Senior Photography Art Director - Photo-Studio (f/m)

HelloFresh, Berlin

Delivering great recipes and fresh ingredients to your home each week

We believe that cooking scrumptious dinners at home should be simple for everyone. That’s how HelloFresh was born. We’re making dinner time easier and more fun for all of us.

We’re the leading global company in the expanding online recipe kit delivery market. Today is your chance to become an important part of our rapidly growing food and e-commerce start up. You’ll be given responsibility from day one and asked to use your initiative and creativity to help us grow our business and get more people cooking from scratch. Every day, we embrace new challenges – and that’s what makes HelloFresh fun and unique. We’re fast-paced and love all things food related.


About the job

As a Senior Studio Art Director - Photo Studio (f/m), you’ll be working in our own photo studio, where we take photos & videos for our 9 different markets.

In our photo studio, we freshly cook all the our meals, naturally style them to perfection and photograph them with passion and creativity. Your job will be to take creative briefings and develop creative photo and set compositions. You’ll tell the stories of our recipes and ingredients in our photos, using light, props and backdrops. You’ll scour flea markets to get the right accessories, you’ll paint eggs to add a rustic charm to our Easter photography and you’ll even rasp a piece of wood for the perfect finish. You’ll need that DIY (do it yourself) drive, so you’ll enjoy building sets and composing photos. In addition, you will occasionally cast models for our lifestyle shootings. After the shoot, you’ll select the best shots together with the post-production. You’ll be working side by side with our Chef, Food Stylist, Food Photographer, Post Production and local & global design team.

Who we’re looking for

First of all, you’ll need passion for food – that’s a huge part of our story at HelloFresh. Secondly, we‘re looking for someone with outstanding creativity and art direction experience. Someone who is very hands on when it comes to photography, props building and set dressing.

  • You should have a strong understanding of art, conceptual design, photography as well as retouching/ post production (good Photoshop knowledge).  
  • You have exceptional taste in design, an eye for every detail, a passion for creation and experience in concepting and developing great sets and compositions.
  • You should have a minimum of 3-5 years work experience in creative teams, brand storytelling and bring extensive practical experience in your field.
  • You’re hands on as you´ll organise the props.   
  • You’re reliable, dedicated, and accurate and have good organizational and interpersonal skills.
  • You’re flexible, ambitious, enthusiastic, and a team player.
  • You’re fluent in English (German is a plus.) 
  • You have a working permit for Germany.

  • A feel-good team: we don't just work well together; we also like to get together after work
  • You feel personally responsible for our tasks and projects and do not have a "nine-to-five" or "whatever" attitude
