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.


We're looking for a consummate professional who has a passion for equity solutions and an eye for detail. As an Equity Analyst, you will participate in strategic conversations about equity operations, and get into the weeds of day-to-day stock administration.
