Product Manager @ Pikup

Who We Are 🚚

Pikup is the milkman, but for your favorite stores. We believe that in five years, merchants will stop relying on third-party delivery services, opting in to do it themselves. Pikup connects merchants directly with local neighborhoods for weekly community drops (group deliveries). We enable group buying and delivery, social savings, and provide the platform for merchants to collect, route, and deliver group orders.

Pikup drives profitable, incremental, and dependable revenue to merchants by aggregating demand every week within our neighborhoods. We are building a better way for communities across the country to get what they need, directly from the merchants they love, every week.

Pikup is one of the first and fastest-growing social delivery platforms in the United States. We’re backed by Techstars, Target, Starting Line, Unusual Ventures, and early employees and founders from Nextdoor and Instacart. We are growing 4x YoY with plans to expand to dozens of markets within the next 12 months. Our team of 15 is spread across offices in Minneapolis, MN, and New Delhi, India.
