If you are looking to have an impact on the world then read carefully because at Choco we are moving mountains to transition the world into sustainable food systems.

The food industry is one of the oldest and largest industries that exists. It’s an industry with essential problems, especially regarding the food supply chain. 

We are leveraging technology to bring change and start the necessary transformation the industry is craving for.

In 2018 we entered the market with our chat-based ordering app and have drastically changed the way businesses work and order with their suppliers.

Therefore, we are looking for more Chocorians who share our vision and want to join our journey here in Berlin.

What it’s like to be a Chocorian

You will join a company filled with smart, humble and hard-working people, with founders who deeply trust their employees and where the employees trust and vice versa.

We’re a startup where people put the team first, take ownership and truly understand what they are working for each and every day. 

You will join a group of people from all around the world who share their experiences, contribute in their areas of expertise, and learn from each other.
