Lead Product Designer

About us

ResDiary is a cloud-based reservation system offered as a web-based service software application and supported by a separate iOS manager’s app.  We also have a consumer offering: a web portal, www.resdiary.com; and iOS and an Android app, ResDiary Now, which unites diners with venues to gain incremental reservations for operators.

ResDiary is unique in that we do not charge transaction fees but work on a fixed, monthly, flat fee. Our vision is to help empower venues to improve revenue and yield to the operator’s best advantage.

Growing significantly month on month, over 8,300 venues currently use ResDiary across 57 countries, seating more than 13 million guests per month. We are headquartered in Glasgow, where most of the team work, but we also have teams in Manchester, London, Dublin, New Zealand, Singapore, Dubai, Canada, Indonesia, and more.
