About Instacart

Instacart is a same-day grocery delivery company delivering groceries and home essentials from a variety of local stores.

Why join us?

  • Very few companies have built the combination of technical and logistical expertise that we have. The only other company to achieve this at scale is Amazon. This means we have a particularly unique and interesting set of challenges to work on here.

  • We have deals with the largest grocery retailers in the country like Costco, Krogers, Albertsons and Sprouts. We're continuing to add more over time as every retailer needs to offer on demand delivery to survive.

  • Our market is huge and difficult to enter. Our biggest competition is Amazon, their goal is to put all the current grocery stores out of business whereas Instacart wants to support them. Google tried to enter this space with Google Express but they failed and shut down. We've succeeded where Google couldn't.

  • We're making money on every delivery. In our business this is an achievement many people thought was impossible. We're scaling this up and growing fast on all of our key metrics e.g. deliveries, user engagement, gross margin.

  • Many people use Instacart as a way to help elderly or sick people get their groceries delivered. We're helping parents across the country find time in their busy schedules to spend more time with their children and worry less about managing groceries.
