Summary

Coffee Circle

We are a coffee roasting company. For 10 years, we set new standards for fair trade and high quality coffee. We are constantly searching for exceptional coffees, even if it means to explore remote areas of the world.

We foster direct trade relationships with our partners and pay high prices for high quality coffee. We roast our coffees in Berlin and invest 1 € per kg in coffee communities around the world to improve the lives of farmers and their families.

For many, we open the door to a new world of coffee. On our website and in our Cafés, we guide you to your perfect cup of coffee – from sustainable and delicious beans, curated coffee equipment to brewing guides and authentic stories about your favorite drink.

We are the market leader in Europe for Specialty Coffee and a certified B Corporation.

How we work

  • We focus on understanding and solving customer problems and strive to constantly improve our various customer journeys.
  • We work in cross-functional teams organized around specific areas of the customer journey.
  • These teams can also include stakeholders of non-tech disciplines e.g. Procurement or Customer Support
  • We set goals based on OKRs that are aligned with overall company goals.
  • Our future newbies will report to our Head of Engineering and work closely with our other software developers and product managers
  • All employees are Berlin based, hence we expect a relocation for this role
