This is a rare opportunity to impact a fast-growing, high-potential startup, with high visibility into Instacart’s Product, Engineering, Analytics, Operations, Business Development & Finance teams.

As a Strategy & BizOps team member, you will be the primary point of contact for our leadership team on critical questions related to Instacart’s near-term and long-term success. You will need to solve for multiple strategic priorities (i.e. growth, efficiency, and quality) and consider various stakeholders (customers, shoppers, advertisers, and retailers). Each week will bring you a new set of projects and challenges, where success is measured by data-driven outcomes -- you will have the satisfaction of seeing the results of your work and earning the gratitude of your peers while growing your career and learning the ins-and-outs of a cutting-edge tech startup.

As a Strategy & BizOps Sr. Associate, you are the perfect mix of analytical, technical, and operational. You will collect, sanitize, analyze, and synthesize data; apply critical thinking & communications skills to make actionable recommendations; and drive those recommendations thru to execution. You are a clear, confident communicator who loves taking a complicated problem, decomposing it, and building a compelling business case.

  • Develop a rigorous and detailed understanding of the P&L by geography, user type, product and retailer to drive growth, retention, product & pricing strategies.

  • Collaborate on critical operational excellence projects, turning your strategic recommendations into reality.
  • Serve as an important cross-functional liaison between Instacart’s Product, Engineering, Analytics, Operations, Business Development & Finance teams.

ABOUT YOU

  • 3-4 years work experience in a relevant field with demonstrated cross-functional and collaborative project or team management experience, and a track record of leveraging data for business impact. This is a great opportunity for those with experience in Consulting, Banking, Private Equity, Corporate Strategy, or similar roles.
  • Advanced SQL & Excel experience required. Data visualization tool experience a plus.
  • Ability to deep dive into data, identify and quantify opportunities, and design creative and sustainable solutions.
  • Polished communication skills and comfort working with internal and external stakeholders including senior leadership.
  • Proven track record of designing and implementing process improvement projects and improving business metrics in a resource-constrained environment.
