Engineering Manager, Operations Technology at Postmates Inc.
Why compromise? Finally an opportunity that your engineering heart, your career, your mentor and your family can be excited about at the same time! Yes, a job that has it all, i.e., explosive growth, ground-floor architecture, cutting-edge technology, a highly visible charter and a cool vision that you can boast about.
Who are we?
Postmates is disrupting local commerce by providing a marketplace where consumers can purchase goods from any local restaurant or store and local couriers deliver the goods to their home in minutes. Postmates has unlocked on-demand local shopping — providing consumers the convenience of super fast delivery for the largest selection of goods (anything in the whole city!); the benefit and scale of e-commerce for local merchants; and more flexible work for couriers.
This is a tall order, and Postmates relies heavily on our engineering applications and systems to realize this vision. Even though we are already a billion dollar business with millions of customers in 300+ US cities trusting us with more than 2M orders every month, we have only just started our technical journey to build our technology stack in a way that can keep up with our rapid growth.
What does this team do?
We didn’t make Postmates a billion dollar business, but our customers did. Operations Technology teams are the technical engines that support Postmates’ mission of anything, anytime and anywhere. We build the software and services that touch every Postmates customer and innovate solutions for logistics, delivery and customer service. We stretch the limits of distributed systems and big data processing to solve some of the hardest technical problems and unprecedented scale challenges. To add to the excitement, we are growing our engineering site in downtown Bellevue, where you really can be amongst the first employees in a well-funded, proven, highly technical, highly visible and business critical idea.
What will you do?
As an Engineering Manager, you will be responsible for leading one or more teams of engineers on all aspects of product development. You will partner with product management, data science, business operations and other engineering leaders to build and deliver the roadmap of your teams. You will participate in technical design and planning while providing guidance for engineers to ensure they execute well everyday. Finally, as we’re scaling explosively, you’ll have lots of opportunities to build & grow the teams via hiring & mentoring.
To accomplish this, you are expected to have an established background in building high-performing teams developing highly scalable systems and delivering cross-functional initiatives. You should be somebody who enjoys recruiting & coaching, is customer-centric, and feels strongly about delivering results.
