Job Description:

Postmates runs the largest on-demand delivery platform in the country, we grow 5-10% week on week and fulfill over a million deliveries each month. We aren't just another ad platform or mobile app for serving static user generated content-we have real customers, real couriers and real merchants using the platform to buy, sell and deliver goods in under an hour.
As a Backend Software Engineer, you'll primarily be developing and maintaining features of our API and internal tools. On any given day you might be working on new features for our customers, couriers or merchants-refactoring existing code to be more scalable and performant. We need engineers who aren't afraid to attack deep technical challenges as well as have a meaningful role in product development.
Our backend infrastructure is primarily Python, Django and Go. We like to use the full set of tools and services available to us from Amazon Web Services to build out new functionality in a service-oriented environment. We value fullstack, generalist, and specialized engineers looking to expand their capabilities. You will be developing new services and deploying them within an immutable infrastructure. We want people that will get their hands dirty to understand our mobile and web clients; with a healthy interest in Javascript, Objective-C, Swift and Java.

  • Write robust application code that powers the company's demanding mobile and web-based client APIs
  • Refactor existing software and functionality into discrete services
  • Build prototypes to quickly demonstrate new features and product ideas
  • Work closely within a product-focused team of engineers, designers and product managers

    • Buyer Team
    • Fleet Team
    • Fulfillment & Dispatch Team
    • Merchant & Partner Team
    • Data Engineer & Data Science Team

    • Participate in code reviews
    • Participate in team on-call schedule


      • Competitive salary and generous stock option plan (stay aligned with the long term value you create)
      • Medical, dental and vision insurance
      • Whatever computer, monitor, standing desk, keyboard mouse you need
      • Impact-first work environment (no politics, no pandering)
      • Huge company vision (we need you to build the future, not just maintain the status quo)
      • Contribute to open source projects (full support to release and contribute to projects)
