  • Advanced understanding of RESTful APIs for seamless data communication between the mobile app and Deliverect's backend systems, crucial for functionalities like order management, inventory updates, and real-time data synchronisation.
  • Ability to design and implement features that work effectively even with limited or no internet connectivity, ensuring restaurant staff can manage orders in areas with unreliable internet access.
  • Adherence to industry-standard secure coding practices to safeguard sensitive information handled by the app, including restaurant orders, customer data, and payment details.
  • Emphasis on optimising the mobile app's performance for smooth operation on various mobile devices used in restaurants, ensuring a fast and responsive user experience.
