Deliveroo To Create Dozens Of New Highly Skilled Tech Jobs In Edinburgh

Deliveroo has announced plans which will see the food delivery firm create dozens of new jobs in Edinburgh.

The company will create around 70 new positions at a new headquarters in Edinburgh this April.

Deliveroo already employs around 30 staff at its existing HQ on the CodeBase technology park Edinburgh but is set to treble its headcount in the Scottish city when it relocates in three month’s time.

The company says that the 70 new jobs will be highly skilled tech roles such as designers, data scientists, product managers and software engineers. The new Edinburgh recruits will help Deliveroo to boost support for their delivery riders.

Announcing the new Scottish jobs, Deliveroo’s engineering vice president, Dan Winn, said: “Deliveroo is proud to set out our expansion plans for our Edinburgh tech hub in 2020. Our aim is to create 70 high-skilled jobs and launch a new Edinburgh-based tech HQ in April 2020. This is the company’s first UK tech office outside of London and reflects the strength of the tech sector and the scale of our ambition for Edinburgh.”

“Edinburgh is one of the UK’s fastest growing tech hubs, with access to an excellent talent pool of high skilled people and university graduates. We are excited to build on the expertise of Cultivate [an Edinburgh software firm which Deliveroo recently acquired] to develop cutting-edge products and services from our new office.”

“These new products will improve rider experience and help restaurants grow their businesses, with a particular focus on small businesses,” added Mr Winn.

Kate Forbes, the digital economy minister for Scotland, welcomed the announcement, saying: “I am pleased that Deliveroo has chosen Edinburgh as the base for its new flagship HQ, its first UK tech office outside of London. This brings exciting employment and digital skills opportunities, helping us achieve our ambition for Scotland to be a world-class digital nation.”

“Scotland has a proud tradition as a digital leader and the Scottish Government is putting digital technology at the heart of everything we do. Digital technologies are forecast to be the fastest growing sector by 2024 and will play a leading role in the future of our economy,” added Ms Forbes.
