What we’re doing

DoorDash is building innovative kitchen formats that cater to the on-demand economy. These are kitchens tailored to off-premise (delivery, catering, pick-up, etc) with a minimum storefront. Our goal is to create the future of food delivery with a faster service and higher quality.

Who you are

You have experience as a leader in one of these industries: food and beverage, hospitality, or logistics/fulfillment in front-of-the house or administrative/facilities roles. You have a passion for customer service and are ready for a new challenge: to reinvent the kitchen for the modern age! You always believe there’s a better way and never settle for mediocre service or product. You are humble and professional and are excited to be a supervisor or dive deeper into our kitchens technology. This role is a great entry point into DoorDash with the opportunity for internal growth.
