The Experience team defines how our customers, riders, restaurants, grocers, and employees interact with Deliveroo’s products. Foundational to that work is a best-in-class design system and tooling.

As an Engineer on the Design Systems team, you and your teammates will co-create the Design System with Deliveroo’s community of engineers and designers. You’ll grow your technical leadership skills and will be responsible for the system’s high-quality execution on iOS.

On a day-to-day basis you will...

  • Collaborate with your team and Deliveroo’s community of designers and engineers to improve Design System features and tooling.
  • Write documentation, oversee processes, and facilitate standards to provide product teams with simplified ways to build great products quickly.
  • Understand the impact of your work on Deliveroo’s customers, partners, engineers, designers, and business through research and metrics.
  • Use what you learn to make tangible improvements to the system and how it’s used.
  • Shape the design system strategy and vision to support our customer experience, product, and business goals.
  • Foster a sense of community so everyone feels ownership of and influence on the system and how it evolves.

What you’ll work on

  • Deliveroo’s Design System is used across our entire product platform, which means you’ll be exposed to many areas of our business. This includes our...
  • Rider apps
  • Products for our Restaurants & Grocers
  • Our suite of Consumer products
  • Internal Tools to help us provide better customer service
  • This role is for you if you...
  • Have strong communication skills. You are open and you have a “here to help” mindset. You flex your EQ (Emotional Quotient) so your messages are heard and are informed by different perspectives.
  • Enjoy collaboration. You believe in the power of collective intelligence and work across disciplines to harness the best ideas from  diverse groups of bright minds.
  • Love solving problems. You persevere when thinking through complex technical challenges. You care about solving the right problem and can be both methodical and playful in your approach.
  • Appreciate design. You like to work within the presentation layer and care about accessibility, colour, typography, motion design, and iOS platform conventions.
  • Think strategically. You are forward-thinking and your work stands the test of time. You make informed, pragmatic trade-offs as necessary with the end goal always in mind.
  • Enjoy learning and mentoring. You are humble, curious, and are comfortable guiding others in their own technical and professional growth.
  • Have a great appetite. We love eating!

Desired experience

  • We’re looking for unique perspectives from varied backgrounds that add something new to our team. You’d nicely round-out our team if you have...
  • Deep knowledge of iOS UI patterns and guidelines.
  • Worked in a cross-disciplinary team of engineers and designers.
  • Experience developing and shipping design systems and design systems tooling.
  • Experience at a high-growth company with an international footprint.
  • Experience with Swift and SwiftUI.
  • Worked with UIKit and AutoLayout.
  • Experience with iOS development tools such as Xcode.
  • A broad range of skills covering the entire design systems development process—from design systems foundations and component creation, through to governance models and community-building practises.

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, 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, seeking to answer some of the most interesting questions out there. We move fast, value autonomy and ownership, and are always looking for new ideas.

Workplace & Diversity

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

We believe a great workplace 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.
