About the Team

DoorDash is looking for qualified candidates to join our growing Merchant Strategy & Operations organization. The Merchant team powers many facets of our business: we aim to provide best-in-class restaurant selection, reduce friction for new merchants joining our platform, and build products/services that enhance the Merchant experience. Within the Merchant organization, the New Verticals team is focused on building and scaling new categories (Grocery, Retail, Alcohol, and more) from the ground up.

About the Role

You will work with multiple teams to help build and set the strategy across our business lines outside of restaurants on the DoorDash Platform. You will report to our Sr. Manager, Merchant Strategy & Operations. We're looking for someone who loves data, an expert in execution who succeeds working across many teams, and a strategy builder who is excited to build and implement structure. Join our pursuit to build a platform that delivers the full neighborhood and strategize how we bring on merchants across industries - and set them up for success.

You're excited about this opportunity because you will…

  • Build. You'll have your fingerprints all over DoorDash's most impactful new verticals. You are eager to launch new merchants, design onboarding processes, and define new product features. This is everything from high-level strategy to day-to-day operational management to move the needle in the right direction.
  • Analyze. You'll create models to define selection success, develop and track new project-specific KPIs, and run ad-hoc tests to confirm market hypotheses.
  • Strategize. You'll develop the strategy for best serving our merchants while balancing the needs of our customers and dashers, and will help us set annual & quarterly targets to ensure we are delivering on our mission to create value for Merchants, Customers, and Dashers.
  • Collaborate. You'll work with a cross-functional team, including sales, product, marketing, operations, and finance to drive success in these new categories.

We're excited about you because…

  • You have 4+ years of experience in consulting, strategy & operations, banking or related function. Startup and/or technology experience is a plus.
  • You have experience leading fast-paced projects cross-functionally, but you are also comfortable switching between individual contributor and workstream owner as different projects may require.
  • You solve problems from first principles. You're excited to operate in innovative ways, and you understand when to leverage existing "this is how it's always been done" methodology vs. brainstorming new modes of operation.
  • You're analytical. You let data win arguments, and you're comfortable both pulling your own data in SQL and modeling in Excel (can perform complex functions).
  • You're equally comfortable operating at 10,000 feet and 1 foot. You don't hesitate to get in the weeds and operate at the lowest level of detail, but you're comfortable with switching between short- and long- term focuses to ensure day-to-day progress ladders up into strategic company objectives.
  • You're unafraid of change and you move fast. Rapid change and learning is exciting to you, and you thrive in ambiguous, evolving environments.
