  • Who we are 

    Choco is one of the fastest-growing European startups. The company was founded in March 2018 by entrepreneurs who helped start companies such as Zalando (IPO), Lazada (sold to Alibaba) and Foodora (IPO). 

    We are a B2B platform connecting food suppliers and buyers on a global scale. While our technology is reshaping one of the oldest and most valuable industries on the planet - the food supply chain, we are obsessed with our mission to eradicate global food waste. 

    To do this, we have raised one of the largest Series A funding rounds in European history. We are looking for outstandingly driven individuals, who are able to assume extreme ownership and responsibility in shaping our global expansion. 

    What you will do

    We are looking for a Chief of Staff that will work directly with our CEO on all strategic and tactical matters driving the company forward. This role requires an exceptional leader - one who knows how to lead from principle and respect-based influence rather than authority - and who brings a great deal of wisdom, judgment and the ability to grasp complex organizational concepts. 

    Ultimately, the role exists to achieve leverage for the CEO by creating and leading thoughtful, lightweight, highly-efficient discussions and processes across a broad spectrum of situations (e.g. planning, technical development, employees, and stakeholder management), driving needed actions through the team and communicating efficiently to align people and teams. 

    In this highly visible role, it is equally important that this person is a strong individual contributor as much as a team player. The Chief of Staff must be able to work collaboratively with cross functional departments to guide project execution, remove obstacles, push to completion, and ensure initiatives meet committed timelines. This is a strategic role that requires a combination of character, judgment and people skills.

    Beyond deep understanding of how the company works, most importantly the Chief of Staff must possess a deep understanding of how Choco operates as a member and extension of the leadership team.

    This includes:

    • Carry the Choco culture as an extension of the CEO.

    • Drive operational and planning processes to completion in partnership with the whole leadership team.

    • Own ad-hoc projects small to large: this could include implementation of new tactical initiatives, research and providing intelligence, expansion explorations, strategic partnerships, and more.

    • Review and potentially prepare internal and external communications: reports, speeches or presentations.

    • Monitor information flow, act as a gatekeeper, ensure the CEO’s involvement in a project or decision-making process at the right moment.

    • Manage team meetings, including planning, agenda, notes and execution of action items. Distill discussions and thoughts into strategic plans. Facilitate preparation for internal and external meetings.

    • Develop and execute impactful long term strategy for the company

    • Be involved in all top-level decisions, act as a sounding board to the CEO and Exec leadership for new ideas and initiatives, and prioritize and lead projects.

    What You'll Need

    • Strong interpersonal skills and proven ability to work seamlessly with a variety of personalities and functional disciplines. Ability to build relationships with cross-functional colleagues.

    • Exceptional and demonstrated business and product judgment. In spite of this role being administrative in nature, the CoS needs to have strong independent product and business judgment, i.e. be "right a lot" when it comes to making calls in these domains.

    • Strong operator. We need a leader who is great at creating structure, organization and (lightweight) process and getting everyone aligned within them. Strong prioritization skills and discipline are critical.

    • Has a 6th sense for identifying important strategic priorities to direct CEO focus on

    • Exhibits optimistic leadership and resilience. The CoS must look around at the sea of execution challenges and see them as a great puzzle to be solved. We should never hear this person complain or commiserate or talk about how everything is "broken;" rather, he/she must seek out problems and solve them, continually striving to make Choco better, stronger, faster. He/she must also be naturally enthusiastic to the point that they infect others, which ups everyone's game. Must have a bias for action and accountability.

    • Customer Obsessed. This person must be motivated by doing the right thing for our customers, externally and internally. She/he must establish and operate from first principles rather than being an order taker. He/she will not only "take the hills," with respect to the inner workings of Choco, but also identify the hills to take, i.e. be proactive in identifying opportunities to improve the way we work, prioritize appropriately and jump in without prodding.

    • An extremely organized critical thinker - your project plans are always detailed, up to date, and digestible, and you're comfortable setting and holding people accountable to deadlines.

    • Clear Communicator. You are a clear and concise communicator with the ability to synthesize a lot of information quickly and highlight the key insights.

    • High comfort in working under pressured, time-sensitive, and rapidly evolving situations.

    • A passion to radically transition food systems to operate sustainably. Obsessed about building a global champion. 

    • Academically, given that we wish to graduate Chiefs of Staff into managerial roles, we apply the same criteria: candidates should have an undergraduate degree in business, or similar from a top institution. Advanced degrees, like an MBA, are not required, but can make a candidate more interesting. 3-5 years experience at a top-tier organisation in a highly challenging role are ideal. 

    What we offer you

    This is a unique opportunity to shape one of the fastest growing companies on the globe together with the CEO and the executive team. 

    The role is highly demanding and will reward you with an unprecedented learning curve. You will learn how to build, scale an early-stage company to market leadership. You will understand how to enable globally distributed teams of high-performing individuals to achieve success. You will understand how to create, drive and foster an extremely strong and positive culture of trust, friendship, focus and enjoyment across the globe. 

