Postmates — good to join 2019?

Jun 27, 2019 15 Comments

Looking at Postmates, Bellevue office for a senior eng position.

Should I interview? Possible to strike it rich in upcoming IPO? Are they still giving out decent options packages?

I’m getting sick of corporate bureaucracy and might want to try a pre-IPO company where I can have a big impact. But I saw a lot of hate for Postmates on Blind last year.

Also what’s the Bellevue office like?

    From what I know of them, I’d stay away. They started earlier than Uber eats and Doordash and are much smaller than both of them. The chance that you’ll have a perfect delivery is 50/50. They’ll randomly charge you extra after you have placed your order.

    Not sure what people are complaining about. Joined recently, and absolutely love it. Culture is awesome, benefits are so-so, but the WFH is good. Very remote friendly, and people are smart/good engineers, at least on my team.

    OP
    I just used them once but they forgot part of the order so I was annoyed. I’m impressed that they’re actually planning for IPO this year though.

    @BangTrue! What are the problems there that your folks complain about?

      Join postmates and make sure they don't miss any parts of their orders again.

    If you don't like corporate bureaucracy this is the wrong place for you.
