🎁 What we offer

    • Huge impact. AB Tasty is only as great as our team. By helping us brainstorm on both short-term and long-term milestones and goals, you’ll have a direct impact on the company’s success.
    • No micromanaging. Be the owner of your effort - you’ll be one of the team and fully  trusted to take responsibility for your tasks. You’ll have every incentive to make a real impact.
    • International reach. Our audience is wildly international, and our team is too. Although our HQ is located in France, our company language is English.
    • Continuous education. We offer many opportunities for each employee to learn and grow from a mix of professional and non professional topics (a few examples of our permanent or latest classes: Coding lessons, blockchain class, mental health coaching, vegan cooking, …).
    • Unique career opportunity. By joining a fast-growing company that’s making waves in the tech industry, you’ll have a wonderful chance to enhance your learning and advance in your career faster than you ever thought possible.
    • Lots. Of. Fun. Our incredible magic makers organize awesome events, such as team games, drinks, yoga classes, parties, and a company-wide retreat every year with employees from all countries gathering for 2 days of fun.
    • Remote working, flexible schedule. This isn’t a “clock in, clock out” company. We care about your productivity,  not tracking every minute you’re on site. It’s up to you to always be responsible for your work, no matter where you are or what schedule you’re keeping.
    • Time for yourself. After a year within AB Tasty, we offer you a day off during which we simply ask you to think  about your career expectations with us. It's not always easy to find time for introspection and to envision what path can lead us to a happy career so we offer a Retreat Day as an opportunity to reflect on that. We not only aim to succeed, but also to make you succeed.

🕵️ What we look for

    • A bit of experience. Minimum 5+ years experience in a top tier consulting firm. Experience in corporate strategy, simplifying and solving complex and ambiguous problems. Experience with use of business intelligence tools and processes. Successful track record partnering with and influencing senior stakeholders.
    • Strategic thinker. You have strong analytical skills. 
    • Business Insight. Including advising, designing business models, interpreting customer and market insights, forecasting, benchmarking, etc.

    • Ambition. You never settle for anything less than your best. You’re eager to be part of a team that strives to constantly grow and enjoy overcoming fresh, exciting challenges on a daily basis.
    • Initiative. Once you understand the scope of a project, you’re able to work independently, often coming up with ingenious ways to reach your goals. In addition, you’re constantly exploring the world around you, looking  for new ideas and opportunities.
    • Reasoning and depth of learning. You’re structured and creative enough to solve most challenging problems  independently. You learn new concepts and skills rapidly, and love to nerd out and go in-depth. 
    • Proficiency in English. Effective communication is one of the key aspects of this job. That’s why you need to read, write, and speak fluently in English. 
    • French native speaker. You need to have a perfect understanding of the French language and culture to ensure a clear communication with decision makers.
