Software Development Engineer

The Zonal group are one of the UK’s largest technology providers to the hospitality industry. 
Our products are used by over 11,000 pubs, restaurants and hotels.  Customers include national brands like Pizza Express, JD Wetherspoons and All Bar One.  
We provide our customers with the solutions they need to make their business a success.  
These solutions include mobile apps for ordering and web apps for engaging with consumers either through loyalty or reservations. 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.  

If you have booked a table or hotel room, ordered, and paid for food and drinks, received loyalty offers, or downloaded your favourite hang out’s app, you will likely have used a Zonal product. 

We are a family business with Scottish roots. We operate from our modern head office in Edinburgh to our Marketing Technologies Division in Staffordshire, or our Innovation Centre in Abingdon and hotel management solutions base in Cardiff.
