Software Engineer - Contract



A bit about us...

Ask people where Nando's comes from and you'll get a different answer every time. Portugal? Mexico? The UK? Our story actually starts in Rosettenville, a Portuguese neighbourhood in Johannesburg, South Africa. With stops in Mozambique and the UK along the way.


It was 1987 and Robbie Brozin and Fernando Duarte opened their first chicken restaurant. Then another. And then another. Fast forward five years and Nando's landed in the UK. Now, with over 480 restaurants (and counting), our PERi-PERi is a bestselling hot sauce and Nando's has become as big a part of culture as drinking tea.


We've got a growing family of 20,000 Nandocas (what we call our employees), fuelled by our values: Pride, Passion, Integrity, Courage and Family. We care as much about them as we do our legendary, flame-grilled PERi-PERi - because it's the people that make the chicken.


Inspired by our Southern African heritage, we know and value the richness diversity brings. So we're committed to creating an inclusive and respectful culture for all. We've even been recognised as one of the industry leaders by the Financial Times.
