About The Opportunity

Got a taste for something new?
We’re Grubhub, the nation’s leading online and mobile food ordering company. Since 2004 we’ve been connecting hungry diners to the local restaurants they love. We’re moving eating forward with no signs of slowing down.
With more than 80,000 restaurants and over 14 million diners across 1,600 U.S. cities and London, we’re delivering like never before. Incredible tech is our bread and butter, but amazing people are our secret ingredient. Rigorously analytical and customer-obsessed, our employees develop the fresh ideas and brilliant programs that keep our brands going and growing.
Long story short, keeping our people happy, challenged and well-fed is priority one. Interested? Let’s talk. We’re eager to show you what we bring to the table.

  • Take a problem, break it down, find commonalities that will enable wins cross business units
  • Collaborate with the right people to define and refine scope and priorities
  • Doing deep dives on business verticals where you become one of the foremost experts on that vertical in the company

  • Excellent communication skills, including the ability to crystallize and broadly socialize insights
  • Problem analysis and problem-solving skills
  • Proficiency in working with and solving for our business stakeholders
