WHO WE ARE

Postmates enables anyone to have just about anything on-demand. We pioneered the on-demand space and currently serve 80% of US households 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

We are the Community Engagement team and we are champions and advocates for the 400K+ Postmates who choose to earn on our platform. The decisions we make, the policies we create, and the actions we take, have a real human impact. We are subject matter experts in all things Fleet. We have a deep understanding of who a Postmate is, their motivations for earning on our platform, and are actively educating ourselves to be acutely aware of the pain points both on and off the platform.

We are well versed in the Future of Work, and are staunch grassroots advocates for the right to earn flexibly. We build relationships with, form beneficial partnerships, and empower members of our diverse Postmates community across the US to shape the policy frameworks for economic empowerment and opportunity.

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!
