About the Company

“Why Ooni? Because everyone deserves great pizza.

Ooni pizza ovens can make phenomenal pizza in just 60 seconds. Whaaaaaaaat?! (if you think that’s too many ‘a’s then you ain’t seen an Ooni in action).

In 2012 we made the world’s first portable pizza oven. It costs £199 and makes amazing pizzas in 60 seconds. Since then we’ve won the hearts, minds and stomachs of pizza fans around the world.

Now we’re selling all over the world; America, John Lewis, the internet. EVERYWHERE! We’re fired up! A super-modest, multi-award winning company.

Some facts about the company:
● We’re growing really really fast and have no plans to slow down
● We’ve built a lovely new office in Broxburn. We have 2 staff kitchens and a Nintendo. Our Christmas tree this year was about a 14-footer. ‘Wowee she’s a beaut’ they all said.
● We’re now up to 51 in the whole team. That was 28 this time last year and only 8 the year before that. It’s fun meeting so many new people.

● Pitching in with the management of social media platforms e.g.
Tweeting/Instagramming/Facebooking that it’s our 3rd pizza party of the week or that Jura the Hawk has popped in for lunch and no, we don't eat hawks… we just like to hang out with them!
● Helping to make our company people strategy a reality and managing the people pipeline - people and pizza power Ooni!
● You’ll help with new team member inductions, including ordering equipment and setting up laptops, organising desk space and creating an Ooni warm welcome! You’re our smiling frontline.
