About Liv Up

Liv Up is the leading direct-to-consumer healthy food company in Brazil. We're building a better food system by delivering the best customer experience upon a sustainable supply chain. By making healthy food very easy and tasteful – while offering a transparent and humanized service – we’re making an ever growing number of people have better eating habits.

One of the things that make Liv Up a unique company is the fact that we operate through the entire food-production chain. We are not only an ecommerce site; we also create recipes, prepare delicious food and deliver to our customers homes. Yep, we do it all :)

We have been scaling since our launch in March 2016 and we’re backed by Kaszek Ventures, Endeavor Catalyst and Spectra Investments. We’re more than 300 employees operating in several cities around Brazil looking for the best talent to help us grow further. We believe in equal opportunities and candidates are considered for all vacancies without any kind of distinction.

About our selection process

We are a Portuguese speaking company. This is written in English because 1) we value diversity and if you’re a foreign candidate, you’re more than welcome here, and 2) if you are Brazilian it is important to learn the most from the rest of the world.
