Last Mile Logistics Leader Beans.ai Expands C-Suite to Meet Increased Demand
Beans.ai, a geospatial data creation company that maps complex addresses and surrounding points of interest, is hiring and expanding its executive team to meet increased demand for its precise last mile logistics technology.
Founded in 2018 by former engineers from Uber, Google, and Yahoo, who experienced the inaccuracy of mapping firsthand during a family emergency, Beans.ai details the precise locations of secondary addresses found within larger, primary address sites, like apartment complexes, condominiums, hospitals, and colleges. This sub-address-level data is made available through both geocoding and feature services, which allow users to easily search and find unit locations and semantic waypoints.

Beans. ai has grown rapidly with 500+ customers including FedEx Ground, Uber, Instacart, Verizon, Cox, Fetch Package, Lytx, Ontrac, and Optima Overnight as well as $19M in funding from Saama Capital and Google veteran Amit Singhal, with participation from Venture Highway, Mubadala Capital and industry veterans Brian McClendon and Manik Gupta, among others. Beans.ai has mapped over 70% of all hard-to-locate addresses like apartments and mobiles homes across the continental U.S. and powers over 4% of all residential deliveries in the U.S., up 100% in less than a year. To support this growth, the company hired former Podium Vice President of Sales, Nick Miller as Chief Revenue Officer. A Utah unicorn veteran, Miller also worked at Qualtrics before joining Podium where he spent six years helping the company scale from 20 to 1,400 employees.
“As a career salesperson, there’s nothing more motivating than selling an innovative product and I can honestly say Beans.ai is building one of the best products I’ve ever encountered,” said Miller. “With the largest mapping database in the U.S. and its advanced AI-driven technology, Beans.ai is disrupting the delivery industry by making that last mile easier to navigate for drivers, creating a more seamless customer experience. It’s a privilege to work with an ingenious team, building a superior product that’s solving an important problem in the service industry.”
