About the Team

The Dasher & Logistics team is responsible for ensuring every delivery is completed with speed, accuracy and a positive Consumer, Merchant and Dasher experience. Our Dasher & Logistics owns initiatives that touch all parts of the Dasher life cycle ranging from supply & demand, to cost & quality, to Dasher pay, to Dasher retention, to order batching and beyond. We care about metrics like delivery times, cost per order, delivery quality, dasher compensation, and many more!

About the Role

You will sit at the confluence of our logistics system and Delivery Quality with big business impact. Your goal is to make sure every Customer gets exactly what they ordered and gets it on time by finding efficiencies both in the delivery process, getting into the weeds and really understanding what's happening on the ground, developing a solution, then scaling that impact through working with our product teams. Impact of doing this well is hundreds of millions of dollars of value per year, which we will reinvest right back into our audiences as better earnings for Dashers and lower prices for Consumers. You will report into the Director of Quality in our Strategy & Operations organization.

  • You want to affect change every day and can operate in energizing environments
  • You have a talent for managing complex projects, driving high-level goals into measurable plans, and enjoy implementing processes at the lowest level of detail
  • You love thinking about problems from a fundamentals approach, you translate strategic vision into measurable success metrics and applicable plans
  • You seek exposure to different types of problems and want to try your hand at different sides of the business
  • You can build a diverse team of high performers, helping champion development of DoorDash's future leaders
  • You lead and motivate teams to set and achieve aspirational goals
