Takeoff Company Overview
Takeoff's mission is to bring fresh and affordable groceries online!
We work with grocers to integrate our automated grocery fulfillment solution into their existing business. Our Microfulfillment Center sits inside their store, working alongside their employees to fulfill orders. We give grocers the flexibility to embrace eCommerce on their own terms.
Takeoff was founded in the fall of 2016 by José Vicente Aguerrevere and Max Pedró. Both Max and José bring a wealth of knowledge and passion for grocery from over a decade of executive experience in the grocery industry. Since then, Takeoff has flourished. We are now at around 200 employees!

Every member of Takeoff benefits from our fun and supportive company culture! Some of the things we offer include:
Fully stocked kitchen and daily catered lunches
Beautiful, well-lit, open office space

Our culture revolves around our core values of respect, initiative, collaboration, adaptability and diversity. As people, we value hard work, but we balance it with socializing as a team, respecting our time outside of work, and appreciating our coworkers’ unique walks of life.
The culture here is so unlike big companies. It’s warm and friendly. We eat lunch together every day. It really feels like family.
Everyone here really believes in what they do. We work hard, but we also know how to have fun!
My favorite thing about working at Takeoff is the collaborative environment. We're all part of the team.
At the end of the day, Takeoff really cares about their employees. It's great to work at a place that appreciates each and every team member.
Last Friday, I completed my 13-week summer internship with Takeoff Technologies as a UX intern. I really enjoy working in such a warm, friendly, and collaborative environment. I learned about creating user personas, performing user research, testing, and interview for our fulfillment & supply chain apps. I learned how to conduct an effective competitive analysis and analogous research to gain insights on current trends of competitors and eGrocery market. I also learned how to analyze user behavior and engagement using different analytical tools, and implement the findings to further improve our apps usability and features. Last but not least, I would like to thank my manager Becky Carpenter and Laura Cody from the UX team for teaching me the principles of Lean UX, product design, and collaboration with other departments.
