Glovo is taking the On-demand and digital economy space by storm and you could be part of it. Our passion is making cities smaller by having anything you want to be delivered in no-time. Italy is one of the most amazing and important countries where we are operating. We are in the main italian cities generating a clear change at different levels; citizens, digitalization, mobility or economic growth. So, we fulfill a special role in the world that takes a special kind of attitude to navigate.
Because this is not an easy task and generates a relevant public interest, we've decided to create a public affairs head in Italy. A person who will be member of a team of professionals working in many different areas and amazing challenges.

For this reason, we are looking for someone that THRIVES in it. Someone that gathers and analyses relevant intel, assesses the situation and implements short and long-term solutions. A person who understands priorities, manage crisis and, at the same time, visualize long-term public concerns with distance.

You will set up the public affairs practice in Italia in coordination with our local team, external advisors and the policy area at HQ. You will be responsible for working with policymakers and third parties to make the positive case for change.  It also about figuring out the best local regulatory framework and then developing campaigns to help shape the reform. Your role will have a key mission in order to build the reputation of Glovo and its social contribution.

You will:

  • Manage and lead our public affairs effort in Italia, developing strategies for keeping the market open, and promoting projects to reinforce our non-market strategies and brand
  • Analyze existing and proposed laws and regulations for impact on Glovo or our partners
  • Coordinate and support other areas of Glovo at local and HQ levels
  • Design regulatory and legislative proposals in support of our business strategies
  • Directly engage policymakers and their staff to explain and defend Glovo's business model and vision
  • Craft and execute a third party engagement strategy aimed at developing Glovo’s champions in the communities we serve


  • Experience: At least five years of experience working in government affairs, political campaigns, or public policy.  But we’re open to candidates who’ve been leaders in other careers (e.g. attorneys, media communications, consultancy) and may be looking for a career change
  • Analytical skills related with political, social and economic matters
  • A deep understanding: Glovo and other on-demand delivery companies are changing cities and the economic activity. You will need to be able to understand the potential for positive change and be an advocate of our vision. In addition, you'll need the ability to convey this message confidently and persuasively
  • Social and Communication skills that permit to adequately and effectively explain our model and its impact
  • A team player:  Success at Glovo depends on the ability to interact with different teams (internally and externally) around shared goals.  It’s why we’re looking for well-organized people who enjoy working with others to get stuff done
  • A self-starter:  Glovo is a company of entrepreneurs and we want to work with people who enjoy building things from the bottom up.  Things move quickly so you’ll need to be highly adaptable as well as calm under pressure
  • 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!
