About the Team
The Expansion-as-a-Service/New Restaurant Models team focuses on understanding new types of restaurant business models (e.g., virtual brands, ghost kitchens) and new types of restaurant segments that DoorDash has not yet penetrated (e.g., food trucks, home chefs, farmers markets, pop-ups). We help restaurants innovate and test new models on DoorDash, and we aim to make sure that all types of restaurants and food entrepreneurs can use DoorDash to grow their business.
About the Role
You will be responsible for defining DoorDash’s strategy with the next wave of restaurant models, including home chefs, food trucks, celebrity virtual brands, food pop-ups, and farmers markets.
You will be empowered to run these verticals end-to-end. For example, you may be working on understanding challenges and opportunities facing home chefs in the US. You will develop a point-of-view on what DD should do in the home chef category, and quickly create a game plan for how you will achieve that strategy. Ultimately, you will be directly responsible for implementing your strategic ideas, iterating in real time, and growing these business segments.
You will report into a Senior Manager on the Expansion-as-a-Service/New Rx Models team on our Merchant Strategy & Operations team

- Execute your ideas in a fast-paced, constantly evolving environment
- Be responsible for delivering direct business impact and growth to DoorDash
- Work cross-functionally across product, marketing, sales, etc. and also work directly with DoorDash merchants and customers
We’re excited about you because…
- You love to problem solve and feel comfortable managing ambiguity
- You can quickly develop a game plan on your own, with little context and background needed
- You are comfortable being scrappy and working in a start-up like environment (e.g. calling up DoorDash customers to understand their perspective, testing creative solutions)
- You can simultaneously think about high level strategy, while also diving deep into the lowest level of detail
