Job description

At Picnic, we're revolutionizing the way people buy groceries with our innovative and sustainable app-only service. We do almost everything in-house, developing cutting-edge technologies and processes to ensure we continue to grow rapidly without missing a beat. If you're a passionate Tech Analyst, we're offering you the opportunity to join the diverse team at our Amsterdam office and make a real difference in our scaleup environment.

In a nutshell

First things first: The role of an Analyst at Picnic is versatile and changes based on your project and team. You might be a project manager, in-house consultant, or data scientist. You might become an expert on all things automation, private label, or people systems. We have Analysts in all teams and you can grow by collaborating on complex projects, moving into different teams, or even to different countries.

What does that mean for your application? We'll consider you for the general Analyst position with an interest in Tech, or any other interest you want to share with us. The projects you'll work on and the team you'll join will be agreed upon during the assessment process.

Now, let's cut to the chase: As a Tech Analyst, you'll assess the development of our current products and technologies, drive our future journey, and unlock the full tech potential. This means you'll set up and drive complex strategic digital projects. You'll collaborate with Product Owners, Tech Leads, and business stakeholders to ensure the Tech team can scale to build the best milkman on earth. You'll also get involved in building teams and identifying growth opportunities within our company. You'll be working together with the 25+ Tech teams and our CTO to define the vision and the strategy of our Tech team overall.
* Analyze the strategy, development, and operations of our products and tech (e.g., aligning cross-team projects)
* Evaluate and implement existing and emerging technologies (e.g., Snowflake and Kafka)
* Support with shaping the hiring, learning, and development of our teams

What you'll do

* Enable operational excellence by approaching exciting challenges with a holistic mindset
* Drive improvement projects from kick-off until the final whistle
* Build and optimize models for process improvements
* Communicate effectively with different teams to deliver impactful and sustainable solutions

We are looking for people in all stages of their professional life! Are you applying fresh from university? You can take responsibility in business-critical projects from the start. Are you looking for the next step in your career? Become a project- or team lead, launch new features or take ownership of a product.

0-2 years of experience
* You have a completed Master's degree in Mathematics, Econometrics, Engineering (e.g. Industrial, Production, Space, Mechanical, or related), Statistics, Data Science, Analytics, Physics, Supply Chain or Logistics Operations
* You can tackle complex challenges with a data-driven, people-oriented, and entrepreneurial mindset
* Your communication skills allow you to convert abstract plans into digestible information for your team
* You have worked with SQL and Python or are excited to learn
* You are fluent in both verbal and written English

2+ years of experience (in addition to the above)
* Ideally, you have worked in fields such as (but not restricted to) technology, supply chain, or consulting and are used to fast-paced environments
* Your mentoring and coaching skills help to bring your team to the next level
* Your sharp business sense and conceptual thinking abilities, take your mind beyond the obvious and drive innovative solutions

Conditions and benefits

You'll get plenty of opportunities to challenge yourself and grow, including the Picnic Tech Academy, Lunch & Learn sessions, and tailored soft skills training. We also offer free professional weekly language courses.
Make a difference
You'll work in an awesome scale-up environment with the freedom to drive your own projects and create a visible impact. Our fully electric vehicles and sustainable business model mean you'll also be contributing to making the world a better place!
Teamwork makes the dream work
With more than 80 nationalities across 3 countries, you'll be part of a diverse company with plenty of cool stuff to get involved with, from board game evenings to after-work drinks to our company ski trip and more!
You are what you eat
You'll get freshly prepared, healthy lunches, as well as snacks and drinks-enjoy!
Stay healthy
Mental health is important. As well as having the option to speak with Picnic colleagues who act as confidential advisors, our collaboration with OpenUp gives you easy access to professional psychologists, along with workshops and materials. There are plenty of sports communities and events to get involved with, from tennis to yoga to climbing!
Attractive package
We offer competitive compensation and a pension plan that looks out for your future self.
Work-life balance
Where possible, we like to enable people to work in ways that suit their working styles, which is why we have a hybrid-working model. Our teams generally like to have at least one team day per week at the office (the tasty lunch may be a factor), but besides that, it's up to you and your team.
Benefits for expats
It can be daunting starting a new job AND moving to a new country. That's why we offer lots of support for our many expat colleagues, including:
* Relocation package: If you join Picnic from abroad, we'll cover your trip to Amsterdam, sponsor your Visa, and offer you a month of accommodation while you settle in (as long as regulations allow)
* From health insurance to living arrangements to pet passports, there are always colleagues who've faced the same challenges and are more than happy to help!
