WHAT WE DO
The Finance & Business Strategy Team at Postmates works on solving key business problems. Our goal is to use data to help the company make the right decisions, address key challenges and identify new ways to grow and impact the company’s Financial performance.
As a Business Analyst at Postmates, you focus on driving critical business insights for our executive team and partner with leaders throughout the company to assess new opportunities and execute on ideas.

Examples of recent work include developing pricing strategies, identifying new growth initiatives, and building a pipeline of partnership opportunities. You will spend roughly 20% of your time on strategy (planning, prioritization, and decision making) and 80% on execution (putting plans into action), and you will work closely with Product, Growth, Sales and Business Development.
In this role, you will report into the VP of Revenue and your views will be reviewed directly by our executive team and you will have end-to-end ownership of key initiatives that shape the future of Postmates.
