We’re looking for a hands-on builder and leader to help launch and scale special projects.

New Verticals is a new, lean team at DoorDash.  We’re building and scaling new ways to delight our customers, leveraging the DoorDash platform.

What You’ll Do 

  • Build.  You’ll have your fingerprints all over DoorDash’s next big business.  You’ll do whatever it takes to launch, get 1% better every day, and scale something completely new.  This means everything from high-level strategy to nitty-gritty operational details.
  • Strategize.  From first principles, you’ll develop the optimal strategy for best serving our customers.
  • Analyze.  You’ll assess the operational and financial impacts of your decisions, and iterate based on data. 
  • Lead and collaborate.  You’ll work with a cross-functional team, including engineering, product, design, operations, finance, and marketing to build this new line of business for DoorDash.

About You

  • You solve problems from first principles.  You’re excited to solve problems in innovative ways, and you resist “this is how it’s always been done” thinking.
  • 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 just as comfortable thinking long-term and inspiring a team. No job is beneath you.
  • You’re unafraid of ambiguity.  Rapid change and learning is exciting to you, and you thrive in ambiguous, startup environments
  • You’re analytical.  You let data win arguments, and you’re comfortable pulling your own data in SQL or modeling in Excel.
  • You’re relentless.  You do what it takes to win, no matter what.
  • You have 1-4 years of experience.  You’ve succeeded in high-performance cultures (whether in tech, operations, strategy, consulting, banking, or a related experience).
  • You’re open to travel.  This role will require 20%+ travel time.

Bonus Points

  • You have experience starting or scaling a successful startup.
  • You have a demonstrated interest in logistics, on-demand services, and marketplaces.
