The Business Strategy Team at Postmates works on solving key business problems -- whatever is most pressing for the company at a given point in time. Our goal is to use data to help the company make the right decisions, address key challenges and identify new ways to grow.

As a Business Strategy Manager at Postmates, you directly support the executive team in assessing new opportunities and executing on ideas.

Examples of recent work include assessing acquisition opportunities, modeling new pricing structures, developing category expansion strategy to guide Business Development, and building merchant value metrics to inform Sales operations and structure. Your 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, your views will be reviewed directly by our CEO and you will have end-to-end ownership of key initiatives that shape the future of Postmates. You must be comfortable with execution and accountability. We will implement your ideas.
