At Coco, we’re dedicated to perfecting the last-mile delivery experience through robotics. We believe the delivery service industry in its current state is massively under-serving merchants, and we are committed to creating a sustainable, reliable, and frictionless delivery experience for merchants and their customers.

Coco is a venture-backed, Series A stage startup that operates hundreds of sidewalk robots, delivering to thousands of customers every week across Los Angeles. The environment here is high-energy, collaborative, and exciting. Our HQ is located in the heart of Santa Monica with views of the ocean.

    • Consumer and Merchant Products: We build products to create a frictionless, efficient, and delightful end-to-end delivery experience for our users - merchants and their customers. We design each robot interaction - loading the robot, tracking the delivery, unlocking the robot, etc. around user pain points and moments of delight.
    • Logistics Products: Delivery is an expensive problem. We partner with other Coco teams (e.g., Merchant Operations, Consumer Experience, Field Operations, TeleOperations, and Autonomy), acting as a thought partner to tackle some of Coco’s most pressing efficiency and profitability initiatives.
