ABOUT DELIVEROO

Job Title: Software Engineer - Web

Location: Cannon Street, London

Salary: Competitive

Closing Date: 01/12/2018 

 

 

Deliveroo is on a mission to transform the way the world thinks about food, to become the definitive food company, and to feed people three times a day. It’s not a chicken chow mein and a night on the sofa anymore, it’s your favourite local restaurant, it’s a dinner party, a date.

We’re five years in, and along the way our team have taken hundreds of ideas from brainstorms to global rollouts, like Deliveroo Editions bespoke kitchens designed to host a locally curated selection of restaurants. Editions are our solution to ensuring that our customers have access to the best of the food scene, no matter where they live.

And that’s just what we’re like at Deliveroo, no compromise allowed and lots of food inspired challenges to get your teeth into. Out of the box thinking is actively encouraged and we move quickly to make great ideas happen. We’re energetic, fast-paced and blow off steam with free for all Friday lunches.

It’s a formula that’s working too we’re bringing great food to customers in 12 countries and over 200 cities.

 

WHAT WE DO

We bring meals of the highest quality, from the restaurant to you, fast. Try it out if you haven’t before. Go to our website or open up our mobile app. You’ll be greeted by an elegant menu, put together by our talented product team. Once you’ve input your location, we’ll provide a curated list of restaurants that will deliver to you. Select your items, choose any modifiers (lemon and herb? Oh, come on!) and we’ll take over. Swap the sloppy joe for a gourmet burger just dripping with all sorts of deliciousness.

 

HOW WE DO IT

Our brilliant team have helped us build a fantastically complex system that alerts the restaurant to your order, and sends a Roo (that’s what we call them, the lovely people on scooters and bikes) to the restaurant, and then to your location, in an average time of 32 minutes. It’s great for all occasions: a business lunch, entertaining guests (or guest...we won’t tell them you didn’t make it yourself!), or any time where a dodgy smelling leftover kebab just won’t cut it! You'll learn from the very best. Our developers are of the highest calibre, and you can learn more about them by visiting our Engineering Blog
