Berlin, Germany

🌎 What we do

We build software that helps companies along the food system get to Net Zero.

~31% of global GHG emissions originate from food-related activities. For the first time in history, climate performance has become an overall business performance indicator. Enterprises are mandated by regulatory bodies to disclose their climate performance, which leads to increasing pressure from investors, competitors, retailers, and consumers to prevent and reduce their CO2e emissions. Over the next 10 years, companies have set ambitious reduction targets that need to be met. Enterprise software and new business processes can help.

We raised >€10m in funding in the first 2 years of our existence, we launched our enterprise product, signed and onboarded some of the largest F&B players in Europe, and put together what we believe is the best-suited early stage tech team in Europe.

Will you be the next to join us? 🚀

🔭 What you will work on

Your mission

Build and scale our software products with a sense of full ownership.

In the first 6 months, your focus will be on

  • Coding (this is a very hands-on role) our web application – frontend, backend and infrastructure

  • Adjusting and expanding our tech stack where necessary

  • Setting up and improving our infrastructure set-up – with a focus on database structure, data pipelines and analytics, which is a big part of the value we offer to our customers

  • Setting the foundations for our engineering practices in line with our broader operating model to attract and retain the best engineering talent in Europe

Tech Stack

  • Our tech stack, much like our business and product, is still in its early stage. Joining at this point means you will still play a key role in defining what tools and technologies we will use to build up Root Global for years to come!

  • Our product consists of multiple web applications our customers use, based on a backend consisting of user input data (procurement, product composition, etc.) calculation models, and plug-ins to various emission factor/LCA databases

  • Frontend: React and Next.js

  • Backend: Node.js w/Typescript, PostgreSQL

  • Infra: AWS

🧺 What you bring along

Based on what you know on the role 👆 you are the best evaluator to decide if you believe this is a role you will be able to thrive in.

These are some things that would help:

  • You have built full-stack web applications before – that people are actually using

  • You have worked in an early stage VC-backed startup (pre-seed/seed), preferably with a B2B business model

  • You feel comfortable with broad product requirements and enjoy participating in the product conceptualisation phase

  • You feel comfortable guiding teams through technical troubleshooting and delivering feedback on topics beyond technical performance.

🧡 You don’t feel like you fulfill all the criteria? We get it: confidence can sometimes hold us back from applying for a job. But guess what?! There is no such thing as a ‘perfect’ candidate. The only thing you need to ensure along the recruiting process and beyond is that the problem that we are solving with Root is one you cannot wait to get out of bed for on Monday morning!
