).
As a culture-first company, we believe in the power of in-person collaboration. We look forward to working with you from our office in Berlin.
What you will do
Here at Choco, we like to use the space shuttle as a metaphor for our engineering work. Now, you will join and help us bring the shuttle to the moon. You will take part in building a platform that enables tech teams to autonomously develop, test, deploy and operate their stack in a secure and reliable way. We want you to be the all-seeing-eye of our entire infrastructure, keep our systems healthy, speed up product development and increase the quality of our services. Your contribution will be not only directly impacting Choco but even the users of our products themselves.
In the first 3 months you will have the space, support and mentoring to understand our product, the infrastructure behind it and obtain any missing information or skill that’s needed for you to effectively contribute later.
In 3 to 6 months you will be fully operational, independent, take stories on your own and run with them. You will dig deeper to understand the core of complex issues and provide reliable solutions that will stand the test of time.
Over time you will contribute to disaster recovery tooling, set up proper monitoring / alerting and incident management, make our systems more secure and automate wherever possible.
