Who We Are

In May 2011 Niklas Östberg (the guy with the pizza) founded Delivery Hero and began his journey of building the global leader in online food ordering. His founding team, completed by members of Team Europe, shared decades of knowledge of working with internet companies. Likewise important, they shared a vision for the future of online food ordering. Together with a hand-picked, passionate team they managed to truly catapult the business to where it is today.

Delivery Hero and its headquarters are located in Berlin, boasting 1000 employees in HQ alone. Diversity is a key pillar for our success. Employees with over 70 nationalities across 5 continents work for us, enabling us to exchange best practice from markets from each corner of the world.

Fortunately, we are not the only ones who believe in our vision to transform the industry. The business is backed by first-tier investors, and we are happy to see a very positive development of our stock price. One year after our trading debut, on 30 June 2018, the share has gained more than 70% compared to the issue price.
