Job Description

About Nando’s Technology :

Five years ago, the technology team played a largely tactical role in supporting and maintaining the tills and back of house functions.

Roll the clock forward, and tech is now firmly at the centre of the strategic narrative of the business where we :

  • Evolve & maintain the effectiveness of business activity through tech-enablement and automation.
  • Create digital competitive advantage through nurturing deep technical capability.
  • Unlock new business models by harnessing the disruptive force of technology.
  • The impact we seek is even more aspirational, with us looking to inspire people through technology. Whether those people are our customers and Nandocas (our name for our employees), our partners with whom we co-create, others across the restaurant sector, and even working on consumer experiences at large who are inspired to follow- that’s our purpose.

    The last year has been an incredible catalyst for change, compressing the arrival of digital in our customer experiences into a matter of months which might have otherwise taken years.

    This is just the start, though. The customer’s mobile phone might well be accepted around a Nando’s meal, but it is far from being appreciated with digital experiences all but beginning to tap into the higher-order emotional states of our customers.

    We also have many exciting opportunities internally, without which the customer experiences will only hit a glass ceiling, and business growth will be constrained.

    Many of the technologies which are widely adopted in both advanced and scaled-up manufacturing facilities are becoming viable in smaller-scale environments, such as restaurants.

    We’re watching the rapidly changing landscape carefully while testing and learning

    Why not join us and solve some of today's most complex hospitality problems by creating innovative solutions using an open technology toolset.
