Regional Manager (New Verticals Site Operations)

Deliveroo’s mission is to transform the way you shop and eat, bringing the neighbourhood to your door by connecting consumers, restaurants, shops and riders. We continue to operate in a competitive marketplace but have achieved so much over the past years, including significant growth in our New Verticals business, which includes site operations across our delivery only sites - Editions and HOP.

We continue to innovate and challenge ourselves on what we should deliver next to achieve our mission. We are investing and building out teams to help us launch new innovative products. It's an exciting time to join and while we have made great progress, we are just getting started!

New Verticals

Deliveroo Editions were the world's first delivery-only kitchens, and we are still the market leaders in helping our restaurant partners succeed. We entered this space in 2017 and operate across various markets and have since perfected the art of getting customers their deliveries in the fastest and most pleasant way possible. Deliveroo HOP launched in September 2021 and is Deliveroo’s speedy grocery delivery service. Our mission is to deliver groceries to customers around the world in as little as 10 minutes - from the weekly shop, to a last minute dinner party or a late night snack. Working with trusted grocers, Deliveroo Hop promises to bring customers the very best products at lightning speed.
