About the Role

As one of DoorDash’s core operations teams, Customer Experience is tasked with ensuring that there’s always someone there to help make things right when complications arise with fulfilling a delivery. Our team designs, manages and operates DoorDash’s large and growing global network of support centres, with the ultimate goal of delivering an effortless support experience, every time. 

You will be responsible for ensuring every one of our consumers, merchants, and dashers get the help they need at the moment they need it. This will require building a high-performing team to continuously improve our operations as we scale rapidly. 

  • This is a senior and cross functional leadership role that will be accountable for the success of customer experience– including CSAT and cost–in Japan.
  • This person will be expected to oversee strategy development, execution, and resource procurement to enable growth and retention in the market. 
  • They will need to “operate at the lowest level of detail”, methodically solving problems big and small-- such as one customer’s complaint or a process affecting millions.

  • Manage the daily, weekly and monthly operations of DoorDash’s first international contact centre
  • Have the opportunity to grow into a broader role as we grow both within Japan and internationally

We’re excited about you because you… 

  • Have a demonstrated track record of success with 8+ years of experience in support operations, product operations, general management, management consulting, or equivalent experience
  • Are comfortable building, leading, and motivating a large, high performing team in a rapidly evolving operations environment
  • Can manage a broad portfolio of initiatives while effortlessly diving into the details on any given topic  
  • At your core, are a data-driven, analytical problem solver, capable of solving new problems with new solutions
  • Are motivated by an obsession with service quality; you want to do right by our customers and help DoorDash build a world-class customer experience
