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, couriers and merchants using the platform to buy, sell and deliver goods on-demand. The merchant team sits in the middle of our three-sided marketplace, connecting partner restaurants with couriers and buyers. Our systems enable new partners to quickly get on-boarded and fulfill live orders, but also over time to improve their businesses with insights and other tools.
As an Android Engineer on the Merchant team, you’ll be working on our tablet POS (point-of-sale) solution, responsible for around half of all Postmates transactions! This application runs behind the counter of tens of thousands of our restaurant partners, orchestrating the complex workflow necessary to accept, prepare, and handoff orders for delivery. We’ve recently launched support for customers to do their own pickups as well.
Ideal candidates should have developed several native Android applications with complex functionality and significant user bases. Experience with Python or Google cloud services is a plus; we’re a lean team and own end-to-end deployment/support of our application. Bonus points if you've worked with Kotlin, Jetpack Architecture Components, RxJava, Retrofit, or Dagger.
