Manager, Product Design at Grubhub
Here at Grubhub we’ve been dedicated to giving diners the most convenient way to order food from their favorite restaurants (whether that’s a late night Chalupa from Taco Bell or a salad for lunch from a local restaurant the day after they enjoyed said late night Chalupa).
While we are food-obsessed, we are also customer-obsessed. We look to constantly innovate our technology so our diners’ food experience is memorable, restaurant owners get more business and individuals across the country looking for part-time work can deliver the food from the restaurant to the diner flawlessly. We take great pride in knowing that we are a part of 19+ million diners food ordering experience and we are partnered with 115,000 restaurants in 2,200 US cities across our suite of apps (Grubhub, LevelUp, Seamless, Tapingo).
Want to be a part of the biggest movement in the US that is moving eating forward? If so, we want to talk to you - and hear what’s your favorite restaurant for food delivery!

- Frame user-centered problems and business needs in a way that teams can respond to
- Advocate for our internal users in high-level strategic decisions with business, product, engineering, and members of the Design team
- Guide teams in the practice of turning nebulous concepts to specific ideas into useful, delightful product features

- Partner with product, engineers, and the members of the Design and Research teams to oversee the user experience of a product from conception until launch
