  • "There’s a big difference between saying that you’re making good in the world and actually doing it. For me, Cookpad is one of the very few companies I’ve found that actually does what it says."

    Elena, Head of Design

    "You’ve got to be collaborative. I’m not kidding when I say collaboration is key because you’ll find yourself working with Engineers, Designers, Data Analysts, Community teams and users from more than 70 different countries and cultures, and 30+ languages, each with very different needs."

    Dilla, Product Manager

    "If you want to work a 9–5 job, tick the boxes, earn a salary and climb a ladder you won’t find that at Cookpad. What you will find is a company, mission and culture that challenges you everyday, and ensures that you are always developing. You get as much out as you put in — there is no limitation."

    Philip, Product Manager

    "Prepare for the fact that even though Cookpad is a very established company used by millions of people around the world, it still has clear elements of a startup culture. You have lots of room to experiment and teams are given autonomy and space to try different things which is great, but maybe not for everyone."

    Sam, Design Research Lead
