Our mission is to transform the way you shop and eat, bringing the neighbourhood to your door by connecting consumers, restaurants, shops, and riders. We are transforming the way the world eats and shops by making access to food and products more convenient and enjoyable. We give people the opportunity to buy what they want, as they want it, as they want it.

We are a technology-driven company at the forefront of the most rapidly expanding industry in the world.

  2. Escalating any concerns about vendor relationships to Staff PM (hiring manager). Ensuring accurate and timely financial reconciliation - ensuring costs are correctly raised, allocated, paid and reported quickly and effectively
  3. Working on projects to support our longer term strategy - partnering with teams from across the business to achieve specific goals (e.g. procuring a new capability). With support from Staff PM (hiring manager), help shape the path to our 3 year vision (Rider Onboarding 2027 Strategy) by understanding existing vendor capabilities, cost and (as growth opp) develop build or buy recommendations to get us to this vision
