At FOSS, we are driven by a strong sense of purpose, and we hope you are too. A fast-growing world population means that the global food production will have to increase by 60% by 2050 to meet demand. We want to come up with smarter ways to make the best use of agricultural resources, and to help eliminate food waste. If that sounds like something you would like to get out of bed for every Monday morning, then read on.

Our ambition
The FOSS Software Services (FSS) division aims at developing a software-as-a-service offering to help the large FOSS customer base of food manufacturers in achieving better production efficiency and optimize yields.

You will be joining the newly established team for Production Efficiency and Yield Optimization (PEYO). Your role as food engineering/production efficiency expert will be to support the team with domain knowledge on food processing and its continuous improvement. Supporting our objective to deliver value to our customers, by leveraging three key capabilities:
