About the Team

The Merchant Experience Strategy & Operations team oversees Merchant satisfaction at DoorDash; our vision is to make DoorDash the most trusted delivery partner for your local deli, or your favorite enterprise restaurant. Together, we help merchants drive profitable growth and operate seamlessly on our platform. We collect data and act on feedback from our merchants; we work cross-functionally to prioritize their largest pain points and drive solutions with a Merchant-first lens. In this role, you will partner with our Mx Experience Product team and cross-functional ops teams to ensure Merchants can operate seamlessly on DoorDash.

About the Role

  • Shape and define our platform strategy based on quantitative and qualitative data
  • Partner with product and engineering to drive changes to the platform, owning go-to-market for product launches
  • Serve as the voice of the merchant in internal forums, representing the Mx needs across teams and gathering insights across account management teams and surveys

We’re excited about you because…

  • You want to affect change every day and can operate in energizing environments
  • You enjoy solving problems and can translate high-level goals into executional plans
  • You have an ability to build cross-functional partnerships at all levels across technical and non-technical teams to achieve common goals
  • You are excited to shape the direction of the company
  • You have completed your Bachelor's degree and have 3+ years work experience in consulting, bizops, strategy, operations, technology, startups, or related experiences
  • You have advanced Analytical skills (SQL a plus)
