Hello, we're Just Eat – a leading, global hybrid marketplace for online food delivery. We provide over 28 million customers with an easy and secure way to choose, order and pay for their favourite food from 112,000+ Restaurant Partners in 12 markets around the world.

We've built our business on having the widest choice available on our platform – with over 100 different cuisines from local independents to globally famous restaurants, available to order via our app and website.

We provide the platform and tools to help independent restaurants move online and reach a significantly broader customer base – to generate increased orders and grow their businesses. We also provide the insights, advice, and support our growing community needs to satisfy customers and help raise standards across a vibrant takeaway sector.

We’re built to deliver behind the scenes too. To make Just Eat the great company it is takes a great team of people. Which is why all our Just Eaters can rely on a diverse and inclusive workplace where they feel they can belong – allowing everyone to bring their most colourful selves to work every day. We're passionate about nurturing our people and offer a full programme of training and support to all of our employees – helping them develop their careers in a way that suits them.

Since 2001 Just Eat has grown from an ambitious crew of 15 founded in Denmark, to a global team of more than 3,700 people today – all focused on our brand vision: Serving the world's greatest menu. Brilliantly.

It’s what we do. A vision guided by our five GREAT brand values: Get it done, Razor sharp, Evolution at pace, Ambitious appetite, and Together we win… all of which give you a strong hint as to how we do it too.

They’re also the backbone of our open culture. A culture where all our employees, from all different backgrounds, speaking all sorts of languages, reflect our inclusivity and our brand’s global audience and outlook.

It’s why we’re always looking out for smart, driven, and dedicated people to bring their experience, expertise and enthusiasm to our global team. People who want to share ideas, try new things, and bring their own bit of brilliance to the Just Eat table.
 

Bon appetit!

No matter who you are, what you look like, who you love, where you are from, religious beliefs or takeaway preferences you could find your place at Just Eat. We’re a diverse and inclusive workplace that promotes a sense of belonging, allowing all of our people to bring their most colourful and complex selves to work every day.

 

Technology:

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.
 

The opportunity:

Department: UX&D, Product & Technology

Reports to: Lead Designer

 

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:

Creates 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.

 

Owns 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.

 

Your profile & experience:

  •  Minimum of 2+ years experience in a UX/UI design role.

  • Experience in designing and shipping consumer products or products for businesses.

  • Experience working in agile/sprint-based environments.

  • Proven experience in regard to collaboration/projects with the product, research, and tech teams.

  • Experience designing user interfaces for both one app platform (iOS or Android) and responsive web.

  • Experience working with and contributing to design systems and component libraries.

  • High fidelity prototyping skills (Axure, Principle, Framer etc.).

  • Comfortable presenting to larger audiences and senior stakeholders.

  • Experience with workshop facilitation and design sprints.

  • Ability to take ownership, creatively solve problems, and proactively contribute to the objectives of the business.
