About Postmates

Job Description

Postmates runs one of the largest on-demand delivery platforms in the country, fulfilling millions of deliveries each month across the United States. We aren't just another ad platform or mobile app for serving static user-generated content; we have real customers, merchants and couriers using the platform to buy, sell and deliver goods on-demand.

We work on 3 Android apps here at Postmates: the Buyer, Fleet, and Merchant apps.

Engineers have high impact and are relied upon to own end-to-end deployment/support of our applications. Ideal candidates should have developed several native Android applications with complex functionality and significant user bases. Bonus points if you've worked with Kotlin, Jetpack Architecture Components, RxJava, Retrofit, or Dagger. Experience with Go, Python, or Google Protocol Buffers is a plus.
