Takeaway.com is often referred to as a technology company. If you take a better look we’re actually a people company. It’s the chef in the kitchen who prepares your food. It’s the driver who picks up your sandwich at your favorite restaurant and delivers the food to your door. It are the people in the Product teams who create the tools that make all of this possible.
Designers play a big role in this process. Together with the Product Team the Designers help to shape the product. They amplify the voice of the customer into the product teams.
