Just Eat is looking to hire an exceptional UI Designer to join our Product Development Team and help drive the design and visual direction of our products and services.

all in an effort to help make our partners successful and our customers get their yummy food faster.
Over the past year, we have been working incredibly hard to transform our products and services to make them better than ever before -
and we are just getting started. Now, we are looking for someone else to join us on our journey and help take our products to the next level.
At Just Eat, we work in cross functional teams made up of UI Designers, UX Designers, Product Managers and Engineers. The way we work is collaborative and fast paced.
