General Manager, Strategy & Operations

Full Time Texas


The US Local Markets team manages the multiple products of DoorDash as a portfolio of geographies, identifying regional and local opportunities to accelerate growth for our centralized product teams within an integrated strategy.

About the Role

DoorDash is looking for a General Manager to join the Strategy & Operations team to accelerate growth opportunities in the Texas Region (Texas, Arkansas, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Orleans).

You have experience blending analytics and creativity to scope and implement solutions, working as an individual contributor and as part of a larger team. You move deliberately and with speed. You can reliably manage multiple work streams at a low level of detail.

You will report to the General Manager of the US Local Markets team and manage a Strategy + Operations team based in Austin.  We expect this role to be hybrid with some time in-office and some time remote.

You're excited about this opportunity because you will…

  • Own business outcomes — Set and drive towards regional targets for growth and profitability
  • Build the team — Recruit, lead, and develop high-performing candidates on the US Local team
  • Influence – Work cross-functionally with Ops, Product, Finance, Analytics, Sales, Government Relations, & Business Development partners to support strategic projects and harness opportunities crucial to the growth of your region
  • Operate – Figure out how to get from A to B–then actually make it happen.
  • Experiment - Run tests and scale insights. Embrace the challenge of having multiple paths forward and no right answer. Building a business in a competitive market will not be easy.

We're excited about you because…

  • 7+ years of cross-functional leadership experience
  • 4+ years of leadership and management experience
  • You have a bias towards action and can thrive in a fast-paced, ambiguous environment
  • You're willing to get your hands dirty and you're open to feedback
  • You crave responsibility and want to shape the direction of the market
  • You have led and motivated a team before
  • You have a talent for summarizing complex problems, can translate high-level goals into relevant plans
  • You have experience in a complex or high-growth environment
  • Early stage startup experience a plus
  • Bachelor’s degree required, MBA or Masters Degree a plus
  • Logistics, Product Management, Business Operations and/or Partnerships experience a plus
