About the Team

The Communications team tells the story of how DoorDash empowers local economies by connecting customers to the best of their communities. The team is a collaborative group with important partners, touching every corner of the organization. A roll-up-your-sleeves attitude, meticulous attention to detail, and out-of-the-box thinking, coupled with a true team spirit and the ability to juggle projects and priorities, are what makes this group so effective. A role on this team will require expertise in media relations, policy communications and issues management.

About the Role

  • Develop and manage communications programs for Policy, Social Impact, and Trust and Safety initiatives to help shape DoorDash’s strategic narrative, working closely with Policy, Legal, and other teams.
  • Lead public affairs campaigns that align with both policy and business priorities to advance policy objectives and help grow the business. 
  • Assist in issues management, advance planning and scenario mapping to develop response plans and materials for various potential issues. 
  • Develop media engagement strategies and enhance our relationship with essential media and influencers at the national, state and local level by telling the story of how DoorDash empowers local economies.

We’re excited about you because…

  • You have 7+ years experience managing and executing public affairs campaigns and working with national and local media outlets to help advance public policy objectives. 
  • You have experience working in fast-paced, fluid and challenging environments, and are familiar with the tech space and related issues. 
  • You’ve demonstrated cross-functional leadership, taking ownership of communications programs and building strategic plans in a complex organization with varied priorities.
  • You have excellent people and project management skills, with the ability to lead and manage multiple time-sensitive projects under tight deadlines.
  • You are a master communicator, inclusive of listening and speaking, and a true leader, collaborator, and consensus builder. 
  • You’re a self-starter, intrinsically motivated but also a good teammate.
  • You take your work, but not yourself, seriously—and maintain a good sense of humor about both.
