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.

Juan

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.
