About Us

Tenzo is an analytics and AI forecasting platform with the mission of making restaurants as successful and sustainable as possible.

We’ve just had our best year yet, ending 2021 with customers in 18 countries and 3 times as many signed locations as we started the year with. We’re looking to supercharge this growth, getting real-time data into the hands of the people who need it.

Using advanced analytics and big data techniques, we improve performance across a restaurant's operations, focusing on labour optimisation, customer experience and accurate demand forecasting.

We are backed by Techstars and leading Silicon Valley venture capitalists and this is an epic opportunity to be part of a fast-growing, exciting start up with a huge amount of growth potential.

The Role

We’re building the world’s first “predictive mobile-first business intelligence platform”. As we grow, we’re looking for a leader to help us build and grow our engineering team.

We’re looking for someone who can help us attract, hire, retain and grow the best engineering talent – all while turbo-charging team productivity. You’ll be a key connector to other parts of the business – working across product, UX, QA and customer success.

Expertise in our core areas helps: ETL, data visualisation, machine learning and slick enterprise product development. Python and javascript expertise will be important as you help mentor the team. You’ll have the enthusiasm to face challenging problems, help us build new features, and the drive to deliver a high-quality product to our customers.
