Job Description

About the Team

Our mission is to perfect local grocery and convenience shopping, making DoorDash the default way people stock their refrigerators. We are solving for:

  • Maximal local selection: bring local inventory of all convenience and grocery retailers onto DoorDash real-time platform
  • Intuitive shopping experience: help consumers find products they seek; delight with unexpected finds; make grocery shopping on DoorDash a breeze - for a quick snack, tonight’s meal or entire week ahead. 
  • Perfect deliveries: consumers get what they ordered, or a great substitution - despite ever-fluctuating in-store inventories. Dashers have the right tools to fulfill orders quickly and accurately. 

About the Role

  • Build a massive, high quality product catalog and inventory systems - with observability, quality scoring, and operational controls. Mitigate noisy and imperfect retailer inventory data with in-store inventory management tools.
  • Enable a highly-intuitive and personalized merchandising and shopping experience via great core retail infrastructure 
  • Build services and apps for folks fulfilling orders in stores. 
  • Build effective tools for folks managing merchandising and store operations - with tight data feedback loops and guardrails against user error.  
  • Build a vast local product graph along with a great data integration experience for merchants 

We’re excited about you because…

  • You have built and supported teams with track record of delivering impactful products
  • You have designed, built and extensively operated distributed systems at scale - ie millions of transactions, millions of users, high QPS. You have made sound trade-offs in building for MVP vs building for scale. 
  • Understand service-oriented architecture and/or microservices; have designed data models, interfaces and SLOs/SLAs that have proven effective.
  • Are an effective technical communicator - your designs clearly communicate the what/how/why: goals, solutions, trade-offs. Engineers working off your designs are set up for success. Customers understand what the solution will / will not do - and on what timeline. 
  • Experience up-leveling engineers around you leading by example and/or creating technical leverage.

About DoorDash

At DoorDash, our mission to empower local economies shapes how our team members move quickly, learn, and reiterate in order to make impactful decisions that display empathy for our range of users—from Dashers to merchant partners to consumers. We are a technology and logistics company that started with door-to-door delivery, and we are looking for team members who can help us go from a company that is known for delivering food to a company that people turn to for any and all goods.

DoorDash is growing rapidly and changing constantly, which gives our team members the opportunity to share their unique perspectives, solve new challenges, and own their careers. We're committed to supporting employees’ happiness, healthiness, and overall well-being by providing comprehensive benefits and perks including premium healthcare, wellness expense reimbursement, paid parental leave and more.

Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

We’re committed to growing and empowering a more inclusive community within our company, industry, and cities. That’s why we hire and cultivate diverse teams of people from all backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. We believe that true innovation happens when everyone has room at the table and the tools, resources, and opportunity to excel.
