Operations Learning and Development Manager


Every day, thousands of Instacart Shoppers deliver perfect produce, make great replacements when items are out of stock, and communicate with their customers throughout the process, and Instacart's Operations team works with tens of thousands of Shoppers, developing fulfillment models, driving quality and efficiency, and ultimately providing an amazing experience for our customers. Our Shoppers, Shift Leads, and Site Managers work in hundreds of retail locations, with processes and procedures that are always evolving. 

The Learning and Development Manager will partner closely with multiple Operation, HR and Product team members, and will be responsible for maintaining the quality and integrity of all Shopper, supervisor, and corporate team member training and ongoing learning and development programs. The manager will build processes that scale across thousands of locations, and have a keen sense for simplifying complex information to make it stick, and the ability to respond rapidly to feedback. The successful candidate is extremely organized and capable of identifying best practices and the latest process improvements from the team, then creating, updating and disseminating training programs to a dispersed team across North America.