    This role is the best preparation to become part of the top-level leadership team, and we will invest in you to get there. In short, we are looking for an exceptional individual with a fanatic drive to win while never compromising on morals and culture. 

    If you are up for this challenging, then please apply. 

    The role will be based between the US and Berlin/Germany with occasional travel.

  • Kalepa is looking for Data Scientists to lead efforts at the intersection of machine learning and big data engineering in order to solve some of the biggest problems in commercial insurance.

    Data scientists at Kalepa will be turning vast amounts of structured and unstructured data from many sources (web data, geolocation, satellite imaging, etc.) into novel insights about behavior and risk. You will be working closely with a small team in designing, building, and deploying machine learning models to tackle our customers’ questions.

    Kalepa is a New York based, VC backed, startup building software to transform and disrupt commercial insurance. Nearly one trillion ($1T) dollars are spent globally each year on commercial insurance across small, medium, and large enterprises. However, the process for estimating the risk associated with a given business across various perils (e.g. fire, injury, malpractice) is still reliant on inefficient and inaccurate manual forms or outdated and sparse databases. This information asymmetry leads to a broken set of economic incentives and a poor experience for both businesses and insurers alike. By combining cutting edge data science, enterprise software, and insurance expertise, Kalepa is delivering precision underwriting at scale – empowering every commercial insurance underwriter to be as effective and efficient as possible. Kalepa is turning real-world data into a complete understanding of risk.

    Kalepa is led by a strong team with experiences from Facebook, APT (acquired by Mastercard for $600M in 2015), the Israel Defense Forces, MIT, Berkeley, and UPenn.

    About you:

    ● You want to design a flexible analytics, data science, and AI framework to transform the insurance industry

    ● You have demonstrated success in delivering analytical projects, including structuring and conducting analyses to generate business insights and recommendations

    ● You have in-depth understanding of applied machine learning algorithms and statistics

    ● You are experienced in Python and its major data science libraries, and have deployed models and algorithms in production

    ● You have a good understanding of SQL and non-SQL databases

    ● You value open, frank, and respectful communication

    ● You are a proactive and collaborative problem solver with a “can do” attitude

    ● You have a sincere interest in working at a startup and scaling with the company as we grow

    As a plus:

    • You have experience in NLP and/or computer vision

    • You have familiarity with Spark, Hadoop, or Scala

    • You have experience working with AWS tools

    What you’ll get

    ● Work with an ambitious, smart, and fun team to transform a $1T global industry

    ● Ground floor opportunity – opportunity to build the foundations for the product, team, and culture alongside the founding team

    ● Wide-ranging intellectual challenges working with large and diverse data sets, as well as with a modern technology stack

    ● Competitive compensation package with a significant equity component

    ● Full benefits package, including excellent medical, dental, and vision insurance

    ● Unlimited vacation and flexible remote work policies

    ● Continuing education credits and a healthy living / gym monthly stipend

    [IMPORTANT NOTE]: Salary ranges are for New York based employees. Compensation for remote roles will be adjusted according to the cost of living and market in the specific geography.

  • About Andela

    Marc Andresson, co-founder of the venture capital firm Andreessen Horowitz wrote: “software is eating the world.” That statement is just as true today as it was eight years ago.  Software is embedded in our day-to-day, and few industries are immune.  Peak behind the code and you will find brilliant engineers pushing the boundaries of what is possible.  

    Talk to any engineering leader and they will tell you that access to talent is their number one barrier to building software and growing their business.  Research the industry and you read about the 1 million computer-programming jobs that will go unfilled in 2020. 

    That is where Andela comes in. We help engineering leaders at companies big and small bridge that gap. We are building tools, systems and processes to connect talent, no matter where they live, with the opportunities to do great things. To date, we have identified 1,000+ software engineers from Africa and placed them as full-time, embedded members of development teams at over 200 tech companies. Along the way, we have raised $180M from Al Gore’s venture fund, Generation Partners, Google Ventures, Spark Capital, the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative and Serena Ventures.

    Legislative Development Consultant, Short term 

    Period: 1-2 months (Jan-Feb 2020)

    Avaaz is at the forefront of global anti-disinformation efforts to protect the world’s democracies from the proliferation of fake news. After a pilot project in Brazil, which saw Avaaz take down a huge Facebook disinformation network in the country, we launched an effort to protect European elections with an operation powered by big data, investigative journalism, and the strength of our network of 20 million members in the EU. The aim was to identify and debunk fake news, and to take down the biggest disinformation networks. Avaaz discovered and reported on disinformation in just seven EU countries that reached more than 750 million views in just the three months preceding elections. 

    Building on our reporting and on the broader efforts of government and civil society to highlight the dangers of disinformation, Avaaz is now preparing to push for anti-disinformation legislation at the EU level. We are seeking assistance to assess potential avenues for EU regulation, develop model legislation, prepare outreach materials, and assist Avaaz staff with advocacy strategy.

    This is a short-term consultancy, and is not intended to lead to full-time employment -- although Avaaz will always consider outsrtanding candidates for available positions.

