As the data needs are bidirectional, meaning the data is both needed from other teams across the organization and be sent out for the downstream teams to consume, the team employs strong backend engineering architecture that includes REST services. The team thus comprises competitive Data Scientists, Data Engineers and a Business Analyst, who continuously improve and enrich our data which is consumed by various downstream systems, in addition to the front end with the help of Backend Engineers.

Lieferando is an application (web & mobile) that allows you to order food at restaurants online. Lieferando.de is part of Takeaway.com. Takeaway.com is the leading food-order site in continental Europe. It all began at a party in 2000, when Jitse Groen, who was still a student at the time, came up with the idea for a website after he discovered that he could not use the Internet to order food easily. He registered the domain name under 'Thuisbezorgd.nl'​ the very next day. Today, we process millions of orders a month. Jitse Groen being the CEO. We operate in The Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, Poland, Austria, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Portugal, Bulgaria, Romania and Israel. Takeaway.com is a dynamic and vibrant company that is still growing rapidly. Each day, dozens of changes occur that call for an agile response. This means quickly changing gears between the various offices and departments. A great deal of effort is made every day not only to maintain our position in the various countries, but also to reinforce it. In addition to working hard, we also know the importance of socializing, having a laugh and sharing a drink. Would you like to be a part of the Takeaway.com team and make a difference?
