What You’ll Be Doing


As the Product Manager for Cart & Checkout, you will lead a cross-functional team focused on creating a best-in-class shopping experience and purchase process for Instacart customers. This starts with building a streamlined shopping cart experience that is both efficient and intuitive even when our average customer is buying over 15 unique items per order. It continues with working relentlessly to improve the checkout and payment user experience – unsurprisingly vital in both our acquisition and retention growth funnels. Finally, you will set and drive the direction for Cart & Checkout as a platform. Leading with platform-level thinking and providing ongoing support to other teams will be critically important given many of the current and upcoming strategic company priorities will depend on the quality and modularity of the checkout platform.

You will accomplish these big goals by working with our Design, Engineering, Data science, Finance and Operations teams to develop, prioritize, and execute roadmaps, strategic plans, and individual projects/features in the relevant product areas.
