295 days ago
Product Management at Deliveroo takes many forms, and involves many facets. We're a consumer-facing brand, with websites and mobile apps which help customers find great quality food which can be brought to them to satisfy their needs any time day or night. We're a logistics company, directing a fleet of drivers around major cities across the globe using a dedicated native app. We're a partner to restaurants, who see us as a way to unlock access to new customers and thus maximize the revenue of their existing business. And we're a home for numerous internal teams building internally facing tools for Care, finance, and others, to keep the operation running effectively.

Life as a product manager can mean working on any or all of these areas, in order to deliver value to customers, drivers, and restaurants. Day to day, you'll tackle new, interesting business problems, and find innovative, creative ways to solve them. We're seeking brilliant and motivated Product Managers to help us keep moving things forward.

What you'll be doing

Logistics Algorithms is one of the most vital areas within Deliveroo. These cutting edge algorithms, in real time, predict and organise riders and restaurants to deliver a fast, convenient and seamless service for our consumers. Our rider network is essential to the success of our business. It is rare for a product area to genuinely break new ground across industries, that is exactly what this group does - solving problems that no one has ever solved before.

We are looking for a highly motivated, experienced Product leader to join the Logistics Algorithms group to help us continue to build cutting edge solutions and take our teams to the next level.

That means we have no judgement when it comes to any one of the things that make you who you are - your gender, race, sexuality, religion or a secret aversion to coriander. All you need is a passion for (most) food and a desire to be part of one of the fastest growing startups in an incredibly exciting space.
