It was announced yesterday that Flipdish will be creating 300 Irish jobs over the next two years.
The Irish digital food-ordering solution company says that 100 of those roles were created in 2020 as part of rapid expansion experienced by Flipdish during the pandemic. The remaining 200 roles will be filled by December 2021, with 50 roles being hired for immediately.
The new jobs are mainly technology roles such as software engineers, engineering managers, software architects, data scientists, mobile engineers and product designers. Other roles being recruited include customer success, customer support, marketing and sales.
Flipdish is headquartered in Dublin and operates in 15 countries including the UK, US, France and Germany. In Ireland, it provides its technology to well known brands like Eddie Rockets, Press Up Group, Base Pizza and Bombay Pantry.
Flipdish also partners with Manna, the Irish drone delivery company. Flipdish’s online ordering system currently connects Manna with Tesco and other outlets in ongoing drone delivery trials in Oranmore, Co. Galway.
The company offers equity to all employees, as well as attractive opportunities for promotion.
Welcoming the news, Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and Employment, Leo Varadkar said, "This is very welcome news and another great example of an Irish company adapting quickly to the changes brought about by Covid. More and more of us are ordering online from our favourite take-aways and restaurants. It’s great that there is an Irish company behind it all. Flipdish has seen significant growth in 2020, enabling thousands of businesses in the hard-hit hospitality sector to pivot to online ordering systems. I wish them the very best of luck with this latest expansion, which will see 300 new jobs over the next two years."
Co-Founder and CEO of Flipdish, Conor McCarthy added, "Hiring 200 roles next year looks different than it has in the past for us. We are reimagining what the workspace looks like for Flipdish in 2021. We know that the in-person office job is over but our focus is now on finding the best talent regardless."
