ABOUT THE JOB
The Catalog team is responsible for defining how products should be represented to customers. We spend a lot of time focusing on questions like - What do customers want to know when they buy meat for dinner? How do we help customers discover new products to love by knowing more about what’s in the grocery store than they do? What data is needed to tailor our Catalog to a specific customer’s preferences and dietary needs? You’ll be joining a team of individuals that are passionate about answering these questions.
Our Catalog’s data powers our customer experiences, our advertisements, our shopper app, and our retailer platform - as such, this role works closely with our product and engineering teams across our whole business. This role works with both the Catalog and other Instacart engineering teams to understand data quality issues and work with product and engineering to build systems to find and proactively prevent data issues in the future. You will be joining our rapidly growing Catalog team - a group responsible for managing over 5 billion data points (and growing) that represent assortments from retailers from across North America.
