    Just Eat

    Just Eat is known throughout the UK as a great way to get food delivered to your door, but behind that enterprise is a team of highly skilled techies exploring every possible way to get you the food you want as easily as possible.

    This includes developing automated takeaway-delivery robots, chatbots that uses machine learning to guess what type of food you may want from your facial expression, Apple TV applications that let you split the cost of your takeaway between friends, Alexa apps, Hololens apps, Xbox apps, Virtual reality experiences – you name a cutting-edge technology, and Just Eat is exploring the possibilities the tech can offer the food-ordering community.

    The company also has a big commitment to open-source technology []. As Just Eat says on its website, “Just Eat is constantly innovating and every now and again we come up with something super neat that we can’t find an ‘out-of-the-box’ answer to; which we would like to contribute back to the community in the hope of solving some more of those common problems.”

    The Just Eat tech team pride themselves on experimentation and learning from failure. As Craig Pugsley, Just Eat’s Principal UX Engineer says, “We have a wonderfully liberating principle of failing early and failing fast; it’s our job to fail those nine times so that we can get to that one time that is the absolutely killer success.” So, if you are interested in product research using the some of the most innovative technology tools out there, Just Eat’s Bristol R&D department want to hear from you.


    It’s our job to understand and serve the Just Eat customer. Who are the people that come to Just Eat to buy their meals online? What do they need? What can we do to make their experiences better? Our Technology department is revolutionising the way people interact with food online every day by exploring new channels, such as voice-controlled ordering and virtual reality. Our team also collaborates with other internal departments to make sure our products and tech are tailor made from top insights and industry expertise.
