Android Developer

Zonal Marketing Technologies is a digital agency, and part of the Zonal group. Our DNA is that of a fast-moving start-up, but we have the clout and connections of the UK’s largest provider of technology to the hospitality industry. We work with brands like PizzaExpress, JD Weatherspoons and All Bar One on everything from apps, order & pay, digital vouchers and loyalty to online bookings and table management. By linking these solutions to Zonal’s EPoS (till) system, we help hospitality brands to understand their customers’ behaviour and preferences, enabling them to excel in an increasingly competitive market.

Working in a hugely innovative area, the Mobile team at ZMT are building products that are revolutionising the hospitality industry. By giving customers the ability to order and pay through their mobile without ever getting up from their table, brands are able to satisfy customer demand for slicker service and frictionless payment. What’s more, these customers also spend more of their hard-earned cash, so it’s no wonder this technology is seen as a game-changer.

We’re looking for a dynamic individual who shares our passion for driving innovation and using technology to build better businesses. We’re going on an exciting journey, and we need more like-minded travellers to help us get there! We’re serious about innovation, service and delivery but we also know how to have fun along the way!
