Flipdish builds consumer mobile applications for thousands of restaurants, used by their millions of customers. The application they use to order their favourite food is a direct interface between the end customer and our clients’ brand. It’s arguably the most critical touchpoint for any modern business, and we need you to help take that essential interaction to the next level. Flipdish has seen extraordinary growth in the last 12 months including investment of €40m from Tiger Global. We expect to double our workforce in the next 18 months.
