About the Team

It’s an exciting time to join our rapidly growing Tax team and be a part of the fast growth the Company is experiencing, particularly with New Verticals and other new product initiatives! The Tax team is heavily involved in the operations of the business that impact Dashers, Merchants and Customers. As a key partner to the business, we are involved at the front end on plans for new products and country expansions as well as the sales and onboarding process with new Merchants.

  • Think long-term while also rolling up your sleeves and getting to the lowest level of detail on tax matters that impact DoorDash.
  • Communicate with stakeholders at all levels on project plans and important issues.
  • Manage external advisors as necessary.
