Description

Who we are

We’re in the business of delivering awesome meals into everyone's home or office – fast.

We achieve this by building and running a superb website, suite of mobile apps, a complex logistical platform, a fleet of passionate drivers, and a global operation, all to help bring great food from the world's best-loved local restaurants to consumers with an unparalleled level of convenience. We don’t want people to have to suffer with bad takeaway delivered an age after they order.

We work with hundreds of the UK's best loved restaurants along with renowned local gems such as to enable them to open up a valuable new revenue stream. Our customers are as passionate about great food as we are!

The only thing faster than our deliveries is the growth rate of our company. We’re increasing in business scale and organizational size at a blisteringly fast rate, and keeping it all together and making everything click are at the heart of what make working at Deliveroo a thrilling experience. If you want to make a difference, and you’re passionate about food, come on board and join the ride.

What we do

As a logistics company, our software is used to transport physical goods and solve real-world problems. We handle rapid decisions about dispatching drivers in real-time and remove slow human think-time and inefficient information discovery from every interchange point in the order processing workflow so food deliveries can be fulfilled as quickly as possibly. Our current total order fulfillment time from the time that the customer submits an order until they receive their meal is, on average, 32 minutes, although we know we can do better.

You

You’ll work as part of our small but rapidly growing product team (like Dan, VP of Engineering, Simon, Head of design and, Marty, full-stack engineer) building top robust, maintainable and beautiful interfaces for a number of our products from deliveroo.co.uk, which serves our customers, to the applications used by our restaurants and customer support staff.

To do this you’ll need experience of creating great UIs on the web platform with an in-depth knowledge of HTML, CSS, and JavaScript as well as modern tools and workflows that will keep the code you write in a maintainable state.

Additionally, to ensure that our UIs have the polish that our users expect you’ll have a very keen attention to detail and be able to work iteratively with our designers. We don’t just want someone to turn JPEGs into HTML, we want you to be part of the creative process to make sure that our interfaces don’t just look nice but work well for our users.

That means we have no judgement when it comes to any one of the things that make you who you are - your gender, race, sexuality, religion or a secret aversion to coriander. All you need is a passion for (most) food and a desire to be part of one of the fastest growing start ups around.
