Feedr is looking for a CTO to join our leadership team. The best candidates will thrive in a startup environment, have a passion for food and using technology to disrupt the current food/nutrition landscape, and be incredibly intellectually curious and willing to learn.

We have grown 300% in the last 12 months and are currently at a turnover of 500,000/year, selling thousands of meals each month. Founded by Riya Grover and Lyz Swanton with experience including Deutsche Bank, Oliver Wyman, PepsiCo, Clinton Health Access Initiative, London Business School and Harvard Business School. Feedr was recently named as one of the top 100 UK startups in the 2018 Startups 100 list.
