About the Team

The Communications team is responsible for telling the story of how DoorDash empowers local economies by connecting customers to the best of their communities. The team is a nimble, high-impact group that works cross-functionally with key business stakeholders, touching every corner of the organization. A roll-up-your-sleeves attitude, meticulous attention to detail, and out-of-the-box thinking, coupled with a true team spirit and the ability to juggle projects and priorities, are what make this group so effective. This role on the team will require a deep understanding of financial and business communications, financial media, tax and accounting, and, at least to some extent, investor engagement.

This role will involve:
  • Leading financial communications within the larger corporate communications team in a fast-paced environment
  • Working closely with the DoorDash Finance, Accounting, Tax, and Legal teams, as well as the broader corporate communications team, to develop and communicate our financial story 
  • Partnering with senior leadership to develop a strong corporate and business narrative told through financial communications
  • Representing the communications team in key cross-functional discussions and decisions
  • Driving strategic communications initiatives to showcase the health of the DoorDash business—and remain in close partnership with Finance, Accounting, Tax, and Legal
  • Managing critical external partner relationships, ranging from outside counsel to partnered PR agencies
  • Developing strategic media engagement and execution strategy to elevate the company’s relationship with key financial and business media and influential voices at the national and international level 
We’re excited about you because…
  • You have a minimum of 6-8 years experience in communications, PR or journalism
  • You have an exceptional command of business and financial communications
  • You are comfortable distilling compelling stories to precise numbers and turning precise numbers into compelling stories— and can effectively present complex subject matter clearly and concisely.
  • You are self-motivated with strong organizational skills, analytical talent and attention to detail
  • You have deep experience flourishing in fast-paced, fluid and challenging environments
  • You are able to work effectively with multiple constituents, including peers and executive management
  • You possess excellent people and project management skills, with the ability to lead and manage multiple time-sensitive projects under tight deadlines
  • You take your work, but not yourself, seriously—and maintain a good sense of humor about both
