VROMO welcomes new Director of Engineering

Jun 25, 2021

We’re delighted to announce that Pádraig Howlin has joined the VROMO team as our new Director of Engineering.

As well as being a thoroughly nice fella, Pádraig has a hugely impressive track record in front-end systems and is looking forward to bringing his extensive engineering background in the online marketplace and property sectors to VROMO in the food delivery space.

Pádraig said that he sees huge potential to significantly leverage the increase in the adoption of VROMO as the delivery sector continues to grow and said: “Food delivery is an exciting and dynamic space right now, and VROMO is at the heart of that with a fantastic platform that is the world’s only dedicated software for restaurant food delivery.

“I have two clear objectives in my new role with VROMO. The first is to increase the scale, functionality and features of the platform because this constant cycle of innovation is critical in underpinning why VROMO is becoming the go-to platform for restaurant delivery. 

The second is to manage the growing team of front-end and back-end developers –even within my first week of joining VROMO, we have identified a requirement for two new roles in the team.”

Pádraig added that he had a number of offers on the table but joined VROMO because: “I really like the team – I like their energy, passion and drive. I’m also full of awe at how quickly they have developed a SaaS platform. VROMO is on the fast track to huge growth, and I’m looking forward to not only being part of that journey but playing a key role in it.”

Our CEO Alan Hickey said that the platform was conceived as a way to enable restaurants to meet consumers’ high expectations when it comes to food delivery, efficiently controlling the whole delivery experience. He added that the addition of Pádraig will enable the business to enter the next phase of growth as they look into curbside pick-up and payment opportunities through VROMO.

“We’ve already started to gain significant traction for VROMO, and everyone who has used it is hugely impressed with its functionality and management capabilities – and Pádraig’s role will be to accelerate that momentum through the constant development of the platform and managing the growing team who are already making this happen,” said Alan.

“We liked Pádraig straight away, as he gets what we’re all about at VROMO and where we want to go – in terms of both the direction of travel for the development of the platform and how we support our delivery service partners.”
