Glovo is building the future of cities by enabling anyone to access the products and services available in their city on demand. Our goal is to bring this value proposition to a global audience. As a Product Manager of the Matching Algorithm you will be responsible for leading, quantifying and building the technology that defines industry best practices in a specialised subject of our complex multi-user facing platform.    At the core of Glovo’s technology there is the dispatching system, responsible for maximizing the efficiency of the platform by taking the proper decisions when matching orders with couriers. The impact of this team in the whole business is massive, both in terms of user satisfaction and unit economics.    As Product Manager of the Matching team, you will be defining the priorities for one of the sub-teams within the logistics cluster. That team is responsible for the structure of the matching algorithm that solves the assignment problem, for the dispatching experience and for maintaining an up to date simulator.

  • Ensure strong collaboration and communication across the company and serve as a primary point of contact for internal stakeholders when it comes to the structure of the algorithm.

You have:

  • At least 5 years of professional experience in product, operations or data science discipline. Preferably background in Engineering, Physics, Statistics, Computer Science or Mathematics.
  • Strong analytical skills. Proven knowledge in operations research, assignment problems, VRP or similar domains.  
  • Technical know-how—you have a solid understanding of how software is made and how it works. 
  • Experience in solving similar problems in the same industry will be much appreciated.
  • Ability to juggle multiple strands of work and priorities to meet strict deadlines on complex projects that may span across multiple teams and have many dependencies
