Design at Postmates

We’re a tribe of creative, collaborative individuals passionate about crafting the Postmates brand magic and experiences that delight all customers, merchants, and couriers of our three-sided marketplace. We push the status quo to uncover bold ideas that help connect the best of a city with our customers and change delivery for good.

WHAT WE DO

From stories to sketches, prototypes to pixels, the Postmates Design Team crafts the experiences that bring a city closer together, empowering local commerce through a simple touch. As part of our rapidly growing team, you'll work closely with the founders and product team in crafting the future of the company. Specifically, as one of our dedicated Product Designers, you'll be key in building the Design Team as well as the foundation for how our customers, couriers, and partners use our services.

You'll be responsible for designing beautiful interfaces that help people connect deeply with all that their cities have to offer.  As one of our Product Designers you'll be working on customer-facing interfaces on mobile, web, and beyond. This also includes creative campaigns, educational resources, videos, and visual systems that support our brand identity. There is an emphasis on visual design for this role, but having UX and interaction design experience is also preferred.

Working directly with Product and Engineering we'll design and implement beautiful, intuitive experiences together. Beyond visual and interaction design, if you happen to have development skills we'll consider that a major plus!

  • Initiate, lead, and ship projects
  • Articulate design decisions in individual and group critiques
  • Document the visual systems you build
  • Mentor and train new designers on the team

REQUIREMENTS

  • 4+ years experience that includes visual, UX, and interaction design
  • Excellent proficiency with Sketch and Adobe Creative Suite
  • Solid understanding of grid systems and typography
  • You're more concerned with the 'why' than the 'how'
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills
  • Attention to detail
  • Bachelor's degree, or equivalent experience, required

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.

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.

Software Engineer

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.
