Senior Front-End Developer (React/React.Native)

Job description

Who are we?

We are Deliverect! A startup from Ghent helping restaurants handle delivery orders.

Why restaurants love us: Rather than manually handling orders from each food delivery platform separately, they can manage all of their orders and menus from the Deliverect hub. This saves them time, money, worries and gives their customers a quicker, smoother experience!

Who we work with: Food delivery platforms such as Deliveroo, Uber Eats, Delivery Hero and customers such as Five Guys, Burger King, KFC and your local mom and pop takeaway too!

Our team: 180+ champions innovating from our Ghent HQ and offices across Europe, North America, South America and the Middle East. We have experienced founders with a huge network and track record. With significant funding, we are at scale-up stage expanding our team to service customers in even more countries - this is why we need you!
