Celebrating the women making a difference at Flipdish
When Flipdish was founded in 2015 there were no women on the team. Just two brothers on a mission to build a great product and company.
Today Flipdish employs more than 90 staff, 30 of whom are women. As a tech company, a 2:1 ratio is pretty good. However, we plan to double our staff numbers in 2020 so watch this space.
Our female staff work across a range of departments including software engineering, sales, marketing, finance, HR, customer support and customer success. They come from a broad spectrum of backgrounds and nationalities including The Netherlands, Trinidad and Tobago, China, India, Argentina, Spain, Poland, France, Brazil and Panama.
We foster an inclusive workplace culture by offering flexible hours, remote working and opportunities to grow within the business.
We’d like to introduce you to some of the amazing women making a difference at Flipdish.

Tell us one woman in the food industry who inspires you and why?
"I’m going to cheat and say two - my customers Emma Sheehan and Yvette Fidgeon from Bombay Pantry. They are intelligent and ambitious women who run a very successful Indian restaurant and takeaway business in a very challenging, male dominated industry. They are smart, strong and kind, a winning combination in my mind." Read more
