About the Team
The Logistics organization at DoorDash is looking for an Engineering Manager with a strong product sense to oversee the Dasher Growth/Supply Acquisition teams. We envision this team will enable DoorDash to fulfill demand by acquiring new Dashers at the lowest cost, converting prospects to do their first dash and retaining them on our platform. The team focuses primarily on three areas:
- Acquisition: Getting high quality prospects at the lowest cost.
- Conversion: Converting prospects to do their first delivery.
- Retention: Mitigating new Dasher churn.
This team is responsible for the real-time delivery fleet that powers DoorDash’s primary business, from the products / ML to incentivize and develop high quality dashers to the platformic infrastructure that consumes streams of events from all sides of the marketplace and takes action to keep deliveries on track. This team has a direct impact on every dasher executing deliveries for DoorDash! The Growth team contains back-end, front-end and mobile engineers and will work across multiple platforms. You will partner with product leads, operations and data scientists to power upper-funnel growth and on-time fulfillment of billions of orders a year across 1P and 3P use-cases, and build experiences that delight DoorDash’s customers.
