We're transforming the grocery industry

Instacart is the North American leader in online grocery and one of the fastest-growing companies in e-commerce. Since 2012, we’ve been working towards creating a world where everyone has access to the food they love and more time to enjoy it together. 

Groceries delivered to your door in as little as an hour. It seems simple, right? Well, it’s more complex than that. From re-routing deliveries during snowstorms, to connecting customers with coupons and deals for their favorite brands, to updating over half a billion grocery data lines every night...our efforts bring Instacart closer to being the operating system for the grocery industry.

Solving these problems is what helps our customers get back time in their day, so they can do more of what they love.

Introducing Our Hybrid Working Model

As the future of work evolves, so do we. We have a hybrid model where our roles are open to in-office, flex, or remote work.  Learn more about our flexible approach to where we work.



The mission of the Ads Measurement team is to build the data and reporting foundation to communicate the value of partnering with Instacart Ads. We want to be the top choice for the CPGs (Consumer Product Goods companies) to understand how their consumers interact with their Brands worldwide. To achieve this we are building an authoritative, data source for all of the CPG related metrics. The team works closely with other Ads teams, Catalog, and Data Engineering gathering the data from multiple sources, running Data pipelines, aggregating a lot of complex business data and generating the metrics that matter to the CPGs.

This team is growing rapidly, has doubled in size in the first half of this year and is expected to maintain the same growth trajectory for the rest of the year.  We are looking for Engineering Leadership in both San Francisco and Toronto.

  • You will help prioritize work for your team, making difficult tradeoffs on design based on business constraints, ensuring on-time deliverables and high-quality software
  • You will provide hands-on technical management, guidance, and support including system/design/code review, and ultimately be responsible for the health of the systems your team builds.
  • You will participate in interviewing, hiring decisions, on-boarding, and mentoring of new engineers with the goal of quickly making them productive members of your team.
  • You will develop a team culture of ownership that reinforces the core values of Instacart!


We rely on our values to guide our decisions: Solve for the Customer, Every Minute Counts, This is Your Baby, Go Far, Together and Of Course, But Maybe. What does this mean for your role? We are looking for someone who has:

  • Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering or equivalent work experience
  • 8+ years of experience managing a team of software engineers
  • A strong understanding of engineering systems and experience with backend development
