Grubhub solidified its presence in Philadelphia on Monday morning. Standing next to Mayor Jim Kenney, Grubhub’s CTO Maria Belousova and Chief Product Officer Sam hall ceremoniously cut the ribbon to a 15,000 square-foot office in Philadelphia’s city center. Once scattered at five different offices around the city, the Grubhub team will all be working under one roof.
In 2017 Grubhub nabbed around 30 staffers from the dismantled delivery startup, Zoomer, and they’re still a big part of the company according to Belousova. She added that the new downtown office will help keep its staffing pipeline full.
“Many of those folks are still here and doing exciting work,” said Belousova. “It’s not a surprise, with over 100 colleges and universities, the talent pool here is outstanding. I can’t wait to start putting amazing technical talent in engineering, data science, systems engineering and operations here in this space.”
CPO Sam Hall also chimed in on the excitement of the company’s new office.
“Philly just had the right mix of factors,” he said. “The location is incredibly accessible. The restaurant scene is lively. And these cheesesteaks are a great perk as well.”
