Technology & Engineering

At Picnic, we’re revolutionising 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 excited about leading a development team building mission-critical products and services, then we have the right opportunity for you!

If you’re a passionate Tech Lead we’re offering you the opportunity to join the diverse team at our Amsterdam HQ and make a real difference in our scaleup environment.

🥜 In a nutshell 

Picnic operates more than 40 product tech teams that each provide an integral part of our customers' experience - from the point they start the app until the moment they hold their groceries in their hands. You’ll lead one of the teams in our Consumer domain. This domain is responsible for creating an engaging personalised shopping experience, delivered through our award-winning app. Teams in the Consumer  domain build the core shopping flows, promotion mechanisms, targeting/personalization systems, and payment integrations to offer a seamless experience to our customers. 

As Tech Lead you will be leading one of the Consumer domain teams and empower them to deliver high-quality, secure and performant solutions for the business we’re building. Together with the Product Owner you will evaluate initiatives and drive roadmap discussions. You’ll design and estimate technical solutions for the presented challenges together with your team.

You will be responsible for the delivery of projects and for developing the skills and strengths of the people working in your team. As a Tech Lead, you’ll lead by example, not by title.
