Job description

WHO WE ARE

Postmates is disrupting local commerce by making everything in your city available to be delivered in minutes. This has unlocked on-demand local shopping — providing consumers the convenience of super fast delivery for the largest selection of goods (anything in the whole city!); the benefit and scale of e-commerce for local merchants; and more flexible work for couriers.

This is a tall order, and Postmates relies heavily on our engineering applications and systems to realize this vision. Even though we are already a billion dollar business with millions of customers in 3000+ US cities trusting us with more than 2M orders every month, we have only just started our technical journey to build our technology stack in a way that can keep up with our rapid growth.

WHAT WE DO

Postmates runs one of the largest marketplaces in the country, connecting consumers, merchants, and Postmates in real-time. Building high powered intelligence atop our large-scale dataset is a serious challenge and we are looking for candidates who are ready to dig in. Postmates isn’t just another ad platform or mobile app for delivering static user generated content: We have real customers paying real money for a real service, all on-demand.

WHAT YOU'LL DO

As a Sr Engineering Manager, you will be responsible for leading one or more teams of engineers on all aspects (client, frontend, backend) of product development. You will partner with product management, data analytics, business operations and other engineering leaders to build and deliver the roadmap of your teams. You will participate in technical design and planning while providing guidance for engineers to ensure they execute well everyday. Finally, as we’re scaling explosively, you’ll have lots of opportunities to build & grow the teams via hiring & mentoring.

To accomplish this, you are expected to have an established background in building high-performing teams developing highly scalable systems and delivering cross-functional initiatives. You should be somebody who enjoys recruiting & coaching, is customer-centric, and feels strongly about delivering results.

REQUIREMENTS

  • Bachelors in Computer Science or a related field
  • 10+ years of experience in building impactful and technically complex software systems
  • 5+ years of progressive experience in managing and building engineering teams
  • Proven expertise in building large-scale web applications and distributed systems
  • Accomplished technical leader with strong track record delivering results at high speed and quality

PREFERRED QUALIFICATIONS

  • Advanced degree in Computer Science or a related field
  • 2+ years of experience building delightful client applications
  • 2+ years of experience in delivery, logistics, or transportation products

BENEFITS

Postmates has your back. In our impact-first work environment, we value huge company vision. As you strive to build the future with us, we’ll support you with a competitive salary and equity plan, along with access to our 401k plan and robust benefits including: health benefits, flexible paid time off, parental benefits, and food perks.
