About the job
The Data & Science Org
At Deliveroo, we have a world-class data science organisation with a mission to enable the highest quality human and machine decision-making. We work throughout the company – in product, business and platform teams to answer some of the most interesting questions out there. For example, how do data and technology help restaurants to grow as consumer habits change? How can we predict what someone wants to order for dinner long before the idea has even crossed their mind? At Deliveroo, these are just some of the tough problems we are solving – and there is no challenge that cannot be yours. No solution is owned by a particular team, which means the scope for growth and personal impact is enormous.
