About the Team

The Ads & Promotions team's mission is to make DoorDash the best place for businesses to market their brand to local customers. As one of the newest and fastest growing teams within DoorDash, we work within a complex ecosystem, balancing the needs of advertisers, merchants, and consumers. We’re realizing DoorDash’s mission of empowering local businesses everywhere by helping them reach their customers. In parallel, we help consumers to find more of what they love and make shopping more affordable for everyone.

Our Advertiser Platform consists of foundational capabilities, frameworks, and systems that power all ad experiences on DoorDash. We partner with other teams to turn these foundations into powerful tools for advertisers and merchants, and intuitive experiences for consumers. This team is for designers who think deeply about systems design and enjoy being pioneers in spaces where design does not traditionally operate.

About the Role

We’re looking for an experienced Product Designer to envision and build our Advertiser Platform from the ground up. You’ll design experiences that help advertisers and internal operators be successful, while creating the infrastructure that empowers other teams to build high quality ads products at scale. You’ll not only help us reach our goals, you’ll also contribute a user-centric mindset, establishing frameworks for all advertiser experiences across DoorDash. In close collaboration with designers and cross-functional teams throughout the company, you’ll build the foundations of our advertising platform that connects brands and local businesses to 20 million+ users on DoorDash.

You will report into the Design Manager, Ads and Promos on our Merchant Design team in our Design Organization. We expect this role to be hybrid with some time in-office and some time remote.

You’re excited about this opportunity because you will…

  • Contribute directly to DoorDash's product strategy and define the future of our service.
  • Explore complex, ambiguous problem spaces, working with your team to understand the opportunity and then chart a path forward.
  • Explore and refine your design solutions through wireframes, prototypes, and high-fidelity visual design.
  • Influence your team's approach to product development, shaping the team's culture and best practices.
  • Collaborate with teams across our company to establish a shared understanding of the problem space, bring people together to solve complex challenges, and create space for others to contribute.
  • Help merchants grow their businesses and improve the lives of millions of DoorDash customers every day.

We’re excited about you because…

  • You are a Staff Designer with 7+ years of experience.
  • You excel at collaborating across lots of different functions beyond Product Design.
  • You translate complex domains and problems into intuitive experiences for end-users.
  • You guide teams through ambiguous challenges, taking ownership for every last detail, every step of the way.
  • You understand users’ needs, motivations and behaviors, and translate them into impactful results.
  • As a design leader, you mentor others and advocate for product quality and well crafted visual design.
