Head of Operations
London, United Kingdom
5d ago

At Getir, we write the ending of the story first. In the context of Getir, that (original!) ending is super-fast delivery.

Groceries and everyday items delivered in a matter of minutes (would we be showing off if we said our average was 10 minutes?

Once we write the ending, we go back to square one to figure out how we can get to that differentiating end. Considering the complexity of delivery, it's imperative that we have a unique operational model.

One that firstly prioritizes safety, then an incredible user experience, ultimately followed by a model that works financially.

As we launch and then further expand in the United Kingdom, we will both utilize the know-how we've accumulated over 5 years, as well as adopt / integrate know-how that pertains to the UK.

But far beyond local know-how, we're looking for an individual who is awesome both in their humanity and in their skillset.

Together, we will disrupt delivery in the UK, and have a great time doing it.