    • An analysis of potential avenues for EU legislation on disinformation;
    • A polished model regulation, consistent with existing EU law and in conformity with EU legislative drafting practices; 

    • Outreach materials for Commissioners, MEPs, and other key stakeholders; and,
    • Condensed versions of the model.

    Depending on aptitude and interest, you may also assist Avaaz staff with developing advocacy strategies, including identifying key targets and formulating plans to win them over.

    Qualifications:

    This is a demanding role that requires remarkable talent in a wide range of areas. The ideal candidate will have a good cross-section of the following qualifications:

    • A minimum of 3 years experience of handling legislative drafting and/or legislative advocacy at the European Union;
    • Knowledge of EU law, with a special focus on the regulation of media and digital service providers;
    • Membership in good standing of a bar association (in any jurisdiction);
    • A proven record of accomplishment in developing legislation;
    • Experience working with civil society; and,
    • High-level understanding of social media platforms.

    General skills

    • Strong project and staff management skills;
    • Excellent judgement and decision-making abilities; 
    • Strong teamwork skills, comfortable in a highly collaborative team culture and a hierarchical team structure;
    • Strong strategic, creative, and innovative thinking;
    • Outstanding written and oral communication skills;
    • Passion for and commitment to freedom of speech, the fight against corruption, citizen empowerment and social change;
    • High professionalism, self-motivation, efficiency and results-oriented delivery on short timelines.

    We hope for a blend of these criteria but will consider qualified candidates who may not meet all of them.

    Fluency in English is a requirement. Additional EU languages are an asset.

    Location: Based in the EU -- preferably in Brussels or available to travel there frequently.

    Crisp is expanding, and we're looking for bright, talented graduates to join our team in the summer of 2020.

    Here at Crisp, we value the strength in teamwork, and strongly believe that it’s the key to Crisp’s success. By bringing together bright, motivated creators, wherever they live and work, we are leveraging humanity’s diversity of experience and background in order to understand the challenges facing our food supply, and solve them together. Come join us, and help build the type of business you’d like to be a part of.

    We are a socially conscious, distributed team. We give you the opportunity to solve challenges in the global food industry while living where you’re most comfortable and working in areas where you can help foster and grow the community that you are a part of.

    As one of the first members of the data science team at Crisp you have will have a unique opportunity to write production models that turn previously scattered and inconsistently structured data into immediately actionable food industry insights to reduce waste, increase freshness and much more.

    As a successful candidate for this position, you are a recent graduate from a quantitative major such as computer science, data science, statistics, or similar. You know how to translate your analysis into code, and you’re comfortable writing Python (or a similar language), participating in code reviews, and pushing your code to production. 

    Requirements

    • Python
    • Git
    • Shell (bash, zsh, or similar)

    Signs of a great candidate

    • Collaborative. You know that your team members’ perspectives will make your solutions better. Similarly, you use your strengths to help us grow together.
    • Customer focused. User experience trumps everything. You understand that a product will have little value if the customers don't enjoy using it.
    • Disciplined and reliable. We are a distributed company and you enjoy the benefits of working distributed while consistently delivering what you have committed to. When you hit a snag, you communicate and reset expectations early.
    • Appreciative of honest feedback. You know that the best way to learn and grow is through constructive feedback delivered kindly, but without unnecessary ambiguity. You view feedback given to you as an opportunity to get better and strive to do the same for others.
    • Work smarter and harder.  You’re fluent with your tools, and focused on solving real problems.  Not only do you know how to find answers in the data, you also know which questions should be asked in the first place and what data can help us further bolster our conclusions.
    • Analytical and practical mind. You strive for simple, precise solutions to complex problems. Complex solutions are only acceptable when absolutely needed. You strive for correct solutions, but know what actually matters and when to make compromises. You know when to ship and when to continue investigating.

    • Continuous deployment. Code is never far from being deployed to production, because if it’s not in production, it’s not solving problems in the real world. Our branch time spans are short, and features under development are hidden behind feature flags.
    • Cloud first. As a services offering in the 21st century, the cloud isn’t the future, it’s the present. We’re fully invested in using the features offered by our cloud provider in order to minimize technical debt and maximize productivity.
    • Micro-services. Not for the sake of the buzz, but when they make sense. By adopting a modern, thoughtful services architecture we’re able to scale organizationally, reduce technical debt, and maintain a high, sustained velocity.
    • Start-up mode.  The team is still small, and the product is fresh.  You’ll be able to exert a large amount of influence, and contribute to decisions that will determine the future of the product and the team.

    We are building a team of developers with a breadth of combined experiences so that we can collaboratively build great products. There are no hard requirements on specific background, experience or geographical location. Instead we’re looking for individuals that are capable, reliable, and hoping to grow along with us.

    • Earn a competitive salary and benefits (health/dental/401k).

    • Work with one of the brightest teams in tech.

    • Speak at and attend conferences like PyData on Parse.ly's dime.

    • Frameworks like Django, Tornado and the PyData stack (e.g. Pandas).
