Who We Are

Our ambition is to be the definitive food company, feeding people three times a day with great food from the World's best-loved restaurants, all with an unparalleled level of convenience.

From distributed computing to large-scale system design, complex algorithms to beautiful user interfaces, we have teams working on every step of the journey, in real-time, to ensure we continue to offer our customers a growing selection of choice at the best price with a fantastic level of service.

We work with thousands of restaurants worldwide, from renowned local gems to your favourite chains, allowing them to open up a new revenue stream & reach new customers. Our restaurant partners, riders & customers are as passionate about food as we are, & if you want to make an impact on millions of users by solving some of the biggest technical challenges at great scale, come on board & join the ride.

The Team 

We are the Financial Integrity (FI) team at Deliveroo. We are responsible for the accurate, timely & reliable capture & reporting of money movements throughout the three-side marketplace. As we continue to grow post-IPO our function has become more & more central to the continuing & future successes of the company.

It is difficult to find any major features or services offered by Deliveroo that are not in some way supported & enabled by our work - the three-sided marketplace is underpinned by the frameworks & bespoke services we put in place to support them. Our work does not stop with those three groups; we are also responsible for the accurate & timely reporting of financial & related data to our finance, tax & compliance teams, allowing Deliveroo to meet its financial, legal & regulatory obligations worldwide.

Why join us?

  • Deliveroo is a high growth organisation & as the Financial Integrity engineering leader you will have impact on the strategy of how we manage the recording of money movement throughout the organisation.
  • The scope of the role spans the whole organisation. You will primarily lead the team but influence technical & product decisions across the organisation. 
  • Financial Integrity gives you the  opportunity to gain a broad understanding of how the definitive food company operates. This gives great future growth opportunities.
  • Gain experience of handling money movement in a high volume, complex technical & business domain.

What will you be doing?: 

  • Contribute to, influence & lead the development of new services & features for financial systems, improving accuracy, transparency, auditability & reliability of money movements throughout the organisation.
  • Work across engineering groups to ensure financial principles are adhered to throughout the org, not just within our group.
  • Work alongside product managers to define & deliver the strategic roadmap.
  • Work with our stakeholders (finance, tax, compliance teams) to ensure all software & services meet the standards required.
  • You will be the line manager for one or more teams of engineers.
  • Grow a diverse, highly-skilled group of engineers, gaining fantastic exposure to scaling a tech team at a unique pace.
  • Create a learning environment for your team & act as a mentor for engineers & up & coming leaders.
  • Become instrumental in improving & implementing processes & values that scale effectively.
  • Provide technical mentorship to engineers building & deploying large-scale projects internationally.

What you need to have:

  • Experience following best practice around the delivery of business-critical services.
  • Proven leadership skills as a line manager to a team.
  • Software engineering experience building user-focused products at pace.
  • A collaborative & supportive style, to encourage your team to continually optimise their code.
  • You set goals & objectives & offer advice, setting your team up for success.
  • Youre a natural recruiter, passionate about building your team.

What would be nice to have:

  • Experience working in a fintech or finance-related technology environment.
  • Understanding of the issues & imperatives of money movement.
  • Basic understanding of accounting principles.

If you dont have the above then our approach to mentoring & coaching will quickly enable you to become proficient to succeed in your role.

We believe a great workplace is one that represents the world we live in & 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 race, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexuality, disability, age, marital, parental or veteran statusor a secret aversion to coriander. All you need is a passion for (most) food & a desire to be part of one of the fastest growing startups around.
