Logistics Associate, Caviar at DoorDash
About The Team
Caviar for Companies (CFC) is changing the way businesses and employees order food from restaurants. We believe that everyone should have access to the best eateries in their city without any hassles. Every day our Catering Captains pick up supplies from our Inventory Hubs, then pick up food from restaurant partners and deliver catered meals to thousands of diners at some of the world’s hottest startups and well known brands. Our Logistics and Live-Ops teams sits at the center of our entire Operations organization and is the command center of live operations in the field.
About The Role:
The Logistics Associate role with Caviar for Companies is a full time role.
As a Logistics associate, you will assess and logistically optimize the job orders each week for hundreds of meals - all with varying complexity and nuances. Then you’ll organize our Catering Captains around the nation to match those jobs to ensure we serve every meal hot and on-time, every time. Your actions and decisions will directly affect the success of our business.
Everything from labor cost optimization to Captain experience in the field to Client experience at meal time is affected by the Logistics team. We depend on you to connect the right Captain with the right Client with the right schedule. Often, orders change last minute or Captain availabilities shift, but getting the details perfect and adapting in real time is how we keep our clients happy.
To do that, we need you to be willing to go the extra mile, to have an almost obsessive approach to getting the details right, and be an excellent communicator.
