A letter from our CEO, Oscar Pierre

Hello candidate, Oscar here!

Looking back, it's been an exhilarating journey since we founded Glovo 9 years ago with the audacious goal of creating the largest multicategory on-demand delivery app, aiming to make everything immediately accessible in cities.

Initially, our path led us to focus predominantly on the restaurant category. This strategic choice was deliberate: dominate food delivery first to establish a strong user base, then transition those users to a broader multicategory model. This approach has set the stage for what came next.

Five years ago, when Dani Alonso joined our team, QCommerce—our term for everything outside restaurants—was just a tiny slice of our business, making up less than 3% of our operations. Back then, QCommerce faced the classic innovator's dilemma: it was challenging to justify significant investments in technology and resources for segments like groceries, pharma, or flowers when demand appeared so modest.

However, Dani's leadership in QCommerce has been transformative. In these past four years, QCommerce has surged from near obscurity to achieving an impressive €1 billion in top-line revenue, now representing a fifth of our total business. Our focus has been on refining the value proposition and economics of the most challenging e-commerce vertical: groceries. We've partnered with over 100 top-tier grocery retailers across our markets to enhance our product, user experience, and choice. Yet, there remains a vast landscape of opportunity to better serve our customers, particularly as online penetration in groceries still hovers below 5% in most of our countries.

As we continue to expand our marketplace to include other categories such as pharma, pets, flowers, beauty, and sports, we see a clear shift. Our customers are rapidly embracing the concept of immediate delivery, coming to expect that everything they order online should arrive in mere minutes. This shift is redefining traditional e-commerce, and I believe we are only seeing the beginning of what QCommerce can achieve.

With Dani transitioning to lead our Product team full-time, the stage is set for a new visionary leader to drive QCommerce from €1 billion to €10 billion in the coming years. This is where you come in I am really looking forward to start working closely with you!
