  • Strategize – You’ll drive our Dasher strategy in the US and will be responsible for delivering world-class quality in our US markets. To do this, you’ll manage some of the highest-leverage inputs to Consumer and Dasher growth, such as how quickly deliveries get completed, how effectively our pay model incentivizes Dashers, how well we utilize Dashers’ time when they are dashing, and more.
  • Problem-Solve - You’ll use data to help uncover and solve complex operational and behavior-driven problems to drive growth and profitability in our most challenging and competitive markets.

  • Experiment – You’ll devise tests and use data-driven decision making to drive both the business and the product forward.
  • Influence – You’ll work cross-functionally with our Operations, Drive, Marketing, Product, Engineering, Finance, Analytics, Sales, Account Management, and Business Development teams to meet and exceed ambitious market goals.

About you

  • Self-starter – You have a bias towards action and are able to thrive in a fast-paced, constantly changing work environment.
  • Naturally curious – You’re obsessed with the number and love getting into the details to understand why it moves the way it moves.
  • Entrepreneurial – You crave responsibility and want to shape the vision and direction of the company.
  • Gritty – You don’t hesitate to roll up your sleeves, and you thrive at both the 1000-foot view and ground level.
  • Relationship-builder – You can influence and motivate people at all levels across a variety of job functions.
  • Problem solver – You can independently translate high-level goals into actionable plans.


  • 1-3 years of experience in consulting, strategy, business development, operations, technology, banking, analytics or related experience; high-growth or early-stage start-up experience is a plus
  • Proven track record of leading initiatives, hitting goals, and succeeding in a team environment
  • Expert communication and interpersonal skills
  • Advanced Excel skills; SQL knowledge is a plus
