Do you like back-end development and are you a fan of Python? Can you imagine yourself, arriving every morning at an office full of energy and driven people, getting ready to scale a software platform to the whole world? Then read further and find out why we believe our startup in Ghent will be the ideal place for you.
We are Deliverect, a startup from Ghent solving a huge pain that restaurants currently have with handling incoming food-delivery orders. You may not believe it, but restaurants still have to manually handle the orders from each different ordering platform separately (Uber Eats, Takeaway.com, Deliveroo, etc.) The result? Mistakes, stressed employees, messed up orders, and dissatisfied customers - but no more: With our platform, we fix all of these analogue problems and bring restaurants up to the speed of the digital world.
Our young and international team currently counts more than +180 ambitious enthusiasts who work, innovate, and celebrate success together. We have experienced founders with a huge network and track record and already some of the biggest chains that are working with us. And we are excited to continue to grow a lot in the months to come.
