Job description

Liefergrün Mission

Liefergrün is a technology and service platform striving for the most convenient and sustainable delivery experience in online shopping.

Nowadays, you can decide exactly when your pizza or groceries are delivered, but when it comes to the parcel delivery of your favourite online shop, you have no way of influencing anything on the post-purchase experience.

We want to change the status-quo of how parcels are delivered. We strongly believe that technology drives change and that end-consumers should be in the position to decide about the when and how.

We are believers that innovation should be made to impact our world - we strongly believe that we must act now! Therefore we decided to deliver only 100% zero-emission and to avoid that emissions are made. Our golden rule is always avoidance comes before compensation!
