BackEnd Node Developer
up-to £80,000

It can often sound like a cliche to hear about businesses that was formed by an owner who ‘had nothing’ and built if from the ground up. It is not until you look inside Foodhub you see what this really means. Foodhub was the idea of Ardian Mula, who taught himself to code on a laptop that was handed down to him, which developed a passion for technology. That technology now drives a global Tech business, which Ardian still leads from the front every-day.

Many Developers and Engineers will be able to relate starting their coding journey this way. Imagine joining a global business, where the founder can relate through person experience.

Technology sits at the heart of who and what Foodhub are. They are business which operates across the hospitality sector, whether you be a restaurant, or the newest pop-up takeaway. Foodhub is fast becoming the new kid on the block when it comes to the online portal for consumers and businesses alike.
