We believe a company's performance should be evaluated based on profits AND impact.
Spoiler Alert is a Boston-based technology company helping food businesses manage unsold inventory. Our mission is to empower businesses operating across global food systems to maximize sustainability, profitability, and efficiency.
We do that through cutting-edge software and value-added services delivered by a passionate team of industry professionals. Our business intelligence solution enables distributors, manufacturers, and retailers to improve their food recovery and waste diversion initiatives, and our relationship management portal facilitates real-time food donations, discounted sales, and organics recycling. All of this is coupled with a dedicated customer success team that drives continuous improvement and optimization schedules across our customers' operations.
Born out of MIT in 2015, Spoiler Alert is headquartered in Boston's Back Bay neighborhood and is backed by some of the nation's leading food, agriculture, and supply chain investors. For additional information, please visit our About Us page.
We love what we do and are united around Spoiler Alert's vision, mission, and purpose: to build an enduring company that maximizes profitability, sustainability, and efficiency across global supply chains. We recognize that our customers' successes have more far reaching implications than their own financial and operational improvements - they translate into a more sustainable world, tackling some of the greatest environmental and social challenges of our time.
We have an unwavering commitment to delivering high-quality products and services, both internally among colleagues and externally with our customers. Internally, every member of our team - regardless of title or tenure - exhibits a sense of ownership and pride in their work. Externally, we value customer happiness above all, soliciting their continuous feedback and translating it into solutions they love to use. Our brand is incredibly important to us, and we strive - day in and day out - to strengthen and enhance it in any way we can.
Learning & growth
We are students always and seek to build a team of individuals that value continuous learning and personal growth. We push our boundaries, actively pursue new skills and opportunities, and aren't afraid to embrace new directions in our roles and responsibilities. Self awareness of one's improvement areas is an admired skill, and it drives us to invest heavily in goal setting, mentorship, and continuous self-reflection.
We win as a team and fundamentally believe that no one has a monopoly on good ideas. Everyone can serve as a utility player - whether that materializes through customer work or internal company initiatives. The best results stem from team efforts, building upon one another's strengths and delivered through continuous and rapid iteration. We respect each other's time and promise presence and focus through every interaction with our colleagues and customers.
We care deeply about our teammates' well-being and customers' happiness. We look at colleagues as family and believe all of us are collectively responsible for building a team of incredible people. Physical, mental, and emotional health always come first.
