    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 [https://tech.just-eat.com/open-source/]. 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.

    The Opportunity

    Over the past year, we have been working incredibly hard to transform our products and services to make them better than ever before – and we are just getting started. Now, we are looking for a talented and motivated Product Designer to join our team of problem solvers and innovators!

    At Just Eat Takeaway, we work in cross-functional teams made up of Designers, Researchers, Product Managers and Engineers. The way we work is collaborative and fast-paced. We want to discover what our users will love as soon as we can.  We like to explore problems in-depth and we like to get our users in to speak with us every few weeks, to explore what we are working on and help us understand their needs.

    We are looking for an experienced Product Designer who can take our products to the next level – someone who can create simple and intuitive user experiences.

    While much of your time will be spent working directly on problems, you will also be joining a team of 40 creatives, made up Product Designers, UX Designers, UI Designers, User Researchers and Copywriters.

    If you are keen to join a growing and successful company and want to see your work help millions of people, please get in touch.

    We think this job might be for you if: 

    • You care about creating great solutions that delight and inspire users.
    • You like working alongside agile teams with Product Managers and Engineers to create inspiring solutions.
    • You like working on problems, rather than features.
    • You are keen to have users view your ideas, concepts and work regularly.
    • You thrive in a rapidly changing environment.
    • You like working client-side but are keen to see your work released quickly and regularly.

    Key Responsibilities

    • Create seamless & innovative solutions – You focus on key user problems and come up with innovative and beautiful solutions while empowering consumers to love their takeaway experience.  You own every aspect of the product’s design, from solving the core user problem to shipping a well-tested and pixel perfect UI.
    • Own every aspect of the product’s design –  You work across the entire product lifecycle from concept to delivery and create documentation, wireframes, prototypes and pixel perfect UI. You create hi- and lo-fi prototypes that can be validated with users and are able to communicate the detail of these interactions to developers.
    • Research – You have a strong working knowledge of research methods and can conduct research and usability studies in conjunction with UX Researchers.
    • Data-driven – You use qualitative and quantitative data to influence their work. In conjunction with the Product Manager, you measure and monitor the performance of the products you work on.
    • Communicate – You transparently communicate on your progress and you discuss ideas with your cross-functional team. You present well both within the Design team and to non-creative stakeholders.
    • Teamwork –  You take a collaborative approach and foster strong working relationships with your team, and with people in the wider Just Eat team, learning from them.
