Why Deliveroo?

This story is one of high growth, huge challenges and an enormous opportunity ahead of them. Deliveroo want to be the definitive food company - the app you go to any time you have a hunger pang. They are working with riders, restaurants and consumers operating one of the most complex three sided marketplaces in the world and they do this in real time. Millions of customers and thousands of restaurants and riders rely on them to match them within milliseconds. The algorithms behind that marketplace are the secret sauce that allow them to deliver their orders in under 30 minutes.

And they’re just getting started

The scale of the opportunity ahead of them is immense. The global food market is valued at £7.7 trillion but only 1% of it is currently online. Contrast that with the digital disruption of countless other industries - from banking and travel to retail and communications - it’s clear that their journey in the food sector has only just begun.

They are already a multi-billion dollar company that is more than doubling in size every year. Deliveroo came top in the FT’s’ list of Europe’s fastest growing 1000 companies in 2018, and they were the first company ever to win Deloitte’s ‘UK Top 50’ two years in a row. Yet most of the extraordinary value this company will generate lies ahead of them.

Life at Deliveroo

They are a growing team, with very large impact, seeking to answer some of the most interesting questions out there. They move fast, they’re always looking for new ideas and they’re very transparent about the decisions they make and why they make them.

There are so many questions they need to answer and plenty more they haven’t even encountered. How do data and technology help restaurants to grow as consumer habits change? How can they predict what someone wants to order for dinner long before the idea has even crossed their mind? At Deliveroo these are just some of the tough problems they are solving - and there is no challenge that cannot be yours. No solution is owned by a particular team, which means the scope for growth and personal impact is enormous.
