At Picnic, you get the chance to join a young and forward-thinking startup culture, where everything you do matters. With a data-driven approach and an incredible service, Picnic strives to make grocery shopping simple, fun, and affordable for everyone. Known for our just-in-time supply-chain and a unique last-mile delivery strategy, we have become one of the fastest-growing companies of the Netherlands!
Do you want to play a leading role in the grocery revolution?
Picnic is data-driven and complex – from pricing strategies, forecasting, warehouse automation, to the ever-expanding growth of our company, we are constantly faced with new challenges and opportunities…that’s where you come in!
We are looking for an experienced business analyst who can drive complex business projects. You present an understanding of what drives consumer behavior and operational efficiency. You’ll glean actionable insights from large data sets - but your eyes definitely won’t be glued to data all day! You also offer entrepreneurial, realistic, and practical business opportunities. You use your experience to prioritize the work, help your colleagues and to make sure we finish what we start with the best end result. You will take ownership of your work from the day you start.
Have a forward-thinking idea? Tell your team, modify it, evaluate, experiment, and then make a real impact in our company!
Our experienced business analysts can work within any Picnic team, such as operations, marketing or our store team, and will work together with fellow analysts and colleagues from a whole range of other disciplines. We use data in every decision that we make, therefore your input will add value to everything we do!
- Drive implementation and improvement of projects from kick-off until the final whistle
- Design, implement and evaluate numerous experiments
- Optimize tools, systems and business processes
- Relentless focus on creating habit-forming product ideas
You combine first-class analytical skills with a creative and problem-solving mindset. You don’t only see numbers in data sets, but you see opportunities.
As an innovative thinker, you constantly generate your own ideas. You’re also ambitious – you come up with smart solutions, not easy ones.
Superior presentation and communication skills allow you to convert complexity into digestible information for your team. You are confident and you use your experience to take ownership of your projects, but also collaborate with and motivate your colleagues!

- 3 to 6 years of experience as a business analyst or strategy consultant
- Advanced Excel skills
- Excellent communication and project management skills
- Confidence with a range of quantitative and qualitative research methods

Picnic offers you the opportunity to work in a start-up culture where everything you do matters. In our modern Amsterdam office, you will have the freedom to experiment and evolve your own projects as well as the chance to test them on real customers. Besides that, you will receive regular trainings tailored to your needs and experience.
You will be part of an international, all-star team of ground-breaking entrepreneurs, brilliant engineers, and data wizards that work with desire and dedication each day. But don’t worry, at Picnic groceries aren’t a chore – we play as hard as we work!
