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.

What are some things you learned at the company?

As a large company that is growing quickly, there is still a huge appetite for trying new things; in fact, it's the expectation. There is no 'cookie-cutter' approach.
