We want to make it very clear that no matter whether the office is in a traditional or serviced space whether there are 500 staff or 50 that we’re offering similar services, the same high level of support and we’re consistently going above and beyond expectations. This isn’t just about making sure there is coffee or arranging a plumber to unblock the toilets this is about our attitude of ‘customers first’ and doing everything we need behind the scenes to keep operations running smoothly and playing our part in making Deliveroo an awesome place to work. We don’t add friction or make things difficult we’re the team people go to to get stuff done! 


What does this mean for you?

Depending on your location and office it will be different for each person. Whilst we want to be a global team with global standards, we also want each and every office to have a very local flavour. There might be small tweaks to your role and responsibilities which is to be expected as we grow and change and this is, we hope you agree, exciting and why you choose to work here. We’re really focused on making this happen and want to make sure you have all the support you need and you’re empowered to deliver our vision. 

Life at Deliveroo

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.
