An in-depth description of the role

About Us

We are Shift and we’re an on-demand / on-your-schedule logistics marketplace for moving anything, anywhere for both businesses and consumers. Shift uses a scalable network of independent drivers and integrations into existing fleets to facilitate jobs. Our platform combines technology with intelligent algorithms to find the best-suited Shifter from a pool of thousands; offering customers the only quick and easy moving service on your schedule at disruptor level prices.

This is an opportunity to come into a startup that has so much left to figure out. We’re proud of what we’ve accomplished so far, but we need to solve some critical challenges to get to the next level. As a relatively early joiner to our team, equity is on offer (in line with experience and seniority of role). We’re excited to hear from you if you’re ready to check your ego at the door and build our Supply team with passion, grit, intellect and heaps of empathy.

Day-to-day you’ll:

– Optimise job profitability by managing supply density, job allocation, consumer pricing and driver pay
– Own end-to-end driver marketing, onboarding and retention process
– Refine the systems & algorithms used in driver allocation with product
– Define new features to support supply performance with product

You’ll be a dream if you:

– Have a track record working in a similar market place (e.g, Uber, Deliveroo, Just Eat, Via etc)
– Have a formidable track record in a managerial role at a startup / scaleup
– Are highly numerate and able to discuss technical product requirements
– Check your ego at the door and lead with empathy and passion
– Get excited by the prospect of setting and executing your vision for your team
– Ideal but not required: have hired for and scaled similar teams in a startup environment
– Ideal but not required: have experience building value-add / perks package for a community
