Country platforms maintained by team in Ukraine

Challenge

Just Eat plc (incorporated in the UK) is the world’s leading online takeaway ordering service, operating in Belgium, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, France, India, Ireland, the Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.

Just Eat came to Ciklum to augment their London development team by tapping into Kyiv’s highly regarded talent pool.

Situation

There are currently over 36,000 takeaway restaurants signed up to Just Eat, which uses a robust technology platform to offer an efficient online ordering service.

Just Eat wanted to scale effectively without the UK team losing focus of the evolution of the core products and platform.

The company realised it could not recruit staff quickly enough to meet the demands of its expanding business, which is built on e-commerce platforms.

Just Eat needed to build its software team quickly and wanted the right mix of engineering skills, culture, time zone and cost.

We started the relationship by tasking the initial small group of Ukraine-based staff on low risk projects, but due to the project’s success some of Just Eats’ entire country platforms are run from Kyiv
