The online takeaway service is expanding its technology development operations with the opening of a new specialist hub in Bristol.
Just Eat already has a development centre in London, where it develops its e-commerce and back-end systems.
The new office, which will initially be based at Bristol’s Engine Shed, will work closely with Just Eat’s London-based technology team.
The Bristol site expands its development footprint with mobile and point of sale system work.
Daniel Richardson, director of engineering at Just Eat, said: "In Bristol, we will focus software development on native apps for iOS, Android and Windows."

The company is also planning to develop the electronic point of sale (Epos) system it acquired when it bought Meals2Go earlier this year.
The Meals2Go system provides an Epos for takeaway food services. It is being expanded to create a central takeaway food ordering system across the participating restaurants in Just Eat's network.
"We want to build on this platform and roll it out to a greater proportion of our restaurants," Richardson said.
The Meals2Go Epos allows takeaway restaurants to track customers’ ordering habits, which they can use to help improve customer service and marketing efficiency.
The Bristol office will initially be staffed by 10-15 employees, with a view to expand to up to 30 employees by the end of 2015.
