About the Team

DoorDash is looking for a Head of Selection to help grow DoorDash’s US restaurants business. We are seeking someone to join our team to set & execute our selection strategy, including identifying, targeting, and acquiring the best content for customers in every city. The selection team sits on the US Marketplace team and is a critical driver of growth for the business, meaning you’ll have the opportunity to make a big impact on the company at large.

About the Role

We are looking for someone who enjoys both crafting strategy and rolling their sleeves up to execute the strategy to join our US Marketplace team, focusing on Restaurant selection. The Director, Strategy & Operations, will oversee the restaurant content strategy on the platform with the goal of defining and offering customers the selection they want in every neighborhood. You will work with product, engineering, sales, operations, business development, and other teams to make your vision a reality.

We expect this role to be hybrid with some time in-office and some time remote.

You’re excited about this opportunity because you will…

  • Strategize: You will develop the strategy to best serve our customers through a period of growth.
  • Build: You will develop and lead 0 to 1 opportunities. You will create the roadmap for new products and services, determining how to invest our resources to achieve desired outcomes.
  • Operate: You want to get to the lowest level of detail, and scale.
  • Collaborate: You value partnerships, and will excel at working across Operations, Product, Sales, Engineering, and more to bring new products and services to merchants.
  • Lead: You will manage a strong team. You’ll hire and retain top talent, and build team culture.

We’re excited about you because…

  • You have 15+ years of experience in a role in strategy and operations, general management, business operations, or management consulting.
  • You are strategic and driven with a passion for the local delivery economy and an understanding of the competitive landscape
  • You have a talent for summarizing complex problems, and can translate high-level goals into actionable plans
  • You have people management experience, and will enjoy developing a team of operators.
  • You don’t need a guide. You dive into difficult problems and come up with a plan.
