Who are we?
Flyt, part of the Just Eat Takeaway Group, is a technology platform designed to connect the world’s largest food delivery company to big restaurant brands everywhere. Chances are, if you have ordered food on your phone you have touched our technology.
Today, we’re a global company, with our technology being deployed across Europe, North America and Australasia, and with team members in six countries. Yet we’re still human-scale: everyone can get to know everyone, and we are structured to ensure every team has a strong sense of community and autonomy on how to hit their goals.
Flyt is organised in small, cross-functional, autonomous teams we call squads. Each one of our squads owns an area of the product end-to-end and is responsible for meeting a business goal. Same principles as the Spotify model, but customised to what works for us.
Collaborating Together, Inspiring Excellent Results! At Flyt, we value five key areas - Care, Transparency, Individual Leadership, Enthusiasm and Results Achievement which we embrace and use to define ourselves. These values enable us with the guiding principles to make our own choices.
We are on the lookout for a remote developer to join the team at Flyt.
Experience in Golang is essential and you must love being autonomous in a small team.
