Instacart’s Operations team works with tens of thousands of shoppers, developing fulfillment models, driving quality and efficiency, and ultimately providing an amazing experience for our customers. We make decisions every day that directly impact millions of grocery deliveries and the Operations Analyst sits right at the center of those critical decisions. The Operations Analyst will report directly to the Regional Director of Operations solving our most pressing problems and bringing an analytical data-driven approach to every decision that we make.
