About the Team

At DoorDash we’re building the world’s leading last-mile logistics platform and we believe that to accomplish this, we’ll need to iterate a few times along the way. This is a unique opportunity to help define and shape a fast-growing, global brand, and improve the future of work and last mile commerce as we know it.

Our Dasher & Logistics team owns the end to end Dasher experience from supply & efficiency to net-new bets. Design plays an important role, providing important thought partnership in product development. This is where you come in.

About the Role

DoorDash is looking for a Senior Product Designer to lead the strategy and experience for the standalone apps for DoorDash drivers – A.K.A. Dashers. Our Dashers are at the heart of our logistics business. The Dasher design team makes a massive impact on the millions of driver’s experience throughout the full end-to-end lifecycle and our mission is to help Dashers reach their financial goals however they choose. As DoorDash has grown, we’ve evolved to support groceries, convenience, pets and other exciting product areas—the Dasher app and underlying logistics platform need to flex to accommodate all their nuances at scale, which makes this a very compelling and one-of-a-kind design challenge.

The role can be based in San Francisco or New York and will report directly into the Head of Design for Dasher & Logistics. This is a hybrid role, with some time in-office and some time remote.

You're excited about this opportunity because you will…

  • Create step-change improvements by envisioning the long-term Dasher experience and realizing them through execution on new products and services for dashers.
  • Partner closely with cross-functional teams in PM, Engineering, Research and Operations to influence our product and design strategy by building a great user experience for our complex three-sided marketplace.
  • Push the creative boundaries of our dasher experiences, that sets a new baseline for craft and impact the product will have in the industry.

We're excited about you because…

  • You have 5+ years of work experience and a strong portfolio showcasing your ability to maintain a high bar for craft at scale and experience leading new initiatives and delivering impact in a team environment.
  • You think of yourself as a craftsperson elevating quality, usually find yourself sweating over the lowest level of details and care about elevating the overall experience.
  • You use a first-principles approach and aren’t afraid to try new things to create the future.
