About the Team

DoorDash is revolutionizing the delivery experience for merchants and customers by offering the next generation of fulfillment services. We’re looking for someone to join the Drive New Verticals team to rapidly scale our next big bet.

About the Role

The Manager, Drive Strategy and Operations will build the roadmap for our business’s aggressive growth goals. You will call the shots on how to grow volume with our Merchant partnerships and will be responsible for building playbooks, improving existing processes, and implementing our growth strategies. You will work with product, engineering, operations, business development, and other teams to make your vision a reality. The ideal candidate for this role should be a self-starter with an entrepreneurial mindset, able to take ownership and create plans from scratch, and drive execution while obtaining cross-functional buy-in to achieve Drive’s strategic goals.

You will report to the Senior Manager, Drive New Verticals S&O (Growth).

You’re excited about this opportunity because you will…

  • Strategize: Develop the strategy to grow a high-potential offering within a high-growth business, with a focus on Merchant
  • Build: Build hands-on the processes, tools, and connections to achieve that growth.
  • Operate: Get to the lowest level of detail. You’ll have a deep understanding of how our business operates, and use that to scale.
  • Collaborate: You value partnerships, and will excel at working both directly with our Merchants and across Business Development, Operations, Product, Engineering, and more to ensure our Mxs are successful and grow with us.
  • Lead: Lead high visibility, cross-functional projects that address Drive’s most unique and challenging questions
  • Analyze: You are adept at analyzing complex data sets paired with partner team feedback to provide insights and recommendations to our leadership.

We’re excited about you because…

  • You have 6+ years of experience, ideally with experience in strategy, operations, or partnership management at a tech, retail/ecom, or logistics company
  • You imagine, develop, and execute on workstreams from start to completion with little oversight
  • You have a talent for summarizing complex problems, and can translate high-level goals into actionable plans
  • You are resourceful and can engage other teams and resources to independently figure out answers to nebulous questions
  • You oscillate easily from strategic considerations to tactical execution
  • Are a self-starter who is energized by a difficult problem
  • You display extreme ownership across every workstream while ruthlessly prioritizing what will actually move the needle
  • You maintain a careful balance between attention to detail and swift execution
  • You operate comfortably in ambiguous environments while maintaining a strong bias for action
  • You communicate precisely dependent on audience and level of detail necessary to share
  • Experience in a complex or high-growth environment required
