We're Tovala, a food-tech company completely reinventing home cooking to save consumers time. Through an innovative combination of hardware, software, and food, we give our customers a way to enjoy really good, good-for-you meals without sacrificing time to do whatever matters to them. We've amassed a loyal, rapidly growing following in just three years, radically changing the day-to-day lives of people across the country and successfully creating a new model for the food industry. We're looking for great people to join our team of hard-working, food-loving nerds.
At Tovala, we believe in developing data as a core technical competency. Job postings from most other companies talk on and on about stuff that really doesn’t matter. So here’s us sticking to the stuff that matters:
- You need to be results-oriented. We trust our teammates to take ownership of their work, manage their time effectively, and communicate openly about timelines, blockers, and ambiguities. Nobody checks (or cares) what hours you work - we just care that the work gets done and that you feel happy and supported doing it.
- You need to be adaptable and collaborative. Our team’s focus will evolve as the company grows. You will work on cross-functional projects spanning the whole organization. You will collaborate with coworkers with different expertise, experiences, and mental frameworks. As our team grows, you will have the opportunity to coach junior teammates.
- You need to be technical. As the company scales, our processes need to scale. We intend for our analytical processes, from data sanitization to predictive forecasts, to be both rigorous and extensible. You will be trusted to make and justify tradeoffs between scalable solutions and “good enough for now” solutions depending on the scope, impact, and urgency of the problem at hand.
- We want you to bring your whole, authentic self to work. Give us a chance to appreciate the person behind the job title. Bonus points if your authentic self is passionate about food (cooking, eating, or philosophizing about).
