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.
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.
Just Eat chose Ciklum as a digital partner because of the optimal balance of time zones, travel time, availability of engineering talent and value. Ciklum is culturally aligned with Just Eat, the team in Kyiv has an excellent relationship with the Just Eat team. They are familiar with Just Eat’s tools and processes and speak the same languages.
Just Eat also benefits by regularly exchanging ideas and experiences with Ciklum’s thriving client community as part of an effective, long term collaboration.
