Contract Type

Zonal Marketing Technologies is a digital agency, and part of the Zonal group. Our DNA is that of a fast-moving start-up, but we have the clout and connections of the UK's largest provider of technology to the hospitality industry. We work with brands like PizzaExpress, JD Wetherspoons and All Bar One on everything from apps, order & pay, digital vouchers and loyalty to online bookings and table management. By linking these solutions to Zonal's EPoS (till) system, we help hospitality brands to understand their customers' behaviour and preferences, enabling them to excel in an increasingly competitive market.

Our talented studio team create amazing web sites, build dynamic, engaging e-mail templates, design cool 'stuff' and code some pretty slick toolsets for some of the biggest brand names in hospitality. It's fast-paced and tactical one day and more considered and strategic the next. It's not dull and it's never boring and if you're all about broadening your experience then this is the place for you to grow your core skills mix. In terms of technology, we embrace the best of the past with the newest of the new and throw in some quick-win frameworks that Google has to offer.

Even with all these solutions to hand, it's still all about the difference YOU can make, with a truly proactive, can-do attitude. We encourage new ideas mixed with tried and tested solutions - then the agency team's creativity and problem-solving skills give our clients a stage on which their brands can perform. We are a diverse bunch of people with a common set of values - great design, quality execution, cutting-edge integrated solutions, and a customer-first attitude. And, as a team we support each other with a smile on our faces and a true sense of achievement in what we do.
