London, United Kingdom · Design
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.
What we do
Design at Deliveroo takes centre stage. Not only do we build and maintain a range of apps for our customers, drivers and restaurants, we also create packaging for our restaurants, international marketing campaigns both in print and in digital, company apparel for our team and, when time allows for it, mugs.
We support the entire business across multiple countries in delivering Deliveroo collateral that is unique and on-brand every step along the journey, and ensure that we reach both new and existing customers in a way that is effective and memorable.
We are looking for an experienced artworker to join the existing team. If you have eyes like a hawk, are detail orientated and enjoy working as part of a team as well as on your own, you’ll fit right in. We encourage our team to be curious, and invest time into finding new ways of solving problems.
As an artworker on our London-based team, you will:
- ï Efficiently deliver highly accurate and beautifully crafted artwork
- ï Finalise and adapt marketing collateral for POS, packaging, commercial print, advertising and digital media
- ï Maintain delivery of consistent graphics and message across all assets
- ï Actively contribute toward optimising ways of working within artwork production
- ï A good working knowledge of all the Adobe programs including InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator
- ï With an increasing emphasis on digital work, a knowledge of Adobe After Effects is essential
- ï Technically savvy, with a swift and efficient production method
- ï Well aware of the importance of consistency and accuracy, especially when inputting translations / localised text
- ï Proficient at retouching images
- ï Adept at reading and working to various types of spec sheets from suppliers around the world
- ï Great at managing your workflow and tasks to ensure that deadlines are met and high standards are maintained in a very busy design studio
Your technical ability is outstanding, and you care about getting things right - but you also know when it’s important to ship and iterate later. Naturally, you’ll be fantastic at using the Adobe Creative Suite and know all the ins and outs of getting something into print! You have great communication skills and are comfortable collaborating with colleagues from the entire business to create the best possible product.
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.
