007: Gorillas

Season 1, Ep. 7

Last month Gorillas riders in Berlin went on strike, blockading warehouses around the city and stoking international media coverage. The company which, in under a year of operating, has managed to achieve a market valuation of a billion US dollars finally started to come up against the collective will of riders. 

This week on the Fairwork podcast, we are exploring the company Gorillas Technologies - one of the fastest-growing startups in Europe. It’s a company with massive plans for expansion and is growing at a breakneck speed. We’ll hear from two Gorillas riders - Zeynep and Jakob - about their own experiences of the strikes, as well as catching up with Oğuz Alyanak to look at what the rise of these companies says about the way in which technologies are reshaping labour markets.
