About the Team

Drive is DoorDash’s white-label delivery-as-a-service platform, and is one of the fastest growing segments within DoorDash. Its purpose is to realize DoorDash’s mission of empowering local businesses everywhere, by expanding access to DoorDash’s delivery capabilities. With Drive, merchants receive orders through their first-party channels (leveraging their own brand identity and voice), and utilize DoorDash’s delivery fleet to fulfill the order. Drive powers delivery for businesses small and large, from local neighborhood restaurants to national brands with thousands of locations.

This role focuses on growing the Drive Restaurants business. You’ll lead some very exciting initiatives like (1) growing our pizza vertical, building an experience that’s uniquely suited to make pizza deliveries the best in class experience across our audiences (2) growing our catering business, allowing Dashers to pick up large quantities of lunch orders for offices; (3) improving our fulfillment quality through innovative Dasher experiences. You’ll collaborate across both 0-to-1 and platform teams, and work on building experiences that integrate ML/AI models.

  • You have 5+ years of work experience and a strong portfolio showcasing your ability to maintain a high bar for craft at scale and track record of leading new initiatives and delivering results in a team environment.
  • You think of yourself as a craftsperson pushing the envelope on quality, usually find yourself sweating over the lowest level of details and deeply care about elevating the overall experience.
  • You are an excellent storyteller and proactive communicator, and able to communicate complex topics in a clear, concise, and thorough way to stakeholders at all levels of the organization.
  • You’re a problem solver, use a first principles approach and aren’t afraid to try new things to create the future.
