In the last year, our Restaurant Partner Solutions (RPS) vertical faced a massive cultural change when our containers orchestration migrated from ECS to EKS. Currently, YAML+terraform is the language spoken in our tribe. Before that, we used to speak JSON+cloudformation and it would take roughly one week to create a new service. Since our migration to EKS, we are able to create the service in a matter of hours and our developers are more empowered as we promote the “you build it, you run it” ethos.
The AI Ukraine conference had its fifth annual gathering at the end of September 2019, and Delivery Hero was out in full force to attract some of the Ukraine’s brightest data scientists.

Having experienced various forms of agility – ranging from companies who only use Scrum ceremonies as a reporting mechanism, to companies who actually live the agile mindset, get the philosophy behind it and have a shippable product after every iteration and everything in between – I have to say that Delivery Hero understands the agile mindset.
At Delivery Hero we are committed to invest in areas where automation, AI and advanced analytics can boost our business performance. One of the key applications for these techniques is marketing – for example we can automate the creation and execution of many of our marketing initiatives and forecast the impact of marketing campaigns, allowing our marketing teams to spend their time and money in the most efficient way.
