The People Strategy & Operations team is the “central nervous system” for DoorDash’s People team. The team oversees:
About the Role
We are hiring a Director of Special Projects who will lead cross-functional strategic projects. You will initially be responsible for leading our post-COVID workforce strategy and planning efforts, in collaboration with executives and stakeholders across departments such as People, Legal, Workplace Services, IT, and Finance. Following this initial initiative, the role will take on new initiatives to support our rapidly growing People team.
This role offers a unique opportunity to help shape the future of how and where we work at DoorDash, and it requires a combination of holistic strategic thinking, influence, change management, and rapid execution. The cross-functional team you lead will be responsible for everything from creating policy to planning for office space (especially given our rapid growth over the past year), to defining success metrics. This role offers a tremendous opportunity for innovation and thought leadership – we are in new territory – and the outcomes will impact employee engagement and retention.
The role reports to our Chief People Officer.

We are operators – We believe the only way to predict the future is to build it. Creating solutions to lead our company and our industry is what we do on every project, every day.
We are learners – Everyone here is continually learning on the job, no matter if we’ve been in a role for one year or one minute. We are committed to learning and implementing what is best for our customers, merchants, and dashers.
We are one team – The magic of DoorDash is our people, together making our inspiring goals attainable and driving us to greater heights.
