Job description

Yumpingo is a food intelligence business that provides deep insights to restaurants based on real-time reviews from diners, collected through our devices at the end of the meal. We already have a fleet of devices being used by consumers right now in some of the most well known branded restaurants in London, including Jamie’s Italian and Wahaca.

About you

We’re looking for someone to lead the technical development of our consumer-facing Android app and tablet devices.

The core Yumpingo product is a bespoke  Android tablet we own and manage, running only our Yumpingo app. Using this, diners complete a 1-minute review, focused on their food, at the end of the meal when they receive their bill.

Our current product is stable and collects diner reviews at high volume: up to 40% of tables take part. But really we’ve just scratched the surface. You will help us improve the app with the goal of soliciting reviews from as many diners as possible in new, fun and engaging ways that make them want to part the next time too.

As we own our devices, the app only needs to support a small number of models running Android 7 and 6. This means you will not be bogged down by having to support a wide variety of screen sizes and Android versions.

We have a roadmap of innovative new app features that we are ready to embark on that you would lead which we will share with you when we talk.

Our goal is to manage a fleet of 100,000 devices by the end of next year. To make that happen you’ll be developing our nascent device fleet management system, enabling us to control our devices remotely. Beyond that, you’ll be actively involved in device procurement decisions and in the design of bespoke, Yumpingo-branded hardware.

Beyond our core product, our strategy includes integrations with a number of third party apps and services, and a publicly available app for diners’ own devices.

We’re looking for someone technically astute that’s able to communicate with other team members and execs in the business. The opportunity is to shape and build a product used by millions of diners around the world, and help restaurants serve more food people love.


  • Competitive salary
  • Remote working
  • Generous annual leave
  • Options

Hard requirements to apply:

  • 5+ years of Android experience
  • At least 1 app in the Play Store
  • Based in the UK or EU
  • Right to work in the UK (we cannot sponsor visas)

Nice to have:

  • Firebase
  • Working knowledge of AWS

The recruitment process

After you submit your CV, we’ll send you a few short screening questions by email. The next step is an initial video interview. The final stage is to come and meet the team in the office.


You can apply via Stack Overflow or by email to [email protected]. With your application, please include:

  • your CV
  • some links to products you’ve worked on in the past
  • a few words about why you'd like to work with us

If you have any questions at all, just send us an email and we’ll happily have a chat with you.

We don’t work with 3rd party recruiters so please don’t get in touch if that’s you.


Life at Yumpingo

About Yumpingo

Yumpingo is bringing big data to the restaurant industry, with a deeper and broader knowledge of what people eat, where and when, than any other source. Over the last 18 months we have built a food intelligence platform for restaurants that captures more live diner reviews than any other. Our mission is to enable the world to find, serve and share more food we love.

Over the last year we have established our B2B SaaS platform delivering unique dish-level insights at unprecedented scale. Guests complete our 1-minute review at the end of the meal, either on Yumpingo devices, which replace traditional bill presenters, or on their own device. We help restaurants and groups to develop new dishes, improve consistency across venues, optimise food quality, increase margins and enhance their marketing. We’re already working with some of the leading restaurant brands in the UK.

Other than that, we’re a friendly and passionate bunch of engineers, data scientists and food experts based in Covent Garden, London, who are working together to help the world serve better food.
