About the Team

Our Ads & Promotions team operates at the intersection of e-commerce and advertising, surfacing and monetizing relevant content that benefits our core audiences. We provide digital solutions to help advertisers reach DoorDash audiences. This role will be responsible for owning a portion of our International Ads and Promotions businesses – one of our fast-growing business lines within this overall high-priority business for DoorDash.

About the Role

  • Single-handedly own the overall strategy and execution for certain products across DoorDash’s international markets (Canada, Australia, and New Zealand) – including both ad campaigns and/or promotions campaigns.
  • Leverage data to root-cause weekly performance gaps and identify (and implement) incremental growth initiatives.
  • Partner with Sales and Account Management teams to build goals, understand opportunities for improvement, own end-to-end development and execution of improved processes, and build a path to revenue attainment.
  • Work cross-functionally with Product, Engineering, Data Science and other tech teams to scope new features & products, monitor product adoption, and unblock obstacles and technical challenges.
  • Work with local go-to-market teams on product releases, training adoption, objection-handling, and troubleshooting.

You’re excited about this opportunity because you will…

  • Own: You are not afraid to single-handedly own a revenue target, and build plans to hit business goals.
  • Build: You like going from 0-1, and 1-10. You want to get in early, identify trends, and leverage insights to scale.
  • Operate: You want to roll up your sleeves, get to the lowest level of detail, and scale.
  • Collaborate: You value cross-functional partnerships, and will thrive at working across Operations, Product, Sales, Engineering, and more to deliver results.
  • Enable: You love equipping other teams with what they need to be successful. You are able to take feedback and put it into action.

We’re excited about you because…

  • You have 3+ years of experience in a role in strategy & operations, business planning, consulting, program management, or product marketing (advertising experience a plus).
  • You have a proven track record of leading initiatives, working cross-functionally, and delivering on business goals in a complex, fast-moving environment.
  • You’re a data-driven problem solver who is fluent in Excel/Google Sheets (SQL experience is a plus, and willingness to learn SQL is a must).
  • You’re eager to dive into difficult problems without a playbook, diagnose root causes, analyze data, and devise an action plan.
  • You thrive while wearing multiple hats and working across a variety of projects and workstreams.
