It's our job to understand and serve the Just Eat customer. Who are the people that come to Just Eat to buy their meals online? What do they need? What can we do to make their experiences better? Our Technology department is revolutionising the way people interact with food online every day by exploring new channels, such as voice-controlled ordering and virtual reality. Our team also collaborates with other internal departments to make sure our products and tech are tailor made from top insights and industry expertise.
Position: Software Engineer
Reports to: Technology Manager
We’ve created a world of choice and built a robust tech platform working with over 62,000 restaurant partners to serve everything from pizza to sushi, burgers to burritos.
That was just the beginning, and we’re super proud of it. But the best is yet to come.
Nobody offers more variety when it comes to bringing people food. We welcome our customers in to our amazing and expanding selection of cuisines with fresh ways to experience the food they love, and find food we know they’re going to love.
We inspire our restaurant partners to raise their game. Because we have data and insights like no other, we highlight great opportunities to grow and improve their businesses and raise standards across the industry.
Relentlessly discovering and inventing new ideas and technologies that will make things better for partners and customers, and bringing them together around food.
We’re proud of what we’ve built, and the countless ways we’ve connected people with food, everywhere. Now we can’t wait to make it even better - we’re creating the world’s greatest food community!
We don’t divide responsibility for development and operation of our platform, so you and your team will support the changes you make all the way through to operating successfully in production at peak times.
Our product development teams are growing because we have a huge number of ideas of how to improve the experience customers and restaurants have. As an Engineer you will need to play a key role in turning those ideas into reality. You’ll need to:
- Track the progress that you are making towards the wider goals of your team, and transparently communicate that progress to your team and Technology Manager.
- Keep to the processes, standards and designs that your team has agreed.
- Ensure you and others continuously improve by proposing and then implementing new processes, designs and engineering practices that make your team more effective.
- Contribute to the definition of product features, including in workshops with other product development teams.
