Role Description: 

DoorDash is quickly expanding its first-of-a-kind social impact program, Project DASH, to help governments and nonprofits serve their constituents through last mile delivery.  Examples of services may include food rescue from grocery stores and restaurants to soup kitchens, delivery of food packages from schools & food pantries to families, or the delivery of supplies and other essential items to senior citizens and other vulnerable populations. This role will take on end-to-end leadership of this new business unit in collaboration with our Policy and Social Impact team, and lead a high-performance team of operators. The GM will help set a long-term course for this effort and scale it against audacious goals in the years ahead. In doing so, the GM will help transform the way that governments and non-profits service their constituents, impacting millions of people in communities around the world.

What You’ll Do:

  • Own: Set a course, and lead your cross functional team to achieve P&L outcomes, OKRs and KPIs for DoorDash’s Government & Non-Profit effort 
  • Build: Design, launch and scale the processes to turn the Government and Non-Profit effort into a high performance operating team
  • Lead: Source, hire and lead a world-class team of builders and owners in support of our Government and Non-Profit partners
  • Collaborate: Work closely with our Public Policy and Communications teams  to ensure alignment with our mission, values, and strategic goals
  • Sell: Partner with our Policy team to build relationships with senior government and non-profit leaders to embed DoorDash as a mission-critical function in their communities

  • You possess first-class business presentation skills and executive presence
  • You strike a balance between attention to detail and strategic thinking

  • Bachelor’s degree required, MBA or Masters Degree preferred 
  • 10+ years of cross-functional leadership and management experience 
  • GM / P&L ownership experience strongly preferred
  • Prior experience as an operator in a high-growth, complex environment
