  • Develop key KPIs for our ML pipelines and services developed and ensure the team is maintaining high availability of all ML services
  • Make sure the team is data driven in all its decisions

  • At least 5 years of experience with machine learning platforms and technologies
  • At least 3 years managing a team of engineers with proven ability to grow your team/hire and keep them motivated
  • Practical experience in several machine learning topics such as computer vision, natural language processing, recommendation systems, bayesian networks and deep learning
  • A deep sense of ownership for what you do with clear, demonstrable experience of proactiveness
  • Ability to understand the impact of changes within an engineering organisation and how best to manage that impact  
  • 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!
