We're looking for experienced engineers to join our fast-growing engineering team to help us develop a 24x7, global infrastructure system that powers DoorDash’s three-sided marketplace of consumers, merchants, and dashers.

Product engineers work at the intersection of product and infrastructure to solve key business problems with elegant technical solutions.

  • Develop and define the backend architecture and tech stack for a product area
  • Improve performance, reliability, scalability and security for our backend systems
  • Be involved in transitioning our monolithic codebase to a microservice-based architecture
  • Completely disrupt logistics by tackling bleeding-edge, technical problems

What We're Looking For

  • B.S., M.S., or PhD. in Computer Science or equivalent
  • 5+ years of industry experience
  • Prior experience working with backend tech stacks
  • Able to analyze and improve efficiency, scalability, and stability of various system resources
  • Experience with service oriented architecture, writing REST API’s, unit testing, and architectural design
  • Understanding of modern web stacks and architecture (HTTP, REST)
  • Experience with SQL and NoSQL databases and other technologies (e.g. Postgres, Redis, Elasticsearch, RabbitMQ)

Nice To Haves

  • Experience building large scale, real-time applications
  • Experience with Java/Kotlin
  • Contributor to open source projects
