The New Verticals group is a collection of Product Managers, Engineers, and Operators defining and building on our vision of connecting customers to the best of their cities all across the world – whether that's a new neighborhood restaurant, a trusted nearby grocery store, or a local retailer.

About the Role

DoorDash is looking for product-oriented Engineering Managers to lead full stack teams within New Verticals. These teams are composed of iOS, Android, web, and backend engineers working with cross functional partners to build and scale new categories like Retail, Alcohol, and Convenience, on top of DoorDash's platform.

As an Engineering Manager, you will partner closely with your Product and Business partners to define the roadmap and vision for your team, while helping your team members develop. This team is based in NYC, with gatherings in our New York office a few times per quarter for planning, feature launches, or social activities.

  • Manage, support, and grow a team of up to 7+ product/full-stack engineers in owning the expansion and experience for multiple Categories
  • Partner closely with recruiting and oversee the hiring process for your team, to grow a diverse and inclusive organization
  • Collaborate with Product, Operations, Design, and other stakeholders to determine the team's roadmap, vision, and strategy. Manage execution against that roadmap.
  • Partner with the sales & operations teams to define and work on product improvements

We're excited about you because you have…

  • 2+ years of experience in people management leading a full-stack team (backend, web, & mobile)
  • Experience scaling products and teams in fast-paced environments
  • Hands-on leadership and strong product intuition
  • Humility - willing to get into the details and open to feedback
  • Experience with distributed system design, system scaling, and performance optimization
  • Adaptable, resilient, and able to thrive in ambiguity - things can change quickly, and you'll need to help the team adjust and evolve
