Job Description

About the Team

We’re looking for a hands-on builder, strategic, analytical problem solver to help build and scale DoorDash’s next billion dollar business, DashMart. The DashMart team is focused on building a new type of convenience store, offering both household essentials and local restaurant favorites to our customers' doorsteps. 

This new role will sit on our Central Operations team and lead the build out of our dashboards and analytical tooling to help our operations team root cause issues and drive towards site goals. You will drive consistency across the way we evaluate metrics and conduct analysis. You will be a thought-leader across the DashMart organization by driving data analysis and dashboards across a variety of operational surface areas, spanning from Customer Quality to Operational Efficiency to Workforce Planning to Safety. You may also have experience in operations or analytics, with a high bar for solving complex problems leveraging data as your source of truth. 

About the Role

You will report into a Manager on our Central Operations team within the New Business Verticals organization. Once our offices reopen, we expect this role to remain in a remote capacity with field time spent within our DashMart warehouses. 

You’re excited about this opportunity because you will…

  • Strategize. Develop the strategy for improving our DashMart operations.
  • Operate. Figure out how to get from A to B–then actually make it happen.
  • Analyze. Strong Analytical background including comfort with large data sets, SQL preferred. Create dashboards from scratch, and use data to identify root causes and monitor solutions.
  • Collaborate. Work with local operators and key cross-functional stakeholders.
  • Experiment. Run tests and scale insights. Embrace the challenge of having multiple paths forward and no right answer.

We’re excited about you because…

  • You're equally comfortable operating at 10,000 feet and 1 foot. You don't hesitate to get in the weeds and operate at the lowest level of detail, but you're just as comfortable thinking long-term and inspiring a team.
  • You're unafraid of uncharted territory. Rapid change and learning is exciting to you, and you excel in new environments.
  • You love data. You let data win arguments, and you're comfortable pulling and modeling large datasets. You are excited to use SQL in your role.
  • You're an operator. You have a talent for managing complex projects, converting high-level goals into action, and converting insights into scalable processes.
  • You have 0-2 years of post-grad experience in operations, technology, consulting, strategy, business development, banking, analytics, high-growth or early-stage startup experience or related experience.
