πŸš€ What we do


We are a Munich-based startup building intelligent software for procurement. Tacto was founded by a motivated, tech-driven team and is backed by first class VCs and Germany's leading digital entrepreneurs.

In our company, we believe the next wave of technical progress will reshape the industrial world. Therefore, we aim to build sustainable supply chains in close collaboration with the backbone of Europe – industrial SMEs 

Our priorities are:

🏭 Powering the industry that builds the world: We create a new wave of innovation by lifting Europe’s industrial SMEs with tens of millions of workers to the digital era

πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸ­ Enabling effective business collaboration: We enable powerful collaboration among supplier networks as the basis for future economic growth

🌳 Saving resources in supply chains: We optimize the 50-80% of physical products' costs and emissions originating from suppliers to enhance sustainable growth

By now, our product manages hundreds of millions of € of material spend. Thereby, we help our customers to manufacture products from bread cutters to medical technology.

πŸŽ“ Let's talk about you!


Now you may wonder what frameworks, tools, and languages you need to master. We believe that problem solving, creativity, and drive are more important than tools that can be picked up. However, the following references will give a guideline of what experiences we think might be helpful.

  • You have developed a RESTful API with frameworks such as Django
  • You have used object-oriented programming languages such as Python
  • You know how to deploy applications to services such as Azure
  • You designed a data model and know how to set up a database such as PostgreSQL

You might find the following information about the rest of our tech stack helpful to get the full picture, but experience with these technologies is not required. We use TypeScript with frameworks and libraries such as React, Redux, React Router, and Material UI in the frontend.
