Getir is about making life easier and more enjoyable. Our unique model and value proposition put us on the forefront of mobile retail. At Getir, we like to grow fast. Our ambitions are simply big. To accomplish these big goals, we need to do a mix of big and small things so Getir reaches more people faster than it naturally would.

The goal is simple: to explain Getir’s extraordinary value proposition to our audience while boosting sustainable growth. 

In that light, we’re looking for an experienced “Category Purchasing Specialist”  to join us on this adventure.

Our unique product range spans from snacks to food, toiletries to cleaning products, pet food to beverages, fresh vegetables to phone chargers. More than a thousand different products have been sold through the Getir app, thanks to our procurement team.

While others call suppliers as suppliers, we call them partners here at Getir. How we procure the best items from our partners is an essential part of our business model. By negotiating win-win deals so far, we have added valuable products to our app while also helping our partners grow. 

As our business grows, we are going to hire multiple talented humans to work with us in various categories throughout our procurement processes. (ex: water, food, perishables, etc.)

  • Maintain, and further develop, a win-win relationship with our supplier partners through supporting activities.
  • Carrying out the purchasing processes of the relevant product group
  • Finding new products and suppliers and conducting supplier negotiations.

What You’ll Bring?

  • Amazing negotiation skills, so that you can build powerful relationships with our partners.
  • BA degree from a related department. 
  • B.Sc. in graduate Food Engineer, Industrial Engineer or a similar discipline
  • Min 1-3 years experience in category management.
  • We are looking for peers to work for food. So, experience in these categories will be a plus.
