What We Value

We rely on our values to guide our decisions

Without a customer, there would be no Instacart.

Thinking big is in the DNA of Instacart, and sometimes to think big you have to turn the world upside down.

If we can learn faster,
we can make better
decisions, better
products and build a better experience.

There’s a saying: If you want to go fast, go alone. But if you want to go far, go together.

If everybody truly cares and takes ownership, brings 110% to the table, we will succeed.

Each team plays an instrumental role in our success.
This is how we play as a team:

Customer shops on Instacart from local stores’ inventory

Laura B. Catalog Operations Analyst

We pull live inventory from our grocery partners across the nation. Our Catalog team processes and manages the accuracy of all of the items on Instacart.com.

Customer places an order

Justin R. Los Angeles Operations Manager

In every city we have hundreds of shoppers standing by ready to start your order. We work with 3 different teams to get an order delivered perfectly.

Expert shopper picks order

Francisco G. Product Designer – Shopper App

Thousands of Shoppers use our Shopper App to fulfill orders in a timely manner. Every item is accurately displayed and picking is crucial to the success of every order.

Finishing touches on order

Deepak T. Data Scientist

There are a lot of complexities across every app at Instacart. We work hard to ensure orders are delivered on time and Shoppers are making the best use of their time.

Delivery to homes, offices, everywhere!

Lexie Q. Customer Happiness Specialist

We support our Shoppers and Customers round the clock until every issue and support call is resolved up until the last order is delivered.

We derive inspiration from each other and our local community.
This is how we come together to put it all to good use.
