Cultivate Edinburgh, which specialises in the creation of bespoke web applications, first engaged with Deliveroo in 2016. It is now providing a number of its own software engineers to work closely with key members of the delivery-giant’s technology team.
Andy Robinson, Cultivate’s Commercial Director, said: “We are thrilled to be supporting Deliveroo through such an impressive period of growth. We do our best work partnering with teams where high quality software is paramount and this partnership is a perfect example of that. Deliveroo and Cultivate share a passion for creating the highest quality products for our customers and we are pleased to bring our experience to the table on such a high profile platform.”
Dan Webb, VP of Engineering at Deliveroo, said: “As a British-born technology company, we’re really proud to be partnering with Cultivate, who are providing world-leading expertise that has been homegrown here in the UK. Cultivate has been a fantastic partner for us – their team has integrated seamlessly into ours and we’re excited for them to be part of our continued work to build world-leading technology that means we can provide the very best service for our customers, restaurants and riders.”
