WHO WE ARE

Postmates enables anyone to have just about anything on-demand. We pioneered the on-demand space and currently serve 3500+ cities with a fleet of more than 350,000 Postmates and the largest network of merchants in the US. We’re changing the landscape of commerce by making cities our warehouses, providing the delivery infrastructure, and connecting our customers to any product, anywhere, anytime. Postmates isn’t just an app, it’s a way of life and a part of pop culture. We are the O.G. of on-demand and we’ve given people a new superpower — the ability to Postmate anything from anywhere. We’re building a movement to make Postmates a verb: Postmate it.

WHAT WE DO

Postmates relies heavily on our engineering team to realize this vision. Building a software platform that is reliable, scales, and stays agile under demanding product needs is a serious technical challenge. Postmates is a three-part balancing act connecting customers, merchants, and couriers in real-time. If any piece is out of whack, the whole system suffers. Working with the Postmates engineering team offers an opportunity with explosive growth, cutting-edge technology, a highly visible charter, and a cool user-focused product vision. 

Postmates is looking for a contract Web Developer who would primarily focus on our SEO initiatives. The role would mostly be building static/light on javascript marketing type pages. Since most of our tooling and apps are written in React though, it is important to have some familiarity with React.

OUR REQUIREMENTS
  • Minimum of 2 years of experience working with web technologies and a passion for UX
  • Minimum of 2 years of experience working with a modern web framework like React or Angular
  • A deep understanding of the fundamentals of the web (REST, JS, HTML, CSS)
  • Strong knowledge of algorithms and data structures
  • Bachelor's degree (or equivalent experience) required
OUR PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS

An Insider's view of Postmates Inc.

What's something quirky about your company?

One thing that makes me proud to be a part of Postmates, is our program FoodFight. It is a Postmates driven partnership with local shelters that makes sure leftover food from restaurants makes its way to a shelter and feeds those who are hungry. We care immensely about the communities that we serve, and FoodFight is one way that we show it!

What's the biggest problem your team is solving?

Our Security team ensures our users, merchants, and Postmates info is safe. We develop and deploy mitigations to eliminate the potential for vulnerabilities that pose a security risk. Driving these projects from start to finish and seeing the impact of our work is extremely rewarding.

How does the company support your career growth?

I once read that “growth and comfort don’t coexist” and Postmates lives by it. From day one at Postmates, I felt challenged and have been given projects that impact the business. I’ve had to flex technical muscles that I have never used and it’s exciting because I’m developing into a more well-rounded engineer which only enhances my career growth.

How do you empower your team to be more creative?

Instead of assigning work/tasks to my team, we operate by having the team identify what they think are the problems that we need to be solving today, and how that will scale or change over the next few years then align those with company priorities. This forces my team to be more creative in how they approach their work on a day to day basis.

What are some social events your company does?

Postmates is a fun place to work. We hold various social events throughout the year, both locally in Bellevue and at the San Francisco HQ. Last year, we held a team event at Golden Gate Park, movie nights and happy hours in SF, as well as a hike and Christmas party in Bellevue. Looking forward to more fun events this year!
