About the Team

Our Advertising & 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 all DoorDash audiences (consumer, dasher, and merchant).

About the Role

We currently have 3 open Associate Manager roles across our Ads & Promotions teams (Ads Platform, Restaurant Supply, and CPG Ads Insights). Though day to day will vary across these three roles, generally in each role you’ll be expected to:

  • Own measurable business outcomes (OKRs)
  • Drive business outcomes through innovative initiatives
  • Identify trends and develop recommendations; enable strategic decision making with insightful data
  • Partner cross-functionally to develop processes that allow our business to scale
  • Manage and execute on reporting / monitoring / optimization tactics

  • Operate - You want to roll up your sleeves, get to the lowest level of detail, and scale.
  • Collaborate - You have strong communication skills and are able to convey complex messages to multiple audiences. You value cross-functional partnerships, and will thrive at working across various teams to deliver results. You are able to take feedback and put it into action.
  • Problem Solve - You like diving into ambiguous problems. When given an ambitious goal, you enjoy thinking about the milestones necessary to get there. You enjoy diving into problems without a playbook and answering questions with data.

We’re excited about you because…

  • You have 4+ years of experience in strategy & operations, consulting, high growth startup, consumer tech, e-commerce, or product management. Prior advertising / ad tech experience preferred!
  • You have intermediate/advanced SQL experience
  • You have exceptional analytical experience (Excel/Google Sheets), and are proficient at (or a fast learner of) a variety of other tech platforms.
  • You are comfortable working across multiple projects & priorities and hitting deadlines
  • You have a proven track record of leading projects and delivering insights needed to hit business goals in a complex and fast moving environment
  • You are process driven. You excel in getting to a low-level of understanding, and driving operational improvements accordingly.
  • You are a problem solver. You don’t need a playbook. You dive into difficult problems and come up with a plan.
