About the Team
The New Business Verticals team is building multiple lines of business across Grocery, Convenience, Alcohol, Retail and DashMart.

About the Role
We’re hiring an Associate Manager who will help to shape our CPG partnership strategy from the ground up. You will build and define how we win with CPG manufacturers. From initiatives around data sharing to in store availability, to annual joint business planning, category management and consumer insights - this role will be critical to the success of our CPG efforts.
You will report to the Director leading our CPG Strategy & Operations team. This role can be remote or based in any of our DoorDash office locations.
You’re excited about this opportunity because you will…

- Work externally with CPG manufacturers both large and small to help identify initiatives that can help to best serve our customers, dashers and merchant partners.
- Be comfortable working in a nascent team where you’ll test, iterate and build long term strategy.
- Help to develop our CPG data reporting framework, helping CPG manufacturers better understand and connect with the DoorDash consumer.
We’re excited about you because…
- You have 4+ years of experience working within the Consumer Product Goods industry (i.e. manufacturer, retailer, distributor or service provider such as a syndicated data provider)
- You have experience working with large datasets, analyzing data to help identify trends and formulating strategic plans. SQL experience preferred.
- You enjoy forming relationships cross functionally and externally, and anchor your thinking in finding solutions for the customer (either CPG, consumer or Merchant).
- You’re excited to work in an early stage team which is fast paced and evolving, and you have an energy and interest in the CPG industry.
