How has your career grown since starting at the company?

Instacart has given me the opportunity to grow my career significantly over the last 5 years. I started as an In-store shopper, became a Shift Lead, was promoted to Site Manager. Eventually, I transitioned into a new role on my current team at HQ and am expanding my coding skills with Carrot University, our internal coding bootcamp.
