About the Team

The DoorDash legal team has built a strong reputation within the company for the confident, supportive approach to our style of counsel, always with a bias for action. Our north star is delighting our business partners and our teammates, and we deeply value growing together as a team. Most of all, we are passionate about our work, and what we have built as a company, and we are always looking for opportunities to get better at what we do.

About the Role

We are hiring an experienced, business-minded Senior Contracts Manager on the Commercial Legal team to negotiate complex agreements with enterprise restaurant merchants. As a Senior Contracts Manager, you will work closely with business development, accounting, contract operations, and many others. You’re tasked with delivering quick turnarounds on contracts, finding creative solutions to big and small problems, analyzing complicated contract structures, and driving process improvements to support the business.

The Senior Contracts Manager will also manage a team of outsourced attorneys who perform more routine functions and negotiations. You’ll be responsible for determining what work to outsource, assigning the work, and being a point of escalation for questions.

You will report into a Legal Director on our Commercial Legal team in our best-in-class Legal Department.

You’re excited about this opportunity because you will…

  • Negotiate complex agreements with our most important enterprise restaurant merchants.
  • Manage a team of outsourced legal professionals who perform more routine negotiations for those merchants, leaving time for the team to focus on the most complex, interesting, and difficult ones.
  • Use your experience to scale negotiations - improvements to templates, processes, technology, and more.
  • Learn our business at the lowest level of detail.
  • Work alongside the best, brightest, and warmest legal team in the industry.

We’re excited about you because…

  • You have 10+ years of experience negotiating agreements with tough enterprise clients.
  • You have spent most or all of your career in-house, working at fast-paced companies that value quick decision-making.
  • You have managed outside help, whether it’s outside counsel, contractors, or other outsourced work.
  • You have a strong business acumen, and are able to balance the risks vs. the rewards.
  • You love getting things right, but that doesn’t stop you from getting things done.
  • You’ve never met a legal process you couldn’t simplify and improve.
  • You’re looking for a supportive team that revels in solving problems, supporting one another, and celebrating the wins.
  • You adapt quickly to changing processes and new priorities – the only constant here is change.
  • Have a bachelor’s degree (no JD required).
