Our story

Our mission is to be the definitive online food company. 

We are transforming the way the world eats by making food more convenient and accessible. We want to be the definitive food company - the app you go to any time you have a hunger pang. We are providing people with limitless access to different cuisines and restaurants, turning cooking from a chore to a choice, and giving people the freedom to eat what they want when they want, where they want it.

Our journey began with our founder Will, arriving in London and finding it almost impossible to order great food, despite living in one of the world’s best cities for food. In 2013 he got on his bike and founded Deliveroo. 

Fast forward to today and Deliveroo can be found in 11 markets, with over 150,000 riders delivering orders from over 140,000 restaurants and stores serving millions of customers in hundreds of cities worldwide. 

The size of the opportunity ahead of us is immense. Only 3% of the global food market is online. Contrast that with the digital disruption of other industries, such as travel (45% online) and retail (10%), and it is clear we are at the very beginning of our journey. Despite being one of the world’s fastest growing multi-billion dollar companies, we’re only just getting started. 

We hope you’re as excited about the scale of the opportunity as we are and, if you share our ambition, that you’ll join us and be part of this incredible story.

Our passion for continuous innovation would not be possible without collaboration between teams and the shared understanding that all voices are heard. Our success relies entirely on the wealth of unique ideas and perspectives our people share openly each day. We encourage everyone to show up as their authentic selves and help drive us toward our mission. This commitment to inclusion supports our community of colleagues to leave their mark within our organisation and outside of it.
