Workplace and Diversity
We believe a great workplace is one that represents the world we live in and 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 gender, race, sexuality, religion or a secret aversion to coriander. All you need is a passion for (most) food and a desire to be part of one of the fastest growing start-ups around.
At Deliveroo, we believe that our employees are our most valuable asset. We are committed to providing a comprehensive benefits package that supports their well-being, financial security, and work-life balance.
