About the Team

DoorDash is looking for top talent to play a pivotal role in growing our New Verticals Business in Australia and New Zealand! We are looking for someone who is excited about joining a fast-paced environment and driving our next wave of growth.

About the Role

We’re hiring a Senior Associate to focus on Affordability & Pricing to lead the strategy development and implementation of improved pricing structures in order to make the platform more affordable and accessible for New Verticals customers. You will use a significant degree of analytical thinking and quantitative analyses to drive growth and retention for the New Verticals team. We operate in a hybrid model, we prioritize getting our teams together in person once a quarter and you have the flexibility to work from home or the office on most days!

You’re excited about this opportunity because you will…

  • Strategize. From first principles, you’ll develop the optimal strategy for best serving our customers.
  • Lead and collaborate. This role will lean in on strategic, multi-category projects to ensure success during each quarter.
  • Build. You’ll have your fingerprints all over driving the growth of DoorDash’s next big businesses. You’ll do whatever it takes to launch, get 1% better every day, and scale something completely new. This means everything from high-level strategy to nitty-gritty operational details.
  • Experiment. Run tests and scale insights. Embrace the challenge of having multiple paths forward and no right answer. Growing a business in a competitive market will not be easy.
  • Analyze. You’ll assess the operational and financial impacts of your decisions, and iterate based on data.

We’re excited about you because…

  • You're equally comfortable operating at 10,000 feet and 1 foot. You don't hesitate to get in the weeds and operate at the lowest level of detail, but you're just as comfortable thinking long-term and inspiring a team.
  • You're unafraid of uncharted territory. Rapid change and learning is exciting to you, and you excel in new environments.
  • You like data. You let data win arguments, and you're comfortable pulling and modeling large datasets. You are excited to use (or learn) SQL in your role.
  • You're an operator. You have a talent for managing complex projects, converting high-level goals into action, and converting insights into scalable processes.
  • You have 3-5+ years of experience in operations, technology, consulting, strategy, business development, banking, analytics, high-growth or early-stage startup experience or related experience.
