About the Team

Our CPG 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 CPG advertisers reach DoorDash audiences. This role will be responsible for the operations and performance of one of our core solutions, Sponsored Products.

About the Role

We’re looking for a detail oriented, highly-motivated individual to support our CPG Ads business. In this role, you’ll collaborate between our Strategy + Operations and Sales teams to build, monitor, and optimize performance media campaigns for our CPG advertisers. This is an exciting opportunity to support a growing, early stage business at DoorDash.

  • Manage the end to end campaign process - set up, monitoring, and reporting
  • Analyze metrics to make strategic campaign optimization recommendations aligned to unique advertiser goals
  • Contextualize results through your understanding of digital marketing
  • Serve as performance media subject matter expert across key clients, sharing best practices and optimization recommendations
  • Lead new Advertiser onboarding efforts and ad platform trainings
  • Create, document and update campaign operations processes
  • Support ad hoc insights and internal auditing requests
  • Manage communications across multiple internal teams and external clients

You will report into the Senior Manager, Ads + Promos on our CPG Strategy & Operations team in our Ads + Promos organization.

You’re excited about this opportunity because you will…

  • Analyze and Influence: You enjoy slicing and dicing data, and can synthesize insights that drive tangible results.
  • Problem Solve: You like diving into ambiguous problems. When given an ambitious goal, you can map out and execute on the milestones necessary to get there.
  • Build: You’re not afraid to try something new. You enjoy going from 0 to 1 and building net-new processes that scale.
  • Communicate: You have strong communication skills and are able to distill complex messages to multiple audiences, internally and externally.

We’re excited about you because…

  • You have 3+ years of experience in performance marketing at a digital agency, retail media network, or in a CPG environment
  • You understand the e-commerce marketing funnel and how advertisers can leverage key media mechanics (ROAS, CPC, etc.) to drive specific business outcomes
  • Comfortable leading client-facing conversations and sharing data-backed insights and recommendations
  • Excellent analytical abilities (comfort with Excel required; SQL preferred) with strong attention to detail
  • You’re a self-starter that thrives in an ambiguous, fast-paced, and changing environment
  • Comfortable balancing between operating at the lowest level of detail and leading strategically
