YOUR WORK - LIFE OPPORTUNITY

Hi there – I’m Arnau, currently VP International at Glovo. I’ve been at Glovo since the beginning (9yrs already, I’m getting old...) in different roles from operations to expansion – leading countries myself. I’m in charge of the local organization at Glovo and my main mission is to drive the P&L and execution in our markets.

I am looking for the General Manager of Spain. Spain is our biggest country and home market with more than 200 professionals working in the business unit. Even if it’s our biggest business, don’t believe for a second that we’re speaking of a stable and boring business – we’re only scratching the surface of what it can become. Your mission will be to multiply by 10x the size of the current business. You will be the CEO of Spain and will have full P&L ownership.

We will offer you the ride of your life, you will have a direct impact like anywhere else. The journey will be intense, but also very rewarding. If you feel identified with all of the above, I’m looking forward to hearing from you!

  • Develop new business opportunities, anticipate issues and improve processes
  • Be the legal representative of Glovo and act accordingly

WHAT YOU WILL BRING TO THE RIDE

  • Experience leading +100 people cross functional team, have hired senior management and have been involved in re-organizations
  • Led negotiations of multi-million contracts and you're comfortable of building relationships with C-level of other organizations
  • Led P&L with full ownership and multiple departments including operations, marketing and main core functions of a company
  • You are capable of inspiring teams, including senior management of 10yr+ of experience. You attract talent and are obsessed about high performance and raising the bar
  • You're persuasive in the most pleasant possible way and have no trouble selling anything
  • You’re an expert on managing stakeholders, working with peers and leveraging other teams aspiring to do what’s best for the company

  • You ensure the highest standards for you and your team with the deliverables and business objectives
  • You have an ambition and energy that makes some people think you're crazy while inspiring others
  • You are always a step ahead, proactive with potential problems/opportunities and always thinking how to be better
