Postmates enables anyone to have just about anything on-demand. We pioneered the on-demand space and currently serve 80% of US households with a fleet of more than 350,000 Postmates and the largest network of merchants in the US. We’re changing the landscape of commerce by making cities our warehouses, providing the delivery infrastructure, and connecting our customers to any product, anywhere, anytime. Postmates isn’t just an app, it’s a way of life and a part of pop culture. We are the O.G. of on-demand and we’ve given people a new superpower — the ability to Postmate anything from anywhere. We’re building a movement to make Postmates a verb: Postmate it.
We are the Community Engagement team and we are champions and advocates for the 400K+ Postmates who choose to earn on our platform. The decisions we make, the policies we create, and the actions we take, have a real human impact. We are subject matter experts in all things Fleet. We have a deep understanding of who a Postmate is, their motivations for earning on our platform, and are actively educating ourselves to be acutely aware of the pain points both on and off the platform.
We are well versed in the Future of Work, and are staunch grassroots advocates for the right to earn flexibly. We build relationships with, form beneficial partnerships, and empower members of our diverse Postmates community across the US to shape the policy frameworks for economic empowerment and opportunity.
Postmates is hiring a Regional Organizer to support our public policy team and goals in the US-West region. The regional organizer will develop strong relationships with fleet members, merchants, and people in the Postmates Community. You’ll execute engagement strategies inside local and statewide markets, supporting and promoting Postmates policy initiatives as well as shaping legislative agendas through grassroots mobilization. The organizer will report to the Mobilization Manager and will be a key part of building the Postmates Community and achieving public policy progress for the Postmates community nationwide.
The most crucial role you’ll play as Regional Organizer is building community with our Postmates fleet and allies in our network. There are policy issues – local and statewide – that impact our Postmates fleet directly. We want to engage our community on these issues and mobilize them to make their voice heard. This person will also help execute cross functional projects at the local level.
The ideal candidate will have experience and training in community organizing, ideally as a Lead Organizer or other management role; effective communication skills (including those relevant to the communities with whom we organize); emotional intelligence; comfort or fluency in multiple ethnic and religious communities; a passion for people’s leadership and growth; a track record of developing other people’s leadership; and lastly a passion for Postmates and changing the future of work.
Postmates has your back. In our impact-first work environment, we value huge company vision. As you strive to build the future with us, we’ll support you with a competitive salary and equity plan, along with access to our 401k plan and robust benefits including: health benefits, flexible paid time off, parental benefits, and food perks.
