An Insider's view of Postmates Inc.

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.
