Manager, Business Operations & Strategy

Postmates, San Francisco

Delivery from all your favorites places on-demand

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.

At Postmates, customers are the center of our business.  Our customer support team delights customers by providing fast, consistent, and world-class customer service from highly skilled agents using powerful tools and systems. We want all of our customers to have a high touch, personalized service experience and you’ll be at the forefront of understanding  how. You will use your full toolkit -- SQL,  business analysis, financial modelling -- to report out what’s happening and recommend what to do next. Your goal is to use data and sound business judgement to develop & implement strategies that will drive major improvements in the business. In this role, your ideas will be reviewed directly by our executive team and you will have end-to-end ownership of the key initiatives that shape the future of Postmates. You must be comfortable with execution and accountability.

We’re looking for someone with an insatiable curiosity who is always asking why. Someone who can translate simple questions into complex analysis and translate them back into straightforward language. We love learning, and we expect that you will learn new things and teach us new things as we revolutionize the future of customer service.
