Your work-life opportunity:
How are we doing this? By thinking big, and paying attention to small details. Glovo’s core product is a marketplace featuring the best restaurants in each city and delivery in less than 60 mins.
Glovo has recently introduced SaaS (Software as a Service) and LaaS (Logistics as a Service) products into our portfolio, to provide for all of our partners’ food ordering and delivery needs. Our SaaS allows partners to easily launch their online channel, and LaaS delivers it to the Customers with Glovo couriers.
Our vision is to offer our partners end-to-end solutions that help them grow and optimize their online and offline businesses. We believe most restaurants and stores will opt for a strategy that combines their channels, with marketplaces (like Glovo). We want Glovo to be the delivery partner of choice, and give them various opportunities to grow their delivery channel, together with marketplace sales (as Glovo).
