According to a report by ECO, the company also intends to hire 60 employees by the end of the year, reaching 160 workers in the national market.
“This new investment, the new offices, the presence in more cities and the increase in the number of employees always are part of a focus on the objective of being the reference application in Portugal and bringing even more convenience to Glovo users”, says Joaquín Vázquez , general manager of Glovo in Portugal.
Glovo's investment plan foresees the expansion of the service to another 70 cities, reaching a total of 160. The recruitment of 60 people is also planned — joining the 30 already hired since the beginning of the year, in areas such as Sales, Brand Marketing Services and Operations.
Last year, Glovo expanded to more than 40 cities and currently has more than 8,500 partners, “which represents a 100 percent increase in orders in the available restaurant category, 164 percent in the grocery category, 187 percent in stores and 95 percent more in the area of health and well-being”.
Portugal is in the top 3 countries of investment from the Spanish delivery platform, which recently bought two Portuguese companies, Mercadão and Kitch, with the aim of taking Portuguese technology and talent to the 25 countries in which it is currently present.
