Descriptif du poste

TOTEM is a technology company since DAY 1. Founders are 3 engineers from Ecole Polytechnique & Centrale Paris, that had customer experience & process automation in mind at the very beginning of the company. Technology is at the core of TOTEM’s DNA, and we believe it's a required competitive advantage.

TOTEM has different products:

  • TOTAPP is our native mobile app for employees. It makes it easy for employees to request & adapt the quantities of the products they’d love to see in their cafeteria, and order products for themselves to be delivered in less than 1 hour. This app also allows them to pay in our on-site stores, and check products availability.

  • TOTEND and TOTOPS are our administration applications (web, and native mobile app). They leverage hardware & software to fully automate the logistic supply chain processes of warehouses, from end to end : products which needs to be bought, received, checked, added in racks, bundled to be delivered to our customers or our other wharehouses. We use connected cart and our own app to have 0% errors on orders preparation and lots of technical solutions to improve traceability and having a full control over the operations. We aim at making this product a reference for warehouse management for the next decades to come.

What does a Lead Tech do at TOTEM ?

One mission : lead our technical team to excellence and beyond

We like to describe our job openings with TOTEM’s 6 CORE VALUES:

MAKE IT & OWN IT: you're in charge of the tech standards of the tech team, you're the expert everybody knows they can trust. You're building our products to last, to be reliable, and make sure any new technical member of the team can jump in and be productive.

UNLEASH THE ARTIST: anytime you want, you shall have a break at the TOTEM and discuss to other team members to get new ideas, new insights, get a better understanding of the vision, the needs and the knowledge we had gather as a team.

MAKE IMPACT POSITIVELY EVERYDAY: everyday you will wake up and be considered as equal with everybody, as long as you care and you dare to move things, break them sometimes, but always going forward and pouring positive energy to the team.

TOGETHER NO LIMITS: you are part of a bigger team. Your team can move buildings, but with the help of everyone else, we move cities, countries and more importantly, we pour our vision to the world : create better interactions at work and give back their time to our users.

ROOT YOURSELF: you are very talented. You've been cracking technical problems for a long time. You master a lot of hard skills as well as soft skills such as communication, autonomy, kindness, empathy and so on. While being such a rock star, remember to stay humble, and find the balance that will keep you (and the rest of the team) out of messy troubles.

BE A SOLUTION: you will sometimes need to step up and tell the team there is a better way, and lead them. At Totem we love when our team members tackle the problems they see instead of reporting them.
