What does your job involve?
I’m part of the TakeawayPay team, which is responsible for developing a new service that will enable employers around the world to subsidize lunch for their staff. It’s what we’ve been doing here in Israel for the past 20 years, but on a global scale.
What characteristics do you need for this role?
You need to be curious while programming, to get excited about trying new ideas and ways of solving problems. This happens when you enjoy what you’re doing.
What do you like about working at Takeaway.com?
I really like the fact that we are building something from scratch, and of course to see my work come to life. Aside from the professional challenges, there is a family atmosphere here. Work is important, but there’s a good balance. For example, I never give up on spending one afternoon a week with my son, and everyone respects that.
Which tools do you use?
I work with ReactJS, Nodejs, git, Azure and Java - to name the main ones.
What is your vision for our future as a company?
I am working with some incredibly talented people. We are working on great things, and I believe we will keep on innovating in new ways that we don’t even know yet. I also see us expanding more and more as a team.
The first thing you do when you arrive at the office:
I make myself a toasted cheese sandwich!
What can we find at your desk?
All the regular stuff developers have. Also mechanical keyboard pops...and most importantly, pictures of my wife and my son.
What do you usually order for lunch?
It varies between a salad, schnitzel or a nice stir-fried dish.

I used to be a mountain climber. Now I’m a father and most of the time I just want to get some sleep!
