Postmates, San Francisco

Delivery from all your favorites places on-demand

Postmates is on a mission to help people unlock the best of their cities -- and their lives, with an insanely reliable on-demand “everything” network. We’re the first and still leading company in the on-demand space -- with a fleet of +200,000 Postmates, the largest network of merchants in the U.S. and a brand that has become a pop culture verb. We’re looking for people who aren’t afraid to be first -- or eccentric, and who are passionate about creating the new, new.

The Brand and Communications team is responsible for managing and growing the Postmates brand by telling the Postmates story at scale in engaging and innovative ways. We are a high-energy team with a passion for people, culture, brand, progressive policymaking, and great storytelling. If you’d like to belong to one of the country’s most dynamic and forward thinking teams, come tell us your story.

Postmates Live is a new company initiative that takes our product out to the real world and brings convenience to guests of live events around the country, from music festivals to sports games, concerts to conventions. We’re looking for an Operations Manager dedicated to bringing these event integrations to life. You’ll work closely with the broader Brand team to manage internal workflows, advance shows, and events with our partners, and coordinate on-site logistics.

You’re organized and detailed, quick to learn technical and operational procedures, and are obsessed with the flawless execution of integrated brand activations. You’re calm under pressure and can multitask and lias between many teams at a time while braving crowds from hundreds to hundreds of thousands of people.
