Glovo is building the future of cities by enabling anyone to get any product from any store in their city delivered in minutes. Our goal is to provide on-demand delivery infrastructure for every city in the world. We’re a fast-growing company with a global vision, and we currently have a small team of 4 Data Engineers. We’re looking for somebody that will lead the team growth, plan our Data Engineering strategy and architecture, and help us become a leading data-driven company.
We’re looking for an experienced Data Engineer that has previously led a team of at least 3-4 people and feels comfortable in the fast-paced environment of a growing start-up. A person that is always trying to improve their skills (by reading, practicing, attending meetups…) and that would help our Data Engineering team scale and shine.

You will:

  • Take our Data Engineering team to the next level, ensuring the availability and correctness of the data for the Data Science and Business Intelligence teams.
  • Lead, coordinate and motivate the Data Engineers of our team, ensuring their professional growth while focusing on fast and reliable delivery.
  • Own the technical design, modeling and architecture of our Data Warehouse and ETL pipelines.
  • Decide and participate in the implementation of the technical infrastructure that will support our data processes.
  • Be hands-on and code! We expect you to not only decide, but lead the implementation of your solutions. You’re a leader, not a manager.
  • Apply and mentor the team in best practices, and enforce them in code reviews (dimensional modeling, ETL pipeline design and implementation, unit testing…).
  • Set the technical roadmap for the Data Engineering team in close collaboration with the Platform Engineering team and the rest of the Data department.


  • Great communication skills.
  • Experience managing a small group of engineers.
  • Proficiency in SQL and at least in one modern programming language (Python, R, Java, Scala…).
  • Experience with a wide variety of Data Engineering tools, and ability to choose the right tool for the job taking into account suitability, cost-efficiency, evolvability and other constraints.
  • Deep understanding of the tech alternatives for building data lakes like Hadoop, Cassandra and Redshift.
  • Deep understanding of data streaming platforms like Kafka and Kinesis.
  • Understanding of Distributed Systems,
  • Experience with Cloud providers like AWS and GCP.
  • Familiarity with Linux or other Unix-based OS.
  • 6 to 10 years of experience in Engineering.
  • A degree in Computer Sciences, Mathematics or similar.
  • Familiarity / experience with Systems Engineering would be a big plus.
  • Our core values are very important to us:

    Gas: We think big and take calculated risks to go for all business opportunities, no matter how challenging they are! We work hard as a team and execute fast.

    Everyone Wins: We are here for the long run. Glovers, Partners, and Users are in the very center of everything we do. If they win, Glovo wins. So for every decision, we make sure we are positively impacting them.

    Good vibes: Our teams are built of people that radiate positive energy and managers that are honest and fair. No assholes allowed! We stay optimistic no matter what, infecting each other with positivity, joy, and the desire to spend time together.

    Stay Humble: Always act humble: Everybody must roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty to make our big plans a reality. We are tiny! We are conscious of how big the opportunity is and how much we’ve got left to do.

    Glownership: Act as one company—one team: Care first about Glovo, not your role or your department. Own your stuff, no question, but go beyond your role; help before you are asked. Everything you need to make things happen, you do it. Glow it!

    If you believe you match these values, we look forward to meeting you!
