Delivery Hero

July 21, 2021


foodpanda is on an ambitious mission - curating and delivering Germany’s best neighborhood restaurants, stores and groceries right to the door.
We're changing the delivery landscape in Germany by providing everything people want and need, fast, and from one app. From favorite restaurants, to fresh groceries and local shops, we are connecting people to their neighborhoods in a completely new way.
We wouldn't be able to do this without an amazing network of dedicated riders, passionate partners and driven employees from across the globe. We’re looking to hire our first team-mates, to join our founding team as we kick off our journey to become Germany’s first choice for delivery.
Our parent company, Delivery Hero, is a global leader in the food delivery industry processing over 663 million orders in Q1 2021 and operating in 50+ markets in the world, with 29,000 employees and approximately 700,000 riders globally.
