Financial Analyst, FP&A

| San Francisco

Postmates enables anyone to have just about anything on-demand. We pioneered the on-demand space and currently serve 4,000+ cities with a fleet of more than 400,000 Postmates and the largest network of merchants in the US. We’re changing the landscape of commerce by making cities our warehouses, providing the delivery infrastructure, and connecting our customers to any product, anywhere, anytime. Postmates isn’t just an app, it’s a way of life and a part of pop culture. We are the O.G. of on-demand and we’ve given people a new superpower — the ability to Postmate anything from anywhere. We’re building a movement to make Postmates a verb: Postmate it.

Postmates’ Finance team is looking for a Financial Analyst that will enhance our financial planning and analysis capabilities, involving everything from creating the company’s monthly financial forecast, to managing data and presenting insights to senior leadership. This person will be proactive and detail-oriented with strong technical skills and excellent written/verbal communication abilities.

This critical position will be responsible for the preparation of key monthly financial reporting, ad hoc analysis during major planning cycles, tracking of KPIs, and creating dashboards and tools to review existing and new initiatives. As a Financial Analyst, you will help us unlock insights from enormous consumer, commerce, and logistics datasets. You will use your full toolkit - finance background, SQL query writing, data analysis, and synthesis -- to report out what's happening and recommend what to do next.  You must be comfortable with execution and accountability, as we will implement your ideas.

OUR REQUIREMENTS

  • At least 2 years of finance work experience (FP&A preferred)
  • BSc in an analytical field required
  • SQL database experience is a plus, including database management and query design
  • Strong modeling skills
  • Strong Excel skills and ability to parse and crunch through large datasets
  • Exceptionally detail-oriented; able to execute big-picture analysis while never losing sight of the finer points
  • Comfortable with ambiguity and effective at juggling multiple priorities simultaneously in a fast-paced environment
  • Curious and scrappy, approaching questions with scientific rigor, but can execute pragmatically
  • Highly motivated, enjoy working in teams, and thrive working independently

    • Competitive salary and generous equity plan
    • Access to the Postmates 401(k) plan

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.

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.

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.
