Who are we?

Flyt is a technology platform designed to connect the world’s top food delivery companies with the world’s largest restaurant brands. 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 Australia, 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.

  • Sharing new standards and best practices with the wider engineering team
  • Helping decide the best next thing to do so you meet your quarterly team goals
  • Taking full ownership of your microservices: from coding and testing them to running them once they’re live
Working with us

You’ll love working here if:

  • You can’t wait to roll up your sleeves and build a great product with a dedicated team
  • You love having a goal, and having the autonomy to decide the best way to go for it
  • You obsess over personal growth. Feedback, Coaching, Learning, Teaching.
  • You like to communicate transparently (all our #slack channels are public!), and are willing to listen to your peers, earn trust and show up curious
