At Deliveroo we’re customer obsessed and it’s the Research & Insights (R&I) Team which helps drive a customer centric way of thinking across the organisation. We’re passionate about the value insight delivers to drive better business decisions and outcomes for customers. At Deliveroo, “customers” doesn’t just mean consumers who use the app, but also the tens of thousands of restaurants on our platform and the riders that deliver with us.

It is an exciting time to join Deliveroo - this is a new role in the team who will be responsible for creating world class research capability that allows us to deliver best-in-class insight. This role will be responsible for managing our large scale research programmes (Customer Experience ‘Roo Voices’ and Brand / Advertising Tracking), managing our agency partnerships / research rosta and being a leading advocate on research best practice across the team. 

This role will ensure our large scale programmes allow the insight teams to deliver actionable insight. We need someone who is passionate about research methodologies and designing the right approach - they need to have experience across Customer Experience, Brand & Advertising Tracking and a good understanding of a broad range of research techniques. 

This role will primarily interact across the R&I Team, Procurement, Finance and external agency partnerships but will also require additional stakeholder engagement at times e.g. during large scale RFP’s. We need someone who can see the big picture to drive continual improvement, but also manage the day-to-day operational smooth running of programmes e.g. resolving data issues, managing back-log fixes (where they will have additional team support). 

The role will have visibility of the entire R&I team's plans and will be responsible for ensuring efficiencies, recording the actions delivered on each project and creating a programme of activity which demonstrates the value we create across Deliveroo - working closely with Internal Comms (and the wider R&I team) on initiatives like insight newsletter, annual customer festival, podcasts etc. 

We’re looking for someone who has a positive, growth mindset and isn’t afraid to get stuck-in - this person needs to be constantly thinking about how we evolve and improve our capability to deliver the best insight for our customers. Most of all we are a team who likes to have fun - we work hard and we love our jobs - if you are someone who wants to make a difference at one of the fastest growing global brands, then we’d love to hear from you!
