About the Team

Merchant Services (MxS) is the home of onboarding, activations, content updates, post-sale updates/enablement, point-of-sale (POS), and vendor network operations for all Merchants on the DoorDash platform. Our department's goal is to create a seamless back-end process that keeps our Merchants serving up orders without interruption. We have several departments, including Core Onboarding; New Verticals, New Geos, and Platform; Menu Quality, Vendor, and GTM; and OpEx.

About the Role

As a Merchant Services Supervisor, you will motivate and challenge your team members to be 1% better every day. You will work with our cross functional partners and team by identifying ways to improve the onboarding process, handle high-volume catalog builds and updates, and perform root cause analysis of issues that affect the onboarding, catalog creation and activation experience for our Merchants (both restaurants and non-restaurants). You will be a thoughtful partner to the current Merchant Services Managers, while championing the vision of the NV team at DoorDash across the entire platform. You will report into the Merchant Services Manager for one of the following departments: Core Onboarding; New Verticals, New Geos, and Platform; Menu Quality, Vendor, and GTM; or OpEx.

You're excited about this opportunity because you will…

  • Own your team’s performance; hold weekly 1:1s to review performance, and provide coaching
  • Get in the weeds to root cause issues, and prevent them from happening again.
  • Build a bench of operators that bring creative solutions to a high-volume workspace.
  • Build easy-to-understand, relevant, insightful content - you will add value by helping our teams to find the right answer in the right place at the right time.
  • Work cross functionally to ensure the right solutions are being delivered.
  • Lead weekly team meetings; prepare slides and present during weekly business reviews.
  • Resolve high-visibility escalations by understanding case details and troubleshooting a store, jumping on a call with merchants/brands/providers, while keeping the merchant experience in the forefront

We're excited about you because…

  • You have 3+ years of people management or supervisor experience
  • You have 5+ years of experience working in operations, customer service, or other relevant fields
  • You have experience using Google Suite or related software (including data creation / management in Google Sheets)
  • You have experience using SQL or similar query language to search in internal databases
  • You have supported a team with setting and achieving targets
  • You have supported a direct report with career growth and performance
  • You have previous experience and a proficient understanding of Salesforce and Google Sheets
