A little bit about talabat
talabat is the leading online food and groceries ordering platform in MENA, operating in 9 countries across the region. Founded in 2004 by a small group of entrepreneurs in Kuwait, talabat’s success expanded to the rest of the GCC region, Egypt & Jordan, making it the largest and most popular food ordering app. With over 2,000+ employees and millions of users, we deliver hundreds of thousands of orders every day.
We are part of the Delivery Hero network building the next generation of online delivery platforms across the globe. Our network is truly international with engineering teams in 13 countries and operations in 40+ countries.
A little bit about our engineering culture
We love finding new ways to shorten the feedback loops, create together and make an impact. To do so, our engineering culture and practices are based on eXtreme Programming (XP) , Domain-Driven Design , Lean and Continuous Delivery .
We believe that the assumption behind the “Speed vs Quality” mindset is flawed and that you can both have your cake and eat it too. For us, quality enables speed. Not in 2 years, but now.
Co-creating together with others through Pair and Mob programming helps us deliver more value sooner and find joy in our work by seeking productive human connections with others.
We find that engineers seeking to understand our product and business better understand the context of their work, which helps them to innovate, deliver more value to their customers and find more purpose in their work.
Alongside other engineers and members of your team (product, data), participate in continuous discovery of your customer/business needs/desires/problems to drive desired outcomes
With guidance from other engineers, design, write and release software as a solution to an end-to-end problem in your business domain and deliver value in small batches in accordance with our engineering standards
Participate in optimization of your team’s practices to develop it into a self-organized, continuously improving unit
Seek mentorship to become a product engineer capable of solving a business problem, end-to-end
