Deliveroo, a global food delivery company, announced the launch of its India Engineering Centre in Hyderabad, India.
Deliveroo’s engineering team will be focused on delivering better experiences for Deliveroo customers, restaurant and grocery partners and delivery riders, and building highly scalable, reliable and innovative next-generation products for its worldwide operations.
The Engineering Centre in Hyderabad will be a core part of Deliveroo’s central technology organization. The company has started recruiting and plans to employ over 150 engineers in India from the fields of analytics, platforms, automation and machine learning by the end of 2022.
The Engineering Centre in India will be Deliveroo’s largest technology hub outside the United Kingdom, where the company is headquartered.
Deliveroo’s service is underpinned by pioneering logistics technology based on machine learning. The launch of the India Engineering Centre provides opportunities for engineers to solve business problems as Deliveroo scales and enhances its offering.

Deliveroo has hired Sashi Somavarapu as Vice President of Engineering, who will head the India Engineering Centre. He has led teams in the world’s most technologically advanced organisations, including Amazon, Jio Platforms and Ford Motor. He will be reporting to Devesh Mishra, who joined Deliveroo in 2021 as its Chief Product and Technology Officer.
