Head of Operations

HelloFresh advertised on Movemeon for a Head of Operations to report to CEO and take leadership position in disruptive sector.

The successful Movemeon member previously worked at McKinsey & company.

HelloFresh is the new way to cook delicious meals from scratch at home in a convenient and affordable way. Our subscribers create a box that caters to their individual needs and lifestyle on our website. Boxes contain three to five beautifully designed recipes and all the high-quality ingredients to cook these meals. We then deliver directly to our customer’s doorstep once per week.

As ingredients are portioned out into exact quantities, both cooking time and food waste are kept to a minimum. Easy-to-follow recipe cards and inspiring dishes make cooking a simple and convenient part of customer’s weekly routine. And, because we provide a regular & exact order each week with our trusted suppliers, we can supply top quality ingredients to our customers at lower than equivalent supermarket prices. 

Since launching 3 years ago, we have grown rapidly to deliver millions of meals per month and picked up plenty of press accolades and awards along the way. However, we believe we are only at the beginning of our journey to make an enduring mark on the way people shop and eat. 

We have grown whilst maintaining a highly lean, entrepreneurial and passionate team and strongly believe that, with the right mindset and approach, small teams can achieve big things. We’d love to discuss how you can join our adventure!
