Empowering people

Ingredients to earn on your terms

At Instacart, we’re committed to creating a world where everyone has access to the food they love and more time to enjoy it together. We accomplish this by building a community that cares deeply about serving customers and working closely with our retail partners. Whether it’s in-store shoppers who pick and fulfill customer orders at local retailers, full-service shoppers who shop and deliver to customers’ doorsteps, or employees who support everything behind the scenes, we all contribute in different ways to our common vision for the families and communities we serve. Because we value what each person brings to the table, we provide flexible opportunities to work and offer a range of competitive pay and perks across our community.

Perks and offerings

Work is just one of the ingredients in a full life. We believe in supporting our Instacart community and their families’ overall health and wellness to support their whole life. We offer a range of benefits, perks and offerings depending on one’s role in delivering the Instacart experience – all aimed at attracting and retaining people committed to our mission.

For our more than 600,000 shoppers, these include access to a free health savings account (HSA) to help set aside funds for healthcare expenses, along with discounts or savings on wellness products, gasoline, cell phone plans, roadside assistance, auto service and warranties, and more.

For in-store shoppers and employees alike, we support their personal growth and development by investing in their training and education. This ranges from free access to a robust library of lessons on valuable ways to hone shopping skills to help navigating student loan repayment. We also provide various discounts and recognition programs.

Fostering a culture of belonging

We welcome everyone in the Instacart community as they are and celebrate the unique paths and experiences that have brought them to our table. At Instacart, Diversity, Equity, and Belonging encompasses everything from increasing representation, cultivating belonging, and developing talent, to social impact initiatives that nurture our communities, and product design that enables access to everyone, all while uplifting brands from historically underrepresented owners. We prioritize a race, ethnicity and gender equity-focused approach to achieve parity in our systems and processes.
