VP Product

at Drover in London

Drover is the mobility-as-a-service platform for everyone who wants a car for longer than just getting from A to B: find the car you want, keep it for as long as you want, swap or cancel anytime. In short: we are the Netflix for cars.

Drover achieves this through a two-sided rental marketplace model, connecting professional fleet owners with individual hirers, run on a superb website, a SaaS-based fleet management interface and a mobile app. Our vision is to provide a better alternative to car financing and traditional ownership and change how people access cars today.

Drover was founded by a team of serial technology entrepreneurs in January 2016, has handled over 10,000 vehicle bookings since and has been serially backed by world-class investors including Partech Ventures, Version One Ventures, Forward Partners and BP Ventures. If you want to make a difference and you’re passionate about tech & mobility, come on board and join the ride.

As our VP Product, you’ll take complete ownership of all things product at Drover, manage and mentor or product manager(s) and product designer, and work with our team of ten engineers and external partners to get our product to the next level. You’ll own our product strategy and vision and help the team strive for excellence in delivering superb customer experiences for our customers and fleet partners. From day one, you’ll tackle new problems, address new challenges, and find new, creative ways to apply yourself to the problems at hand, whether you’re working on a customer-facing feature or an internal tool that will help us scale faster
