Talent Acquisition Manager

The rise and momentum of e-commerce is undeniable. In Europe alone, E-commerce revenues are projected to reach £442 billion by 2025. And this growth is mainly driven by small and medium e-commerce sellers. In the UK alone there are 200,000 online SMEs!

This growth is underpinned by the emergence of new platforms: It has never been easier to set up a web shop and start selling online, thanks to platforms such as WooCommerce, Shopify, Square Space, etc. And it has never been easier to get sales, with the help of marketplaces such as Amazon, Ebay, Etsy, etc. But when it comes to fulfilment… they struggle.

The existing offering of e-commerce logistics is very poor: current providers’ lack of technology is creating a transparency problem that is translated into low quality experience for consumers. On top of that they lack scale and flexibility to fulfil today e-commerce sellers’ needs. This shouldn’t be this way!

Enter Bezos. At Bezos.ai, we are building the future of e-commerce logistics. Our one stop shop solution makes it super easy for sellers to manage their logistics, eliminating the hassle of managing storage, fulfillment, last mile delivery and returns. And we are doing it for SMEs!. Our mission is to help them grow by giving them access to the logistics services reserved until now only to big retailers. We do that by aggregating a large network of logistic services, and putting them all together under one technology layer and one service.

We have currently one of the biggest fulfilment networks in the UK, and soon expanding it into Europe. Thanks to Bezos technology and network, now e-commerce sellers have access to a scalable, flexible and affordable end to end solution, where they can put their e-commerce logistics in autopilot and let us take care of everything. 

Bezos was founded by Diego Lijtmaer and Vernon Tjon-Soei-Len, two seasoned technology executives with relevant experience and track record in the logistics industry.

Diego built the business development and logistics functions at Just Eat Plc (food delivery, FTSE 100), where he was responsible for building relationships with the global branded restaurant groups, and also in charge of designing and building the UK delivery operations (LinkedIn profile here).

Vernon was Director of Amazon Flex UK (part of Amazon’s Last Mile Product & Technology team), a crowdsourced last mile delivery solution with tens of thousands of drivers, enabling everyone with a vehicle and mobile phone to deliver packages for Amazon (LinkedIn profile here).
