Join our HelloFresh Family

At HelloFresh we love food and our mission is to change the way people eat forever. That change comes conveniently packaged in a box - a HelloFresh Box, filled with the best fresh ingredients. 

With our meal boxes with easy-to-cook recipes and fresh ingredients, we are driving change in the quickly evolving food industry. From developing our recipes to delivering the boxes - the customer is at the center of everything we do. Our aim is to make every meal a moment to look forward to, for everyone at the table. No surprise then that data is our friend and for us, learning never stops. We make quick but informed decisions and as a fast-growing company, we value flexibility and speed.

We need you!
For our young and passionate team in product operations, we are looking for an Ingredient Specialist Intern to support the team from January 2022 for 5-6 months. Working in the Product Operations team you will be a part of the recipe team where ingredient onboarding is a specialism. 

You will be working with the new ingredient specialists who are responsible for the entire process of new ingredients. From ideation to testing and tracking performance, it’s the whole package. Preferably you have a good tasting pallet, if not, you will after your internship! 

You’ll be working on:

  • Tracking performance of new ingredients;
  • Testing new ingredients;
  • Documenting the onboarding of new ingredients;
  • Recooking recipes to see if the new ingredients fit well;
  • Supporting in bigger tasting sessions (Globally oriented).

Are you our perfect new colleague?

You are a 2nd or 3rd year student in food & dietetics. You love food and are familiar with new products and ingredients appearing in your own supermarket. That said, you are probably also the type that checks all packaging to see what ingredients each product contains, where the product comes from and who manufactured it. The ideal intern is highly organised, to be able to document and keep track of new ingredients. At HelloFresh we give a lot of trust in our employees, taking ownership and responsibility is therefore important. Of course we will help you out when needed, we are known to be a very fanatic, fun and creative team! The ideal intern speaks both fluent Dutch and English.

We will schedule an online interview with the hiring team to get to know you better. If both sides are enthusiastic, we would like to plan a last chat with our New ingredient specialist. We will schedule the (online) interviews as quickly as possible, to make sure you'll know as fast as possible if you can start at HelloFresh!
