About the team

The Experience Team defines how our customers, riders, restaurants, and employees interact with Deliveroo's products and services end-to-end.

Based throughout London and the greater UK, our diverse team has global impact. We cook up accessible, localised, and inclusive products for customers in Singapore, riders in France, grocery chains in Qatar, restaurant kitchens in Dubai—and beyond. Our user-focus guides us as we build the definitive online food company together.

We're hiring a Staff Product Designer to join our Headquarters in London. We're a hybrid-first workplace based in London. You will report into Senior Design leadership. Benefits include flexible working and a performance bonus.

What you'll be doing

  • Design and evolve high-level design patterns, UI kits, guidelines, and custom tooling. Balance product needs and technical feasibility to build a scalable, usable system.
  • Ensure that everyone is equipped to adopt design systems as they grow. Communicate changes and updates, gathering feedback to adjust the system, and unblocking designers as they run into issues.
  • Champion consistency, a high degree of UI craft, and the inclusion of illustration and animation in our products.
  • Lead regular meetings for planning and critique of design work.
  • Partner with UI engineers who develop design systems in code.
  • Support cross-team initiatives that make the Experience practice at Deliveroo better - such as improving our hiring process, expanding our community presence, interviewing potential new team members, and more.

Requirements

  • You enjoy thinking through complex product challenges and care about solving the right problem
  • Have a well trained eye for great visual design execution. You care about getting things right - one pixel off is a big deal.
  • Take a strategic view to everything you do - your work stands the test of time
  • Are fantastic at communicating your thinking and design decisions - you're able to get people along on the journey with you
  • Are well versed at working with disciplines in your work to achieve the best outcome, such as user research, content and engineering.
  • Enjoy mentoring others in their professional development as designers
  • Have several years' experience in an individual contributor role on a product design team.
  • You have mentored and contributed to up-skilling those around you.

Why Deliveroo

Our mission is to be the definitive food company. We are transforming the way the world eats by making food more convenient and accessible. We give people the opportunity to eat what they want, as they want it, when and where they want it.

We are a technology-driven company at the forefront of the most rapidly expanding industry in the world. We are still a small team, making a very large impact, looking to answer some of the most interesting questions out there. We move fast, value autonomy and ownership, and we are always looking for new ideas.

Workplace & Diversity

At Deliveroo we know that people are the heart of the business and we prioritise their welfare. We offer a wide range of competitive benefits in areas including health, family, finance, community, convenience, growth, time away and relocation.

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 startups in an incredibly exciting space.
