Deliverect is a swiftly growing Software as a Service (SaaS) startup that aims to simplify the online delivery process for restaurants. The Ghent-based company was co-founded by Zhong Xu and Jan Hollez in April 2018 and has now grown very quickly to 1000’s of customers and more than 80 employees. Deliverect has developed an amazing Delivery services aggregation platform that connects all food ordering and delivery channels for restaurants and is about to massively disrupt the HORECA sector.

In order to support its further growth and international expansion, Deliverect now wishes to hire its first Legal Counsel.

  • Review, draft, negotiate and advise on a wide range of commercial agreements including complex IT, software and data protection related agreements.
     
  • Provide legal guidance on a wide range of topics, including IP/IT law, data protection, corporate governance and insurance policies.
