Why work with us?

FoodStyles is built on continuous improvement, transparency and maximum momentum. We've built a company we truly love working for, and we think you will love it too.

Fast and data-driven decision making

Building on sound data is the norm. Many decision are based on assumptions, experience and intuition in order to keep momentum. Being clear about what the grounds are for decisions creates faster and more precise learning.

Encouraging debate and avoiding compromise

Encouraging passionate factual disagreement while avoiding consensus creates faster and better learning. The best solutions are often just based on just one side of the argument and requires you to get behind someone else’s idea.

Be authentic and good

Bureaucracy and politics are needed when people lack purpose and passion. It slows you down, costs money and decreases quality. Being authentic means embracing mistakes, disagreements and learning in order to fulfill a purpose. Trying to do good and assuming that other people have good intentions creates positive energy.

Work happier

While we encourage people to come to the office, you can work from any place where you are the happiest and most productive.

We offer a very competitive, above market salary, also the possibility to get share options after a trial period.

Get in touch

We would love to hear about you, your background and what you've been up to recently. It takes less than 3 minutes.

If you know somebody that we’ll hire, you will be rewarded €2000
