The Finance & Business Strategy Team at Postmates works on solving key business problems. Our goal is to use data to help the company make the right decisions, address key challenges and identify new ways to grow and impact the company’s Financial performance.

As a Business Analyst at Postmates, you focus on driving critical business insights for our executive team and partner with leaders throughout the company to assess new opportunities and execute on ideas. You are a generalist who uses data to inform recommendations -- but you also have a mind for higher-level strategy. You can execute on near term monthly goals, but also take a long-term perspective. Examples of recent work include developing pricing strategies, identifying new growth initiatives, and building a pipeline of partnership opportunities. You will spend roughly 20% of your time on strategy (planning, prioritization, and decision making) and 80% on execution (putting plans into action), and you will work closely with Product, Growth, Sales and Business Development.

In this role, you will report into the VP of Revenue and your views will be reviewed directly by our executive team and you will have end-to-end ownership of key initiatives that shape the future of Postmates. You must be proactive and detail-oriented with strong technical skills and excellent written/verbal communication abilities.

An Insider's view of Postmates

What's something quirky about your company?

We take a humanistic approach when designing our employee event programming to show the similarities that exist between cultures. We strive to build a community with a shared ethos of caring for our world and conceptualizing ways in which we can contribute to the betterment of it.

Suzette

Engagement & Culture Events Coordinator

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.

Infrastructure Lead

What are some social events your company does?

Postmates puts emphasis on building connection and community, through both professional and personal interactions, to maintain our culture — and our mental wellness particularly in these difficult, unprecedented times. This including (now virtual) Happy Hours, Winesday on Wednesdays, cultural celebrations, volunteer events, and so much more.
