WANTED: Ux / Ui  productowner OR Javascipt frontend developer


WHY?
Because we believe that size nor location should hold you back on what to buy or not! PickThisUp offers a delivery solution on your phone within minutes. Just like ordering a cab with UBER, hotel room on booking.com or food by Thuisbezorgd.

PickThisUp was founded 3 years ago and we have the ambition to become the biggest delivery company in the world without vehicles.

 

HOW: About PickThisUp
Daily, thousands of purchases from web shops, Marktplaats and (BVA) auction sites must be picked up by yourself because it doesn't fit in a package (washing machine, bicycle, furniture, painting etc). In addition, the roads are full with couriers who drive half empty, are expensive and a lot of hassle to find a good one. When one of the founders needed to pick up his own Marktplaats purchase (set of car tires) in 2014, he wondered if one of the 8 million empty vehicles in the Netherlands couldn’t have helped him...

That was the start of PickThisUp; Delivering Anything, Anytime! PickThisUp helps consumers and webshops to send items that do not fit in a package. By connecting them with our network of +1.000 drivers (consumers & zzp couriers) who are on the road anyway. So they can make some extra money and you get the best priced delivery.

 

After burning all our personal savings, we have closed a successful crowdfunding campaign and angel investment. In 2017 we were selected by Startupbootcamp from 350 companies for the E-commerce accelerator program and recently welcomed a new investor who is the ex owner of a large transportation company. Due to new partnerships with Marktplaats, Auctionista & BVA-Auctions, we are looking for a front end developer who want to be part of our rollercoaster with the opportunity to become cofounder.
