DoorDash operates a food delivery and logistics platform. Customers can place orders through the DoorDash app or website, and a DoorDash delivery person will pick up the food from the restaurant and deliver it to the customer’s location.
DoorDash currently hires for two types of jobs: delivery and software engineering.
Delivery jobs are by far the most popular. They involve picking up orders from local restaurants and delivering them to customers. Delivery drivers, also known as “Dashers,” can use their own car, bicycle, or scooter to make deliveries.
Software engineering jobs at DoorDash involve designing and building the technology that powers the DoorDash platform—for example, developing the DoorDash app and the ecosystem that supports the delivery network. In addition, engineers work on various projects, including improving the user experience, scaling the platform to support more users and restaurants, and adding new features to the DoorDash app.
