June 23, 2022
To celebrate Juneteenth and honor our commitment to address food insecurity – an issue that disproportionately impacts the Black community – yesterday our team participated in a company-wide Day of Action. We rolled up our sleeves and served generously by volunteering at several Feeding America local food banks, including SF-Marin Food Bank, Atlanta Community Food Bank, City Harvest, Three Square Food Bank. Our teams also packed backpacks for kids with Hamilton Families and volunteered with SF City Impact to cook meals and create hygiene kits, among other activities. Together we packed and distributed over 70,000 pounds of food for 20,000 families! We believe that we have a shared responsibility to lean into the opportunities where we can make an impact, and for us, that’s focusing on combating food insecurity in the communities we live and work in.

We're celebrating our 10-year anniversary! As much as we’ve accomplished over our first decade — including delivering 859 million bananas! — we’re even more excited for what’s to come: helping retailers and brand partners grow their businesses, building a more connected online and offline consumer experience, and making grocery shopping less transactional and more inspirational and personal. As part of this milestone, our CEO Fidji Simo penned a blog post reflecting on Instacart's growth and momentum to-date and the our ambitious vision for the next 10 years. The piece chronicles major moments in grocery history and highlights the important role technology has to play in grocery’s continued evolution. It’s been quite a decade - here’s to the next 10!

    I applied online. I interviewed at Instacart (United States)


    I went through all the on-site interviews. After that, the recruiter reached out to me and asked for additional information and said the feedback I got was positive. However, I didn't hear back from the recruiter even after I followed up.
