Technology at Just Eat

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 graduate programmes are primarily based in Bristol, with one scheme based in London. We also have offices in all 12 of our international markets. So as a Just Eat Graduate, you'll be influencing both our global and local business, dealing with real responsibility from the start.

Software Engineering - what you'll be doing

Just Eat’s technology is at the heart of our business, so our software teams work across every business area and throughout every product. Our software is built in .NET core - the most advanced Microsoft tech stack available. This will give you a great grounding and broad learning opportunity to commercial programming. We have over 25 million active customers so you'll have the chance to work at an unprecedented scale. With this, we're one of the largest users of AWS in Europe, so you'll have great exposure to this too. Projects you might get to work on include personalisation of the platforms for customers, redesigning code to be suitable on a global scale or even machine learning projects to enable accurate restaurant ranking. On a day to day basis you'll be taking requirements, designing the architecture and programming the deliverables too.

This means you'll see the entire lifecycle of a Just Eat product as a graduate developer, picking up skills including programming, process planning and test driven development.

You will need:

  • Strong background in mathematics and/or science.
  • A passion for programming, whether this has been part of your degree or something you do in your spare time.
  • Highly capable at problem solving.
  • The ability to create ideas within a team environment.
  • A proven thirst for continuous learning throughout your career.
