DoorDash is building the world's most reliable on-demand, logistics engine for delivery! We're looking for talented engineers to join our fast-growing engineering team in our brand new engineering hub in São Paulo to help us develop the most secure, trustworthy, and safe marketplaces for DoorDash consumers, merchants and dashers.

DoorDash is growing rapidly and changing constantly, which gives our team members the opportunity to share their unique perspectives, solve new challenges, and own their careers. We're committed to supporting employees’ happiness, healthiness, and overall well-being by providing comprehensive benefits and perks including premium healthcare, wellness expense reimbursement, paid parental leave and more.

We’re committed to growing and empowering a more inclusive community within our company, industry, and cities. That’s why we hire and cultivate diverse teams of people from all backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. We believe that true innovation happens when everyone has room at the table and the tools, resources, and opportunity to excel.
