Dagens is on a mission to create a resilient and transparent food system using technology. By making direct trade between sustainable food producers and chefs easy and financially viable, we remove intermediaries and end up with a system with lower emissions, better soil heath, lower food waste, and higher food quality - at competitive food prices. A win-win-win, you might say.
Our user base range from Michelin restaurants to canteens serving thousands of guests, and from producers selling produce from potatoes to kombucha to oysters. We’re currently operating in Norway and Denmark, but have high ambitions for scaling.
So far, we have built a marketplace enabling chefs to buy produce directly from local producers, and then ensuring it gets delivered, fresh on their counter. We have given food producers access to a range of tools taking out administration and worry from direct trade, while making inventory management, delivery, and invoicing easy. But we have no plans of stopping there. We are now looking for a PM to own the product development of the marketplace, producer platform, and our user acquisition and onboarding process.
The marketplace is where the magic of direct trade happens, and the potential is enormous. Unlike other e-commerce platforms, we work to create strong relations between farmers and buyers, while encouraging trade patterns that are viable both for the users and the planet - while still being financially sustainable. Close relations, upselling mechanisms, and sustainable sales are important keywords here. The producer platform is where producers add and update their inventory - including prices, sustainability metrics and availability. Easy to use is crucial - as one of our main goals is to free up producers’ time to focus the important stuff.
What we do and build in Dagens has never been done before. We are not a traditional marketplace nor a wholesaler - and we have no intention of becoming it. The nature of our mission - rethinking something that’s currently broken, forces us to constantly be creative and think different. At times, this will be the biggest constant in your role.
Beyond this, we use our hiring process to discover whether the match is right for all parties.
As a distributed tech company your location is of less importance to us. We currently have offices in Copenhagen & Oslo, so proximity to these is a plus, but not a must.
If you are interested, curious, or have questions, don’t hesitate to to firstname.lastname@example.org for an informal chat - and then we’ll take it from there.
