Job Description

Who we are

Buyk is a new real-time retail service that delivers groceries within 15 minutes. Via the Buyk app, customers simply select the items they'd like from our assortment, click "Order" – and we do the rest, with your order arriving on your doorstep in 15 minutes or less.

We know that your time is precious, and you want to spend it doing something truly important – whether that's working on a new project, spending time with family and loved ones, or simply kicking back to enjoy some well-deserved rest and relaxation. Now, Buyk takes care of your shopping, while you take care of yourself.

How does it work?

Buyk is much more than a well-oiled, genius logistical system. Behind the curtain, a multimillion-dollar software system, combined with artificial intelligence and a meticulously selected product assortment, provides for a streamlined shopping experience, eliminating time-consuming browsing through irrelevant items.

We use our darkstores, stocked with between 2-3000 items to deliver groceries and other essentials to customers' doors within 15 mins. These darkstores are strategically located to enable maximum coverage in the quickest possible time and are fitted out with Buyk's proprietary technology to optimize the speed of order picking and delivery. Buyk's technology also provides its teams with detailed information on a hyperlocal level, to ensure each darkstore is stocked according to the specific needs and desires of consumers in that area.

Our mission

To give our customers back the one thing that is truly valuable - their time. Life isn't for waiting in line to check out or spending hours each week running back and forth between stores. Instead, it should be spent doing things we truly love. Buyk takes away the burden of the shopping experience, giving you the time needed to live your best life.

Buyk – making real-time retail a reality.
