About the Team

The Trust & Safety Manager improves the quality of DoorDash operations through investigation of safety incidents, implementation of quality measures for users, collaboration across teams, and people leadership. On demand food delivery has many advantages; however, it requires extremely challenging logistics to ensure DoorDash is delivering the best service to Customers, Dashers and Merchants.

Trust & Safety presents a united front to protect the experience of Customers, Dashers and Merchants while solving these logistical challenges. This team’s work helps in building relationships while protecting the DoorDash brand. We work with our internal partners to solve and reduce escalations, monitor daily quality, improve response times, and guide tool usage and efficiencies.

  • Can identify trends and apply product and operational countermeasures
  • Can operate autonomously while working with partners
  • Are unafraid of change – our growing team takes on new workflows and responsibilities
  • Are responsible and reliable – you independently track your progress towards goals, and will ask for help of communicate upwards if you run into any problems
