Our goal is to create the world's most efficient retail system. Through smart work, passionate customer focus and our own technology we make a difference in the lives of thousands of customers and change society for the better through a completely re-imagined value chain for grocery shopping.
Our customers save more than 60 hours a year, time we believe can be better spent than going to the store. Our effective value chain and logistics save society tonnes of food waste each year and our distribution network replace almost 13,000 individual trips by car to the grocery store each year.
As Product Manager, you will be a part of a visionary Product & Tech team; with its small, but experienced group of three product managers (incl. CPO). We are organised into cross-functional teams with software engineers, designers, data scientists & analysts - where each team is expected to set strategy and deliver upon a well-defined problem area. Some focus on customer experience and growth, while others focus on building world-class logistics for our warehouse or distribution operations. We have exciting product management opportunities in all these areas and are looking for experienced PMs to shape our path forward.
