  • You seek development opportunities within the field of Instructional Design and excel with learning progressive trends in the industry
  • You have a One Team One Fight mentality
  • You have high bandwidth and no problem juggling multiple tasks at once
  • You are a sponge, absorbing the deep knowledge of experts in diverse processes across Support Ops, and instilling them into concise and training materials
  • You are not interested in the status quo. You love thinking about new opportunities or process improvement potential
  • You are a writer who is whittling complex ideas down to be concise with an eye for design

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.
