As many of you know, I spent the last year working with an incredible and talented team at Checkd.in. We wanted to reinvent the way modern day sponsorships were created. A lofty goal, certainly, but we fought for it because we believed in it. Unfortunately, like every startup, we were faced with challenges, some we could master and others we could not. The decision was made to put a hold on that dream, but I'm thankful that today every one of my teammates and friends have found amazing new ventures, from Maker Studios to Politico.
I've been on my search for that next exciting opportunity and I've found just that with Postmates. Tomorrow I start on a new adventure with an established and well-funded startup that is transforming the way local goods move around a city by enabling anyone to get any product delivered in under one hour. If you're familiar with Uber, think of Postmates as clicking a button and getting a burrito from Chipotle or a pair of Warby Parker sunglasses from Imogene & Willie delivered to your home, just like you're used to getting a cab. This is a big deal, and it's changing the way we get local products into our hands when we want and need them.
Postmates is entering Nashville this month for the first time, and I will be joining the team as the Community Manager. I'll be responsible for the Nashville market and have a focus on making sure the quality, speed, and experience, from when you click that button to when it's delivered, is flawless.
So, if you live in Nashville, prepare to have Hattie B's, Rosepepper, Virago, home supplies, groceries, and much more just a click away, and let me know how you like using Postmates! As someone who loves technology and startups, I'm thrilled to be joining the Postmates team during their growth stage, from new markets to new features. Exciting times are ahead!
