When you first think about Deliveroo, you probably think of getting great food to your house in less than half an hour. Awesome right? But behind the scenes is the real story. This story is one of high growth, huge challenges and an enormous opportunity ahead of us. It began with our founder Will, arriving in London over 5 years ago and finding it almost impossible to order great food, despite the wealth of incredible restaurants in the city. Fast forward 5 years and we operate in 13 countries with over 50,000 riders who deliver orders from 50,000 restaurants in over 200 cities worldwide.
We want to be the definitive food company - the app you go to any time you have a hunger pang. We are transforming the way people think about food. We are providing people with limitless access to different cuisines and restaurants, turning cooking from a chore to a choice, and giving people the freedom to eat what they want, when they want, where they want it.
We work with riders, restaurants and consumers. We operate one of the most complex three sided marketplaces in the world and we do this in real time. Millions of customers and thousands of restaurants and riders rely on us to match them within milliseconds. The algorithms behind that marketplace are the secret sauce that allow us to deliver our orders in under 30 minutes.
And we’re just getting started
The scale of the opportunity ahead of us 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 our journey in the food sector has only just begun.
We 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 we 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 us.
Partner Services are the team who get restaurants set up on Deliveroo. This involves getting their menu sorted, making sure they have a great photo and helping them to serve their first order as quickly as possible! We provide the building blocks for restaurants to be a success on Deliveroo, so the service we provide needs to be the best it can possibly be, and we are constantly striving to make this better.
The role of the Team Assistant is to assist in supporting the Regional and Project team daily on a number of tasks ranging from the upkeep of our restaurant contracts to the management of our box sending process; you will be an integral part of the team and will help keep us running daily, while also coming up with creative solutions to make our process smoother than ever. You will work with a variety of stakeholders both within the team and externally.
To be successful in the Team Assistant role you need to engage yourself in every aspect of the company, always be expanding your knowledge base across multiple platforms and disciplines whilst demonstrating excellent problem-solving skills and liaising with key stakeholders such as the Onboarding Teams, Design and Admin teams across all of our markets.
We’re looking for an individual who has excellent knowledge of why restaurants use Deliveroo to further their business and who can not only help Deliveroo grow but also constantly be thinking of ways to help our teams complete tasks. The ideal candidate should be:
- A confident communicator who is able to work with and support teams in all of our markets.
- Analytical and with good technical skills, able to solve issues and communicate fixes quickly and effectively.
- Efficient at handling large amounts of Data and managing multiple uploads to keep the Onboarding process moving.
- Able to manage the entire portfolio of Onboarding forms and contracts and being able to update these in a timely manner and keeping teams up to date on progress.
- Strong problem-solving ability; the candidate will need to be adept with data and be able to solve problems and come up with creative solutions.
- Excellent time-management skills and the ability to work on multiple items at once.
- Have strong decision-making skills to make effective decisions on tasks to be carried out daily.
- Strong communication skills and the ability to work with multiple teams across the globe to help with daily tasks.
- Knowledge of Salesforce and DocuSign would be a bonus but not required.
Life at Deliveroo
We are a growing team, with very large impact, seeking to answer some of the most interesting questions out there. We move fast, we’re always looking for new ideas and we’re very transparent about the decisions we make and why we make them.
There are so many questions we need to answer and plenty more we haven’t even encountered. How do data and technology help restaurants to grow as consumer habits change? How can we 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 we 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.
Benefits and Diversity
At Deliveroo we know that people are the heart of the business and we prioritise their welfare. We offer a wide range of competitive benefits in areas including health, family, finance, community, convenience, growth, time away and relocation.
In 2018 we announced our decision to give every employee equity in the company. We did this because we wanted all of our employees, regardless of location, level or role to be owners and because we believe that this is the right thing to do. We believe this helps build a culture where everyone is committed and able to share in the company’s success.
We believe a great workplace is one that represents the world we live in and how beautifully diverse it can be. 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-up’s around.
