Our Mission:
Large marketplaces like Amazon have trained us to expect products delivered to our doorsteps within 1-2 days at no extra cost. As a result, millions of sellers on other marketplaces are falling behind, unable to cost-effectively deliver products to their customers. Our mission is to transform the $8-12T fragmented and outdated logistics industry and build an intelligent, asset-lite network that enables any online seller to offer fast affordable fulfillment.
Our Team:

We're based in the heart of San Francisco and building teams around the globe - backed by leading Silicon Valley venture capital firms.

What projects are you most excited about?

Deliverr is launching a same-day delivery operation in Chicago for beauty & wellness products. It'll bring Chicagoans a premium buying experience from the comfort of their homes. As the Operations Manager, I spend most of the day in the details of each order to ensure Chicagoan's are getting the products they need, exactly when they want it!

How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Deliverr has given me the opportunity to grow outside of just the Operations sector. By working with Engineering, Growth, Support and Data Science, I have been able to expand my knowledge base by learning how our systems communicate and flow together, collaborate on different marketing strategies and understand customer experience and engagement.
