Deliveroo has announced that it will create 400 new tech jobs as it looks to support its “rapid growth”.
The company is currently seeking to hire across a range of skill sets including software engineers, product managers, user researchers, designers, and data scientists.
The expanded team will work on a range of projects to support growth, such as improving Deliveroo’s “on-demand” grocery delivery offering, expanding its “signature service”, and growing the company’s delivery-only editions kitchens.
The announcement comes as the company reveals new tech features which will help restaurant partners to improve connection with their customers and enable them to strengthen their offering.
Restaurants will also benefit from direct “restaurant-to-customer” communication within the app allowing restaurants to respond to feedback, send vouchers, remedy order issues and give personal touches to new or loyal customers.
Dan Winn, chief technology officer of Deliveroo, said: “Deliveroo is proud to be at the forefront of Britain’s dynamic technology sector and we are excited to be expanding our tech team to help drive Deliveroo’s growth.
“These new team members will play a vital role in building best-in-class technology to help restaurants reach new customers, improve rider experience, and give customers access to the food they love.”
