Product & Tech – Software Engineering

Kolonial.no is by far the leading online grocery store in Norway, but as a company we’re first and foremost an ambitious tech and logistics company - not a classic retailer.

Our goal is to create the world's most efficient retail system. Through smart work, passionate customer focus and our own technology we make a difference in the lives of thousands of customers and change society for the better through a completely re-imagined value chain for grocery shopping.

Our customers save more than 60 hours a year, time we believe can be better spent than going to the store. Our effective value chain and logistics save society tonnes of food waste each year and our distribution network replace almost 13,000 individual trips by car to the grocery store each year.
