We deliver thousands of products quickly and for a flat $1.95 delivery fee. Gopuff operates in over 500 cities today with plans to continue rapid expansion.

Gopuff is looking for a scrappy, high-performing VC Investment Associate to help lead the end-to-end deal process on potential investment opportunities as we continue to expand into new markets and new verticals. We are looking for a self-starter to be an integral part of a new team at Gopuff and drive the investment process from sourcing and vetting new opportunities to executing transactions. Gopuff Ventures is a brand-new platform within Gopuff and is planning to change the way consumer brands are built. We are partnering with the top emerging consumer brands to accelerate their go-to-market and increase accessibility to their consumer base.

  • Create strong processes around scalability of our investment process
  • Strong team player mentality with ability to take on special projects and assignments as needed

The only predictable thing about life is that it’s wildly unpredictable. That’s where we come in.

When life does what it does best, customers turn to Gopuff to deliver their everyday essentials, and to get through their day & night, work day and weekend.

We’re assembling a team of thinkers, dreamers & risk-takers...the kind of people who know the value of peace of mind in an unpredictable world. (And people who love snacks.)

Like what you’re hearing? Welcome to Gopuff.
